Designer Spotlight: Kent Stetson

I discovered these amazing clutches on Instagram, and was immediately intrigued with the designer behind the bags. Who is he? What inspired his bold and whimsical designs? How is each bag made? I wanted to know more and see more! Kent Stetson creates stunning, cutting-edge handbags by merging traditional craft techniques with high-technology equipment and materials. After studying at Brown University, Stetson took an interest in new media and hybrid digital/traditional fine art. In 2003, as a framing experiment, he presented one of his digital paintings as a handbag, and has since made bags for collectors all over the world. By blurring the line between art and fashion he wants to in some small way inspire people to live beautifully. Mission accomplished!

I saw the Peacock Clutch (one of my favorites!) up close and it is every bit as fabulous as I expected. I can honestly say that it was hand crafted to perfection. What I love and appreciate most about Kent Stetson’s collection is that each clutch has a personality of its own. They are statement pieces that will always be a conversation starter. All bags come with a removable cross-body chain, logo dust bag, clear vinyl inner pocket, and are individually signed. Price includes shipping. All of my favorite clutches are pictured below.
