Brody Neuenschwander and Dominique Vieren have collaborated to make a series of purses like no other. Dominique, one of Belgium’s most prestigious artists in leather, made twelve stunning purses entirely by hand. And Brody covered them with his most expressive, passionate calligraphy. Brody composed a text that, for once, allows a handbag to speak to her loving owner:
“You hold me, I hold you. All your hopes, dreams and fears are archived in the pockets of my heart. I have entrusted to you my secret desires. Take me with you. Never leave me behind. I need to know you are there, protecting my treasures. Centuries from now, when archeologists dig through my settled layers, they will find, in the depths, a bundle of love letters, and they will know we loved each other.”
When the twelve purses are placed in a row, the entire text can be read. In other words, the series constitutes ONE work of art – and you can be the owner of a part of it! Brody and Dominique always imagined that the twelve owners could someday come together from the four corners of the globe, line up their purses for a reunion photo and tell each other where the purses have been over the years.
These are high ticket items, to be sure. We have looked at Delvaux. We have compared to Vuitton. And ours are better. Truly! Each is unique but also part of a larger whole. These artworks for your arm are hard-wearing and made to last a lifetime.
Each purse comes with a signed certificate and brochure showing all twelve purses and giving the complete text.
