What was your inspiration for this bag?
Named after the designer herself and her twin sister, the twin collection is inspired by a woman's strong independent spirit shown through the hardware bars that gives structure to the soft supple cowhide. The HEIRLOOM logo is an artistic extension of the letter H, incorporating Chinese traditional lattice work that is subtly sewn with trapunto workmanship, creating a perfect juxtaposition of edge and elegance.
What are the retail price-points of your line?
200 USD-600 USD
Do you change your silhouettes and materials every season?
A carefully curated line introduces a range of new styles while updating existing signature classics with new colors and fabrications. We are currently launching FW16.
What other handbag designers have inspired you?
We are inspired by different things around us, not a handbag designer in particular, but more of a lifestyle. However, Luxury brand Chanel and Affordable Luxury brand Tory Burch have been able to create a brand that embodies both retro and modernity, making timeless pieces that will still be.
What makes your line innovative and worth of overall?
Our signature Twin collection uniqley meshes the brand's logo as a design detail and less of a branding element, creating a unique and memorable timeless piece. HEIRLOOM strives to add innovative functions to a bag without sacrificing on design, that can be seen through the use of garmet zippers for closure that can open entirely for functionality. Each of our pieces have subtle details added inside the bag that can solve modern day women's needs, such as a slit pocket on the interior bottom for your subway card or key card, making life easier when exit/entering without having to fish for your wallet. HEIRLOOM designs are a reflection of modern day woman, with a beautiful elegant exterior and an interior with a story. It's all in the details.
