Kristina Thaden talks about her rare handbags https://michaelkorsoutleteinc.com/kristina-thaden-talks-about-her-rare-handbags/ Fri, 09 Sep 2022 16:17:50 +0000 https://michaelkorsoutleteinc.com/kristina-thaden-talks-about-her-rare-handbags/ Kristina Thaden, the founder of Thaden.

If you manage to find a factory in Italy to manufacture your leather goods, that’s a feat in itself, especially a factory that isn’t taken over by the big fashion conglomerates. And finding a factory that matches your philosophy and vision is a bigger feat, although difficult, it is doable. However, finding one ready to craft the rarest bags is nearly downright impossible. But, Kristina Thaden rose to the challenge with her brand of luxury bags Thadenwhich is shown during New York Fashion Week which started today and ends on September 14th.

Conceived late last year, Thaden took the handbag world by storm, turning heads with her pleated yet sculpted bag, and other bags. Swiss of ethnic origin, if one product, Thaden, can be said to be produced in neighboring Italy. Just about everything that comes out of Switzerland is made with the highest of excellence, and Thaden is no different. It is made with Italian precision, but with the tradition of Swiss luxury.

All handbags

The big one and The whole medium are the two bags that have baffled seasoned Italian makers. “The complexity of the designer’s vision requires the execution of precise curves and geometric folds in the finest leather, and it seemed technically unattainable,” the house notes. But then came Luigi, a craftsman eager to scale up and manufacture Kristina’s vision to the world.

“Luigi, who is now 89, is one of the greatest masters of his craft. He was the first and only one who had the confidence to develop it. We talked a lot, because it’s always very strong when we don’t agree. But the wonderful cliché is that we love each other very much and that at lunch we always eat together at the big table”, says Kristina.

She is involved in every step of the production process, wanting to know everything about the implementation along the way. “In the conversations about making the Whole Bag, I gained a good technical understanding,” she says.

“The Whole handbag is inspired by my obsession with all kinds of shapes and the Japanese philosophy of ‘Ma’ – the space between things. Excitement is what happens there, where nothing happens. So much can come out of it. Even as a director, I found it so exciting to explore what happens next to the representation, in the empty space. If you pay attention to the space between things, to what is missing, to what is not said, to what is formless, you experience the unexpected, and this is as important as the work of art itself. From this void is born dynamism, a space fills up,” she muses. “I want to capture that dynamic, as if I’m freezing an interaction and capturing it in a wearable sculpture. The Whole offers so much – filling the space between things, with yourself , with your own character, your own personality, with an incredible aura.

Constantly looking for inspiration, Kristina emphasizes that what she sees in one thing, someone else will see something different and create something different – and that’s what happened with the creation of the Whole handbags. “I believe in keeping children’s curiosity alive in this regard. For example, a photo of a freeway interchange in Los Angeles recently inspired me to make a blouse. It could also have become a sculpture. Authentic inspiration expands, it is fluid.

How Thaden was born

Creativity has always been in Kristina’s soul. Having acted, sung and led her own theater troupe, she has always felt the need to express herself. My life journey combines art and business in a beautiful and effective way. Already at the age of 6 it was clear to me that I needed to express my creativity and that I belonged on stage. I started writing plays in elementary school, and growing up I played lead roles, wrote poems, and performed ballet. When I was 14, I got the lead role in a radio sitcom in Germany. Later, I completed a musical training, studying theater, directing and oral expression, to then found and lead with great joy my own theater ensemble.

And then, before starting Thaden, Kristina was the general manager of a Swiss construction company. But she had already demonstrated skills in the business world before that: “To finance my temporarily unprofitable passion, I took a job in a market research company, I became a team leader and I also offered training to business leaders who wanted to improve and optimize their performance. . This eventually led me down the business path. I trained in project management and deepened my studies in organizational development, coaching and HR.

