Handbags That Only Can Be One Of A Kind

Inge Christopher gave Daniel+Lauren a glimpse Thursday of their upcoming fall/ winter 2017-2018 accessory line consisting of strong handbags constructed to shape, and dazzle the fashion world.

For the most part, Inge Christopher’s handbags are short clutches consisting of things like sequin, metal frames, faux leather, crystal, and SWAROVSKI crystal, while a good amount of bags have metal chains to complement their design.

The story of Inge Christopher begins with its founders Inge Hendromartono and Christopher Senn.

They met and fell in love over 30 years ago and this year will celebrate their 29th wedding anniversary along with the 29th anniversary of the business they have created and grown.

Both in demanding corporate jobs when they met, they launched Inge Christopher to satisfy their desire to spend time with one another and blend raising a young family with a creative, entrepreneurial venture that allowed them to work, travel and grow together.

Inge was keen to establish an integral link between her two daughters and her family in Indonesia and Christopher was determined to own and manage a business.

Family, relationships and cultural roots are at the heart of the company and have endured as the principles on which Inge and Christopher rely to steer its course.

The collaboration between Inge and Christopher brought together Christopher’s British reserve and business savvy with the love of color and fashion that was nurtured through three generations of Inge’s Batik family.

The company was incorporated in 1986 and sales launched in ‘87. Initially Inge explored inherited Indonesian traditions, making fine sterling silver jewelry and then designing handbags made from antique rattan mats.

The couple traveled extensively with their small daughters to build close relationships with manufacturers in Indonesia and China.

Inge Christopher grew through different design expressions and gradually became synonymous with the exquisite and much sought after evening accessories in fine leathers and fabrics with rich embellishments that now signify the brand.

The company has relied on a small family of employees, some of whom were hired in the very earliest months of business more than 29 years ago.

These enduring relationships support the traditions of design, quality and respect.

Passion for design has been the driving force of the Inge Christopher brand since its inception.

Tracing back to the prized Indonesian batiks, hand dyed and painted by Inge’s family in patterns reserved for nobility.

Some of these found their way into the hands of Dutch Royalty and the halls of museums in Washington, Los Angeles and beyond.

Inge brought this tradition to her work in the US, creating a San Francisco-based design team and creating several one-of-a-kind fabrics and prints.

Quality was her second obsession and led to a globetrotting search for the best beads and fabrics from all over the world.

Inge Christopher continues to be deeply invested in the art of design, evident in the exquisite materials, fine craftsmanship and unique details of each piece.

Now You’re Soil Is Just Right

Since Lauren Conrad declares today that it’s the right time to put her soil to good use due to excessive rain, Lauren tells about the ways to start an herb garden.

Not only is April perfect to start an herb garden, the herb garden can be started anywhere soil can be suited, which can end up being a perfect spot for you.

Your soil must be prepared by being moist, hardened soil needs to be broken up and watered, allowing roots to grow more easily.

Next, set your seeds by rows and inches apart, keep seeds covered in one-eighth inch soil,  water, cover garden in plastic, and take off plastic once you see your garden sprout.

Happy Birthday LC.com

Lauren Conrad, and her team of editors at LaurenConrad.com have a milestone to celebrate, it’s the 6th anniversary of LC.com in what’s it’s been since 2011.

Since then, LC.com has grown in leaps and bounds, and will continue to grow for many years to come, as Lauren and team LC celebrate continued success.

Dolls: The Best Part Of The Body

Amanda Lepore, an infamous and game-changing transexual fixture on the New York scene threw a launch party via Susanne Bartsch, Tuesday night for her new book, “Doll Parts”, at the Top Of The Standard Hotel in lower Manhattan’s Meatpacking District.

Over looking 18 stories high of New York City, Amanda’s party filled The Standard with tons of people in the fashion, gay, and lesbian community alike, as well as press people including myself to see the outragous high jinks that only “Doll Parts” can inspire.

Amanda filled the decadence to high capacity with a grand entrance, a glorious photo op for media and party revelers, as well as classy dancers dancing around the long bar either entertaining, or enlightening us with blissful nudity.

Amanda Lepore’s “Doll Parts” is more than just a memoir of Amanda’s groundbreaking life on the New York club scene, it’s a telling of Amanda who’s not afraid to break the rules, take risks, triumph over adversity.

Just as this party Tuesday night overlooking the Meatpacking District proved more than anything, Amanda’s “Doll Parts” also is inspiration for those who are not only young, but are transgender, letting them know to never be afraid to be who they are.

And if Ms. Lepore is a lover of anything, she says it has to be beauty.

During Press Week up in New York City two weeks ago, yours truly here at Daniel+Lauren met with James Murray, who’s the founder of Supreme Public Relations to see the top fashion designers he represents, and how each of them stand out.

The first collection is War Dog, a concept stemming from the high society youth of the modern world that are people who cause trouble, the 25-year-olds of now.

Next up is Heera Won, who not only created War Dog, but has 3 different lines like Haute Couture being custom couture gowns, where Heera brings street wear funk into high fashion couture custom gowns.

Ready To Wear also by Heera, is luxury based, tailored, conservative, but still flirty and playful where silhouettes & fabrics (gazer) are really strong, putting her own spin on an otherwise delicate fabric like gazer from the 1930’s & 1940’s.

There’s also Pritch London who specializes in leather, out on a mission to prove that leather can be worn all-year-round, with a variety of weights, colors, and styles consisting of high quality grade A lamb leather, fox fur, and exotic skins like water snake where the process is key to making this a wearable skin.

Ev Bessar, the first client of Supreme, is an avant garde brand with custom made one-of-a-kind pieces, all going back to texture & quality consisting of real fur like mongolian lamb that’s strong wool.

Of course, there’s Rinat Broadach vibe of man versus woman with amazing quality in its great suiting.

And finally, there’s the precious accessories of Sterling King, a brand-new line of costume jewelry, it’s architectural design enables the texture to be the core foundation of the concept.

You also see unforgettable designs like metal glove hard wear, bullet rings, showing off nails capping off the finger, making for a very unique accessory.

The mother concept pieces with Sterling King are the fracture cuff that are very heavy, and a precious metal to hold onto.

Overall, James Murray and his company, Supreme Public Relations believe in the idea of working with rising star designers.

And from looking at these high-end, high quality collections, James has an incredible roster of designers who stand out from the fashion mainstream, and cement their foot print on the landscape.
