BLACKSEA is pleased to introduce their debut collection for Spring 2014 of luxury handbags for the sophisticated, cosmopolitan girl about town. Designed and produced in New York using the finest materials and Italian leathers, BLACKSEA’s debut capsule collection is an experiment in geometry and color. Named for and influenced by the childhood home of the Creative Director, the nautical influences of the Black Sea and its rich shipping heritage prevail.
The shades of navy and white abound throughout SS14 and are reminiscent of the Odessan seafarers and sailors, a popular lifestyle and career choice for natives of the region. Sand and blue tones appear in the collection reminiscent of the golden sand beaches and various shades of the Black Sea itself, while black and white add a cosmopolitan edge.
Founded in 2013, BLACKSEA uses a juxtaposition of textures and fabrics to create accessories that are bold and understated at the same time, utilitarian and undeniably stylish- cotton weave and durable canvas add versatility and functionality. A youthful fascination with geometry and almost mathematical precision belies the meticulous craftsmanship of design. Structured shapes, bold colors, and balanced proportions define a collection that centers on the classic, versatile clutch.
The Greenwich Clutch is perfectly sized for the girl-on-the-go with iPad compatibility and an interior zip pocket, while the Broadway Brief is slightly larger and easily fits a 13” computer- ideal for desk to drinks. The Tribeca Pochette provides a signature statement piece uniquely shaped to draw glares from copious stylish admirers, and can be carried either as a clutch or purse.
BLACKSEA seeks to create timeless staples for the polished, effortless, and modern woman who appreciates understated elegance while playfully balancing a downtown edge.