“During my corporate career, I have trained and coached C-level female executives for many years and have always encouraged their leadership in my teams – female empowerment has always been close to my heart. heart and Thaden is a tribute to the wonderful woman. In my last position, I was appointed deputy general manager in a medium-sized construction company in Switzerland. During this time, I also worked continuously on my ideas for design and gave space to other projects like writing a novel, classical singing, photography. I found myself yearning for more creativity, more expression in my life, and I knew at that time that I had strong management skills and that I had learned a lot over the past few years, so the time had come and the idea of ​​combining creativity and management took hold more and more. clearly. The pandemic gave me the impetus to launch the pr Thaden object. And so, I started this wonderful journey.

Launch

Not stalling to begin with, Kristina found the decision to pitch exhilarating. “I’m basically a pretty anxious person, I don’t like riding roller coasters, I don’t like skydiving, a lot of things scare me. But when it comes to my ideas, which I have carefully considered and calculated, I don’t hesitate for long. Also, my creative personality helps me. I’m good at finding solutions. But it can be an advantage (at least for the mental attitude) that we cannot predict the challenges, call it useful founder naivety. Otherwise, we would never start at all because so many things are going differently than expected.

Not every day is the same, but her days oscillate between creative days and business days, which she calls “an entrepreneur’s rodeo.” “I have a schedule for each activity. First I check my email, all social media channels, read the news, then I look at my long to-do list that I prioritized the day before, many phone calls, many trips to Italy for production. Due to my background in the arts and the less managed approach there, I created a solid structure in my later professional life that can withstand great stress. And when it gets too hard and I don’t know what to do, I get up and dance across the room or go for a walk. I have to consciously take time off because as an entrepreneur you have to be prepared to run a marathon, not a sprint.

Her creative days led her to disconnect from the online connection and connect to creation where Kristina draws, walks, gazes into what she calls ‘nothingness’, letting ideas flow while building them their own “palace”. But the truth is that Kristina wears many hats at the same time, as so many small businesses do. “Everything is demanded of me at the same time,” she says. But finding the commercial and creative balance is above all knowing how to manage, and for her, it’s both positive and a challenge for her.

One challenge she has found as a founder in relation to management is staying clear about her goals. “For example, with the providers I have chosen for my label, it is crucial to make the right financial decisions. Women often have inhibitions to stand up for what they want. I’m not afraid to say that as the founder of my own brand, I made mistakes and lost money because I chose to ignore those signals that intuitively indicated that something was wrong. was not going. Running your own business is something different than being a manager in a corporate setting. It’s just me and my first-hand decisions, and from that perspective, it takes a lot of growth in a short time.

Women identify

If you look at Thaden’s bags, they have a unique shape and appeal to women. They are also intricate, intricately shaped bags that, as Kristina notes, “they connect with every woman’s inner heroine.” There is something in silhouettes that makes a woman feel, I know you and understand you, I have to carry you. “He speaks to the hearts of women and celebrates them – in all their personality, in all that they are,” Kristina continues. “A Thaden wants to take you where you are and not make you something you’re not. If you ever feel invincible, great, grab your Thaden bag and set off some fireworks. If you feel insecure, let your Thaden show what a great personality you are.

Another Thaden bag is The Little Rocket, which can also be made in Ostrich or Calfskin, with Lamb Nappa for the interior. With the circular shape of the bag, the bottom attracts attention with its round arch. The handle is very circular, which gives it an elegant and luxurious look.

“5 years ago I was traveling with my husband and one evening we were sitting in a bar on a hill in Palm Springs. The half moon shone big and bright. It was then that the idea of ​​the shape of a reclining moon first came to me and also the idea of ​​creating very specific bags, which I told my husband about. Luckily, my husband is very supportive of me and my ideas, and he encouraged the ideas. The bag mainly comes from my obsession with perfect shapes. I always ask myself, ‘what does a shape want to be?’ I just have to listen, look, feel, then it almost takes shape on its own. For me, the Little Rocket is synonymous with femininity, feminine lines, softness. It is the small energy rocket and a decorative adornment on the wrist. My bags always have many points of reference, many levels of meaning and a Thaden should always be a wonderful support for the personality of the wearer.

