    Default Katherine Kwei Purse Sample Sale (july 31)

    Calling all Katherine Kwei purse lovers - the designer is set to feature her collection of latest gorgeous pieces on sale over at online sample sale site HauteLook!!

    About the designer:
    Innovative design, exceptional quality, and a deep reverence for tradition are the foundation for accessories designer, Katherine Kwei's design philosophy. As a young girl, Kwei remembers spending afternoons with her grandmother folding wonton dumplings, knotting cords for necklaces filled with jade and precious stones, or looking over the intricate embroidery patterns of old quilts and robes. Kwei's grandmother who was a clothier "artiste" for silver screen legends Katherine Hepburn and Anthony Quinn, as well as a master at Chinese knotting --instilled in Kwei a deep reverence for her cultural roots and passion for working with her hands.

    Kwei's fashion career began in Public Relations with Louis Vuitton in Hong Kong, spanning 14 countries in the Asia Pacific region,where she developed a deep respect and appreciation for exceptional quality and design. Her love of handbags, passion for design,and entrepreneurial sprit inspired her to start her own line. In 2002 she left the company to pursue a degree in accessories design, graduating with an M.A. in Design and Technology for Accessories from the prestigious London College of Fashion (Cordwainers). While in London, she worked with bespoke floral applique handbag designer Susannah Hunter, as well as the trendy Billy Bag Company. After moving to New york, Kwei completed a six-month internship with the famed Zac Posen, working on his handbag and accessories line for the Spring/Summer 2006 collection.

    With the Spring/Summer 2007 launch of her own handbag line, Kwei's designs aspire to seamlessly blend modernity with tradition by creating her own unique texture by using luxury materials, while always keeping her signature Chinese "Eternity" knot-inspired weave as the main focus. Her goal is to create collections that are outstanding quality and timeless designs - much like the art of Chinese knotting that she learned from her grandmother, that has inspired and been integrated throughout her work.

    Deeply ingrained in her heritage, Kwei draws much of her inspiration from her Chinese roots as well as her experiences from living globally in nine different cities including Athens, London, Dubai,Hong Kong, and New York. Her enthusiasm to create is not only limited to accessories; Kwei has won awards batik and pottery, and is knowledgeable in other fields such as environmental science where she earned a B.S. from Cornell University.

    Kwei's own style blends everything from luxury brands to vintage pieces to the latest street wear to create a polished, yet chic and playful, figure-flattering silhouette. Her refined sensibility is reflected in her pieces appealing to a woman who is confident and secure in her own sense of style.

    Here are some pics of Katherine Kwei Bags

    Here are some bags from her current line:


    Clutches from the ‘Donna Colelction’.
    price: US$870, US$735


    Totes at US$1725,US$1055.


    From the ”Edna Collection”, pouchettes at US$555


    Totes & handbags, at US$890, US$1165.


    The ‘Teresa Collection’ US$210.


    Handbags with shoulder strap at US$705, US$1050.


    I wonder what the hautelook prices will be like. (I mentioned this in another thread) A couple days ago I was at Nordies and they had the Donna clutch in black and a dark purple color on sale for like $400... I am hoping that HL has a similar price range.. or less would be better either way I must have that clutch! Or do I want the handbag

    Do you plan on shopping the sale passion4fashion89?

    Wow hautelook sucks. I had the Stella Clutch + Zara Tote Snake Tote in my bag... I was browsing the site (refreshing the page) and 5 min later ... I'm not joking.. It's been 5 min the items were taken out of my basket.

    Soooooooo, get this. When I went back to refresh the page.. guess who was available?!!! The Donna in Plum Snake

    HOW THE HECK DID THAT HAPPEN?!?!?! It was like on hold ever since the sale started.





    MINE
    DONNA SNAKE CLUTCH
    ORIGINAL RETAIL / $870.00
    YOUR PRICE / $350.00 (60% OFF)
    Donna Snake Clutch

    Water Snake and Lambskin Clutch. With Swarovski Crystals. With Goatskin lining. Great for the nightlife.

    Fabrics:
    Water Snake
    Lambskin
    Goat Suede
    What's funny is I saw this bag a couple days ago and almost bought it!! It looks so much more vibrant purple in RL

    Although, what sucks is H.L. did not list out any size measurements. And what worries me is that this clutch comes in 2 sizes -- "evening bag" super small and "clutch" perfect. The only clue H.L. gives is that this bag retails normally for $870. Well.....there is the "Clutch" which retails for $1,000 and the "Evening Bag" that retails for $755.... Hum.

    Now the wait: See you in 3 weeks


    VGxoxo are you talking about the Stella's? I think they are pretty cute. Especially the beige nude version.
