Atelier Annick [Cote d’Ivoire]
Born and raised in Paris to parents from Cote d’Ivoire, Annick Adjo’s African heritage has a strong influence over her statement handbag designs. Handmade by specialists in London and France, the Atelier Annick
silhouettes are of classic shapes enhanced by a touch of African elegance.
Buttery soft leathers and ‘run your hand over them’ skins add to the luxury feel. The Waneh patent leather bags include strips of kente hand-woven by artisans in Cote d’Ivoire, which add to the range’s distinctive style and finished of with handmade African cast-iron beads. Handbag linings include suede or African prints depending on the style, and due to some of the fabrics being printed exclusively for Atelier Annick in Africa some styles are available as Limited Edition only.
Atelier Annick’s bags are roomy designed to be functional as well as glamorous. Based in London, the company welcomes commissions, in addition to customising certain items within the collection upon request using African embellishment or Swarovski crystals for a more personalised touch.
These are handbags that defy quickly changing trends, instead are perfect wardrobe staples be it for work or a night out on the town.
Prices on the website range from £35-£750