Kristina’s goal for the brand is simple. Make Thaden accessible to more people. As the brand begins to take off and really grab people’s attention, its goal is to grow it into a lifestyle brand that moves away from fast fashion towards timeless investment pieces that uplift the environment. . “It must embody uncompromising quality, craftsmanship, artistic touch and style in all areas. I want Thaden to contribute, away from fast consumption, according to the motto: buy quality, buy little and pass it on to your children. With Thaden, whether it’s a handbag, clothes, interior, you should be able to wrap yourself up, feel safe and strong and above all be seen and respected in your personality,” she says.

On the go during this ready-to-wear fashion week season, Kristina can be seen at the Juju showroom during New York Fashion Week, where those interested can view Whole’s signature handbags. She will also be at Paris Fashion Week, exhibiting in a gallery in the Marais district in the 4th arrondissement.

Fashion’s Most Outrageous Handbags of 2022 https://michaelkorsoutleteinc.com/fashions-most-outrageous-handbags-of-2022/ Mon, 05 Sep 2022 09:18:59 +0000 https://michaelkorsoutleteinc.com/fashions-most-outrageous-handbags-of-2022/ Moving away from minimalism, fashion has recently seen a slew of maximalist and surreal designs, especially in handbags.

Moving away from minimalism, fashion has recently seen a slew of maximalist and surreal designs, especially in handbags. With the recent launch of Balenciaga’s trash bag-shaped handbag and JW Anderson’s 3D printed dove clutch, we’ve rounded up some of the most outrageous styles spotted recently. Our list includes Louis Vuitton’s Paint Can bag available in six colorways and Thom Browne’s lobster-shaped backpack, as well as pieces from up-and-coming brands such as Solitude Studios and Grace Ling.

Keep scrolling to see some of fashion’s most outrageous bags this season.

THE PRICE: $1,790
EVALUATION: 4/10

Although it may look like a trash bag, this handbag from Balenciaga is made of calfskin (hence its high price tag). Arriving in black, blue, yellow and white, the design – first unveiled at Demna’s apocalyptic Fall/Winter 2022 runway – is completed with subtle branding to the front. It’s no surprise for a brand like Balenciaga to release a trash bag-like design for nearly US$2,000 – a pink tote bag fetched US$1,490 in 2019. With the bag’s recent release trash, there’s no doubt the style will be spotted on Instagram and it’s already been dubbed “a success.” But realistically, would you invest US$1,790 in something that could be mistaken for an actual plastic trash bag?

THE PRICE: $890
EVALUATION: 7/10

This bag from Grace Ling is probably one of the most practical models on this list. The shoulder bag has two zippered openings on each side, making it (a little) easier to find your wallet or phone inside. Cheerful ends add a touch of high fashion to an otherwise roomy everyday bag.

THE PRICE: $890
EVALUATION: 3/10

This pigeon-shaped clutch was first revealed on JW Anderson’s FW22 show alongside other surreal designs such as dresses with underwired hemlines and cropped tops made up of a bunch of attached rubber straps each other. The 3D printed bag has a side opening under the pigeon’s wing and is branded with JW Anderson on the inside. While this handbag is obviously not made for carrying your essentials, it’s definitely a showpiece that will get you snapping photos during Fashion Week.

THE PRICE: $2,360
EVALUATION: 6/10

This bag by Virgil Abloh looks like a can of paint with the Louis Vuitton monogram printed all over. Offered in a variety of colors – purple, yellow, green, orange, red and blue – the shoulder bag first debuted on Louis Vuitton’s FW22 menswear show, which was a celebration of the late designer. As explained in the product description, the paint bucket is “roomy enough to hold two phones and other personal items.” Definitely more practical than the pigeon clutch, this bag adds a playful touch to any look.

THE PRICE: £335 GBP (about US$390) for the Essence Waxed Skin Bag£890 GBP (approximately US$1,036) for the seaweed bag
EVALUATION: 8/10

Copenhagen-based Solitude Studios creates knitwear, handbags and more from local materials. The brand’s made-to-order Essence Oilskin Bag and Seaweed Bag use leftover yarns that are purchased from textile production companies. The first is water-repellent and features a silver buckle created in collaboration with the artist ZWYRTECHwhile the latter is the perfect surreal piece to add to your rotation.

