Arielle Salkin - Salkin

Finalist of the Best Handbag in Overall Style and Design

United States

2011 Finalist Arielle Salkin Salkin


What was your inspiration for this bag?
The inspiration for this bag came from the internal wooden structures of vintage aircraft and the materials used in traditional aviation garments.

What are the retail price-points of your line?

Do you change your silhouettes and materials every season?
I like to keep a diversity of product, but the shapes tend to change significantly collection to collection. A clutch, for instance, each season has a slightly different context and purpose so I like to keep that in mind.

What other handbag designers have inspired you?
It changes every season, but right now I really like the ease of Alexander Wang and Proenza Schoulder's PS1 line.

Where are your bags currently sold?
Right now my bags can only be purchased directly through me.
