Once upon a time… An amazing designer moved from New York City to Hong Kong’s exotic shores, bringing with her a unique aesthetic and a passion for creating beautiful handbags that would be coveted and revered by stylish A-listers around the globe.
This incredible handbag designer and Hong Kong icon is none other than Fiona Kotur – who creates edgy, fun, fresh designs along with reinterpretations of classic glamour in her gorgeous atelier in Sheung Wan. These dazzling pieces quickly made their way onto the red carpet, gracing the arms of stars like Scarlet Johansson, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Blake Lively and Christy Turlington.
After recently launching the revolutionary #GETSMARTBAG – an eye-catching clutch, which enables you to make calls, send texts and even take photos – without taking your phone out of your bag – plus has room for lipstick, cash and credit cards, and her first ever line of whimsically beautiful embellished shoes last year, the KOTUR brand is expanding even further with its first ever retail store.
In a land not too far away… TST’s SOGO, the gorgeous store is an extension of the KOTUR’s atelier, featuring eclectic furniture and décor inspired by the 1950s and beautiful screens and illustrations designed by Fiona Kotur’s mother, artist Sheila Camera Kotur. The TST store will be home to the brand’s full range including minaudieres, clutches, and shoes, as well as some exclusive accessories.
Coming up for Spring 2015 is a playful collection entitled “Star Spangled Spring” inspired by pop art and 1950’s Americana. Bold, original, and optimistic – with design icons from Andy Warhol to Robert Indiana to Elvis – this is a collection that stays true to KOTUR’s mantra of creating “little bags with big personalities,” and the bags and shoes are sure to become treasured statement pieces for all who own them.
A store-y book ending… and many more exciting chapters to follow!
