While it seems like a natural extension, we don’t often see jewelers moving into the world of creating high-end handbags. Bochic took that leap to some beautiful results.
Jewelry brand Bochic will introduce a line of evening clutch bags in September, marking the brand’s first extension beyond fine jewelry.
Bochic will introduce the handbag collection at the Westin Hotel Paris during Paris Fashion Week, after which it will be available worldwide through events such as trunk shows and on the Bochic website.
Price points start at $2,500.
The bags in the initial collection are called “Alicia, “Gilda” and Madeleline,” each inspired by film noir of the 1950s. Each style includes detailed gold handles that were made in Rome, meant to complement the leathers used for the body of the bag–crocodile, python, serpentine and sting ray.
To connect the line with the brand’s heritage, each bag also will feature jewelry detailing, created the same way as Bochic jewels, using enamel and natural precious stones such as rock crystal, onyx, and turquoise.