THE PRICE: $3,290
EVALUATION: 7/10

Lobster-shaped backpacks, anyone? Thom Browne’s $3,290 bag is crafted from top-grain leather and arrives in all black in the shape of a crustacean. Lined with Thom Browne style blue-red stripes, the design features adjustable backpack straps. This editor rates this bag 7 out of 10 for its fun shape and design while still being a bit practical.

Whether on the catwalk, in the fashion media or on the street, men’s bags are on the rise. While briefcases and backpacks have never really fallen out of favor, recent years have seen styles of accessories usually reserved for women being co-opted by men. From top-handle handbags to mini shoulder bags, it seems no silhouette is out of bounds.

NPD Group Market Research Company revealed that in the United States, sales of men’s and unisex handbags had increased by 700% in 2021 compared to 2018. Highsnobiety predicts this change in 2019, while vogue recently reported that handbag sales give the sneaker bang for the buck in the resale market. But why this sudden interest?

The increase in gender fluidity has certainly played a role, as menswear has embraced traditionally feminine items, including skirts, heels and nail polish. For eons, women have carried their belongings in bags of all shapes and sizes, and now men are allowed to enjoy such convenience. Plus, bags can instantly elevate a cut.

It’s not just about freedom of expression. Handbags are the backbone of revenue for luxury fashion houses. In 2018, Sanford C. Bernstein, an investment research firm, reported that handbags accounted for around 40% of a luxury brand’s annual profits.

To understand how we got here is to know the history of men’s bag trends. And as the story goes, bags have always been a man’s game.

From Antiquity to the Renaissance

Bags have been an integral part of the development of human civilization as they have helped people gather loose items for easy transport. This is believed that hunter-gatherers may have used proto-bags made of animal skins and plant fibers, yet it was in the Middle Ages that they became an accessory of the day. The word itself dates back to around 1200 CE to the Norse sacgimeaning “bundle” or “bundle”.

In the past, the belt pouch was the “It” bag of the day. First adopted by men and later by women, the small leather pouch hung from a belt or belt around the waist and was used to store valuables. But the advent of the pocket at the end of the Middle Ages made the humble pocket-belt obsolete.

The Renaissance brought more trends, including Elizabethan shoulder bags, which were inspired by the basic design of the belt pouch. Worn by the aristocracy, the elaborately embroidered bags were filled with fragrant items such as herbs and dried flowers to ward off foul odors at a time when personal hygiene was lacking. As with today’s it-bags, sweat bags were a sign of status and wealth.

Another notable invention of this era was the humble satchel, but it was mostly carried by schoolchildren. Bags began to divide along gender lines during the Renaissance – women’s designs boomed while men’s bags entered a period of calm.

Post-industrial innovation

The Industrial Revolution led to the boom in passenger rail transport in the first half of the 19th century and led to a demand for strong bags. Thus, the modern briefcase was born in the 1850s.

Simultaneously, there was a need for light luggage as the trunks of yore – which required the assistance of a porter – were cumbersome. The carpet bag, immortalized on screen in Mary Poppins, was mass-created as inexpensive personal luggage that was light enough for passengers to carry on their own. Originally made from rugs, rug bags later served as inspiration for the design of modern totes.

The wartime period of the late 19th and early 20th centuries was also a boon for innovation. In 1878, US Army Colonel Henry Merriam received the patent for his so-called backpack. Although people have carried goods on their backs for millennia, Merriam designed the prototype of the modern backpack. Its design was cumbersome and eventually abandoned, but over the next half-century a series of constructions by several inventors eventually led to the backpack we know today.

The World Wars also gave us German bread bags, which featured straps attached to the belts, making them an early version of today’s beloved belt bag. Although these military styles were not trends when they were created, they became so after influencing later civilian fashion.

