Start / Hawaii - New York

 

Signature sculptural pleats, bold yet refined colors, plus subtle abstract prints combine for a graphic journey through time and place. Consisting of the favorite designs, this collection is a reminder that a happy life is built upon balance. Each bag is named after a zip code, and carries its own story. Made in New York. 

It was May 2015. I postponed an important business meeting, and flew to the big island of Hawaii, one day before my birthday. I spent two weeks volunteering at a small organic farm and returned home refreshed. Three months later I did create a new collection, but I didn't present it. Instead, I followed my heart and took the new bags on the road. I bought myself a one-way ticket from New York to Prague on September 4th. Paris, Milan, Burgundy, Hamburg, Istanbul, Cappadocia, Kibaha, Arusha, Rawai and then Sichuan, my other home, followed…three months, four continents, more than 10 cities. I journeyed far and wide and returned with a balanced soul. 

“The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world, and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon” said by Paulo Coelho from The Alchemist. 

I started in New York, again, and this time will you come with me?
