Kicking off Fashion Week a few days early on Tuesday February 7, renowned accessories brand, Etienne Aigner presented their debut Fall/Winter 2012 handbag and jewelry collections at The Morgan Library.
After going dark for six-months, the classic brand will return this coming fall under new ownership with a reinvigorated brand look and a stunning, modern collection of handbags and jewelry taking inspired touches from its heritage.
The South Parlor of the prestigious Morgan Library proved to be the perfect venue to showcase the collection. Guests were served
cocktails and appetizers as they viewed the pieces on display and listened to the smooth sounds of DJ Natasha Nova.
The presentation marked just the beginning of a major overhaul of the 60 year-old brand. Under the direction of Piotti and a new design team, Etienne Aigner has plans to expand the brand beyond women’s accessories, into men’s accessories and women’s ready-to-wear in the coming year, as well as open a standalone flagship store in New York City.
