2017 Finalist Anna Hegeman Van Der Borne


What is your inspiration for this sketch?
The Guess Logo and the instagram vibe.

Why did you select these particular materials to work for your sketch?
Leather works best for bags in my opinion, it's timeless and will last really well.

What is your design background?
I have been drawing, designing and creating, for my own brand for 5 years. I am autodidact.

Do you currently design your own handbags collection? If so, would your GUESS? Design fit into your current line?
I do and it would not fit in my current collection. It does have my design signature, but this bag is so \Guess"that no other brand could have it."""

What materials do you normally work with?
Leather and metal.

What can you offer to the GUESS? aesthetic?
I think I can offer a young, edgy design, finished in very high (made in Italy) quality. The bag will last forever and will become an icon over time. (Hope you can see it's potential in my quick sketch)! For the finishing I have in mind, please take a look at my website and the Pizza Bagpack so you can see an example of how I work.
