An Experiment In Geometry

BLACKSEA recently introduced their debut collection for Spring 2014 of luxury handbags for "the sophisticated, cosmopolitan girl about town." Designed and produced in New York using the finest materials and Italian leathers, BLACKSEA’s debut capsule collection is an experiment in geometry and color.

Named for and influenced by the childhood home of the Creative Director, the nautical influences of the Black Sea and its rich shipping heritage prevail. The shades of navy and white abound throughout SS14 and are reminiscent of the Odessan seafarers and sailors, a popular lifestyle and career choice for natives of the region. Sand and blue tones appear in the collection reminiscent of the golden sand beaches and various shades of the Black Sea itself, while black and white add a cosmopolitan edge.

Founded in 2013, BLACKSEA uses a juxtaposition (I love that word) of textures and fabrics to create accessories that are bold and understated at the same time, utilitarian and undeniably stylish- cotton weave and durable canvas add versatility and functionality. A youthful fascination with geometry and almost mathematical precision belies the meticulous craftsmanship of design. Structured shapes, bold colors, and balanced proportions define a collection that centers on the classic, versatile clutch.

Prices for the Spring 2014 collection range from $329 - $699; For more information on BLACKSEA or to view the full Spring 2014 collection, please visit www.BlackseaCollection.com.
