Home > Winners > #54408


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Ebony Two

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Loop Bag

INSPIRATION:
Ebony is a modern interpretation of the 60ies, inspired by architecture, particularly the organic line used in it. Since nature and beauty are a constant source of inspiration, Ebony is the child of the two opposite: regular and compact in shape like a well designed building, but soft on the edges and colourful like a mature cherry.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Gretchen's Ebony Loop Bag is a chic accessory that will be loved forever. It can be carried by the top loop for a sophisticated ladylike appeal or worn thanks to the detachable and adjustable shoulder strap for a hands-free day. The Ebony Loop Bag is a timeless bag with the highest quality. It is a handmade bag, produced in more than 340 minutes and it contains more than 2625 stitches. Its compact but not stift structure makes sure to give the accessory a good-looking shape without sacrificing inside space to mere aesthetic. Ebony is beautiful on the outside as well as on the inside, a great companion ready to adapt to the others without losing its personality.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This bag is versatile: it can be worn as a backpack, as a shoulder bag or even carried by hand. It magnetic lock makes it easy and the zipper prevents it from being too easy to open. Its siye itĀ“just rght: not as big as a small suitcase, but big enough to accomodate a book or a mobile phone (even a really big one). In fact there is a pocket that serves that exact purpose.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project was developed in Berlin and it lasted 6 months.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The artisan process Cut to measure profile structures are applied onto a support material. This base structure is then covered with leather. With a blunt knife, the so called folding leg, each profile structure is retraced by hand, one by one.

CHALLENGE:
We wanted to create a bag that would use some of the elements of the 60s to create a timeless bag.

CLIENT/STUDIO/BRAND DETAILS
NAME:
Gretchen

PROFILE:
Berlin based accessory brand GRETCHEN was founded in 2006 by Anne-Christin and Michael Georg Schmitt with the wish to create timeless beautiful handbags made from the finest leathers. Anne-Christin, the creative mind behind Gretchen, grew up surrounded by leather goods of the family manufactory. A vita so closely interwoven with fine leather goods and her intuitive understanding of design reflect in her thoughtfully unconventional creations. Inspired by sculptural aesthetics and the architecture of nature, her handwriting is marked by feminine straightness and modern angles in distinguished shapes. Eclectic combinations of shiny glazed and waxed calf leathers and elaborate profile elements are signature trademarks of the Gretchen look making each Gretchen recognizable and unique and a true masterpiece of traditional craftsmanship Challenging the conventional Anne-Christin takes on a different angle and gives way to new concepts when designing her bags, purses, gloves and other fine leather goods. "Gretchen handbags are a tribute to women who cherish and cultivate their personal fashion style and who have an eye for the special!" Anne-Christin Schmitt