Men’s Fashion Tieback Bags

By the turn of the 20th century, most of the bag styles we know and use today had already been invented. But innovation returned in the 1980s, with the popularization of sports and wellness leading to an increase in fitness bags made from synthetic materials like nylon. Fanny packs – originally designed in the mid-century for hikers and downhill skiers (and very reminiscent of the earlier belt pouch) – proliferated and enabled hands-free styling. Advertising week even named him the best product of 1988. Duffel bags also rose to prominence over the decade as an update on the tote.

As fashion dictates, the 1990s saw the pendulum swing the other way. The style was so understated that bags as fashion accessories for men became virtually non-existent. This is when public opinion on men’s bags regressed to the era of the commendable “murse”. Thanks to a few prime-time storylines that saw an entire episode of Friends dedicated to ridiculing Joey’s new bag, while Jerry Seinfeld adopted a “European tote” on Seinfeldmen’s bags were as good as dead and buried.

Despite fears that men’s bags will persist into the 2009s The hangover made a punchline of the shoulder bag – men’s bag trends have finally made a comeback, albeit in a low key way. Alternative boys of the time eschewed backpacks for the nonchalant coolness of messenger bags – invented 150 years earlier for postal workers and yet another variant of the satchel – with pins from their favorite bands. Meanwhile, indie sleaze hipsters preferred roomy tote bags that communicated vague environmental concerns, while still managing to fit a six-pack of PBR. A win-win.

Streetwear reigns supreme

The rise of streetwear into luxury fashion in the 2010s completely upended the industry as we knew it. Where haute couture once dictated top-to-bottom trends, the script was reversed and big trends began to form first on the streets.

At the start of the decade, as menswear leaned into activewear, the backpack took center stage. In all honesty, backpacks never really went anywhere, but they were finally spending their day in the sun, or rather on the catwalks.

The sports theme continued with belt bags – or the second coming of the fanny pack – into the second half of the decade. Their ubiquity in high fashion – as well as equally sporty side panniers – speaks to the shift in power that defined the era. Nowhere was this better exemplified than in Louis Vuitton’s seminal collaboration with Supreme for Fall/Winter 2017. This merging of worlds paved the way for the expansion of masculine style codes we see today. .

Disruptive men’s fashion

It seems like anything goes these days, but the adoption of traditionally feminine bag styles in menswear is especially timely, as evidenced by Kim Jones’ reinvention of the Saddle bag at Dior and Hermès’ introduction of the Rock , the first Birkin for men. Meanwhile, brands like Telfar and Luar have popularized genderless mini bags, while male celebrities are increasingly donning handbags.

The huge increase in sales of men’s bags confirms that this is more than a passing micro-trend, as the boundaries of menswear continue to be pushed. And with bags fetching as much, if not more, than shoes or other items on the resale market, the commercial gains are sure to keep them in the spotlight. The history of men’s bags may be long, but it’s not as developed as women’s bags, so it’s high time for men to catch up.

Gaga skipped last night’s MTV Video Music Awards for other major projects.

Lady Gaga posted a reel on Instagram Sunday wearing an oxygen tank as a “handbag” during her last stop in Hershey, Pennsylvania, as part of The Chromatica Ball summer stadium tour.

“Tonight was the highest-grossing show at HERSHEYPARK STADIUM IN HISTORY since The Rolling Stones in 2005,” Gaga said in the caption.

The Grammy Award-winning entertainer wore a statement leather jacket over a black bodysuit. His biker garment featured ornate shoulder lapels and chrome hardware throughout, especially exposed zippers to give a bolder look.

The “Rain On Me” singer wore the tops with black fishnet tights and leather thigh-high boots that surprisingly lacked any sort of leverage. Gaga was known for saying she’d rather die than her fans not see her in a pair of high heels. The singer has also opened up in recent years about her diagnosis of fibromyalgia, a chronic condition that intermittently causes widespread musculoskeletal pain, which could be another reason she opted for some comfort on tour.

The “House of Gucci” star completed the look with some unique accessories. To her right, Gaga wore a glove that transformed her hand into a “Stranger Things” Vecna-like claw. His fingers had long, sharp, curved black horn-like nails on each finger. In her left hand, Gaga held a portable oxygen cylinder that she described as her “favorite purse” in the text of the video to the intro music for ROSALÍA’s song “BIZCOCHITO.” She wore a mask attached to the tank as she strolled backstage. Supplemental oxygen can help musicians relax and perform at their best.

