Study in Luxe Construction: Christopher Kon Handbags


Clockwise from left: Ellena Tote, Jordie Hobo, Jordie Tote, Kipton Tote.

There is something unique about Christopher Kon’s deceptively simple handbags. The Montreal native builds his designs out of luxurious leathers that only get better with age, and he approaches their design with an innovative ease. Take the fall 2012 collection as example: basket-weave leather and bold colorways are built into utilitarian silhouettes that manage to feel simultaneously classic and new. The designer’s inspiration comes from his own life’s pleasures—surfing, traveling, painting, music—and this unpretentious simplicity flows through each piece in his gorgeous collection.
