|With so many shopping malls, outlet stores, markets and bazaars to choose from, newcomer NKHenry Handbags & Accessories knows that even the most savvy shopper sometimes becomes jaded by the sameness of it all. By infusing her own magical spirit into the NKHenry line of lush leather handbags and feminine accessories, designer Nakia Henry creates a well-adorned world in which sophisticated women long to spend time in.
Having already established the NKHenry line as one that offers solid craftsmanship, and impeccable attention to detail, Philadelphia-native Nakia Henry has modeled the business side of NKHenry after the world's leading fashion houses. Yet by releasing her most imaginative designs in smaller runs, this independent designer retains the feeling of exclusivity that women appreciate, making the brand that much more coveted.
Set to launch for the 2008 Winter/Holiday shopping season is the Mythology Handbag Collection. The first installment of this small, limited edition series includes The Aquarian, Sweet Venus, and Pisces Tote. Each piece draws inspiration from the fantastical nature of the zodiac, and translates it into trend-setting wool designs with decadent leather interiors and accents, such as the scalloped edging of the Pisces Tote, which represents the fluid nature of the water symbol.
"Producing the Mythology Collection in limited runs builds the sense of excitement for my customers," Nakia says. "By providing such an imaginative collection in select quantities, women enjoy that individual feeling they receive by being one of only a select few carrying each particular bag."
Designed with a minimalist sensibility, yet keeping in mind the essentials required by today's busy women, such as sturdy cell phone holders and multi-purpose pockets, NKHenry’s line of classic yet chic handbags have garnered her the interest of the Philadelphia City Paper, the Chestnut Hill Local, as well as a growing list eager to secure one of her exclusive Simple Sexy Cool totes.
NKHenry will also be revealing the Signature Clutch Collection in Winter 2008, and has further plans to expand the NKHenry line to include other small leather accessories that will accent the already eclectic mix of exquisite handcrafted goods.
By combining proven technique, style and quality with fanciful design, NKHenry has created a fantastically whimsical world of rich leather, sensuous suede, and lush fabrics for her customers to get lost in.