Gaga’s tour is set to end soon on September 17 in Miami.

Chris Moore changes the color of a handbag while his father Donald Moore works in the background at their new boutique, Artbag, in Coral Springs, Florida. The 90-year-old company restores high-end women’s handbags, such as Hermès and Chanel, and has just moved from Manhattan to take advantage of lower costs and a better business and […]]]>

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. — The headline in The New York Times sounded like a plaintive plea: “Who will fix his Birkins now?

The answer: It’s still Artbag, Manhattan’s venerable haute couture women’s handbag restorer since the early 1930s. But as of last week, Donald and Chris Moore’s father-son team are now plying their trade. highly qualified in Coral Springs, the new home of their company.

The 90-year-old institution has become the latest of the New York-area businesses to relocate to South Florida. But the company is an anomaly in the conga line of COVID-era companies that have migrated south in large numbers since 2020. Most are financial and tech companies with a sprinkling of restaurants.

The Moores are small business owners who are lifelong craftsmen with a client list that spans generations of affluent women, including celebrities such as Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor, Diane Sawyer and Cicely Tyson.

Coral Springs has no data reflecting the relocation of businesses from New York to the city of West Broward, said Kristi J. Bartlett, director of economic development. But she said: ‘It happens quite often because of our favorable tax climate and low cost of doing business compared to the North East.

Chris Moore, who now runs the business and operates it with his wife, Estelle, started working with his father when he was 6 years old.

Although the business was unique, the reasons for the move were not that the rent and other costs of doing business had reached intolerable levels.

Donald Moore, now 80, said he was happy with the move despite spending his entire career in New York.

“I think it was a very good decision,” he said. “No. 1, customers know us. We do a lot of mail order. That’s a big difference. It’s not what you do. It’s what you can save. In New York, you don’t can save anything.

Chris Moore said the company was saving $26,000 a month on rent by moving to South Florida. Keeping a close eye on costs, he avoided the higher-rent enclaves of Worth Avenue in Palm Beach and Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale when scouting.

“If I had to do that, it wouldn’t have been cost-effective for the store and the family,” he said. “There’s a certain freedom in not having to worry about paying that kind of rent every first of the month.”

Moore says he moved to Coral Springs for its suburban surroundings and its location midway between Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties. In addition, the rent is much lower than in the city centers of large cities.

“Coral Springs, Weston, Parkland, those three places, we felt the same,” Moore said. “But Coral Springs, when we crossed, was more like home than the other two.”

The move included moving leather and equipment including sewing machines, a drill press, rotary tools for carving, cutting, engraving, sharpening and cleaning, and a trimming machine that cuts or shaves the edges of the strips of material.

Three veteran Artbag artisans have chosen to stay in New York and are available for projects. Smaller jobs are handled in Coral Springs.

“When Florida customers found out we were coming here, they were thrilled,” Moore said.

Generations of customers

Since the early 1930s, women have trusted Artbag craftsmen to refurbish their high-end bags – many by Hermès, Chanel, Cartier and Louis Vuitton – for restoration and rehabilitation.

The company was founded in 1932 by Hillel Tenenbaum, a former professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology, according to the company’s website.

Louis Rosenberg, son-in-law and business partner, was a tinsmith “who brought his knowledge of metals and the art of quality to Artbag” and was considered the “king of quality control”.

Donald Moore was a protege of Tenenbaum and purchased the business in 1993. A native of Elizabeth City, North Carolina, he began his career in the boutique in 1959. working alongside Tenenbaum for more than 20 years, learning model making and the construction of handbags.

Chris Moore started making bags at a young age, drawing on his father’s expertise. His father persuaded him to come aboard full time after graduating from Pace University in New York.

These days, Chris runs the business with the help of his wife while his father works on newly arrived jobs as the Coral Springs operation ramps up.

When asked if he would work full time, Donald Moore replied: “Absolutely not! I’m doing him a favor right now.
