Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Recently at The Fat Radish in New York, guests gathered for cocktails and a seated dinner with Brett Heyman—the founder and creative director of fashionable handbag brand Edie Parker. Designers, editors, and art and fashion leaders in attendance were there to celebrate the brand’s most recent collection and new objects for home. Edie Parker recently released a first-ever collection with printed photographs (in collaboration with Marilyn Minter for her “Pretty/Dirty” retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum), and opened a new flagship store on Madison Avenue in February, too.
“Each piece is one of a kind. I bought vintage pieces from flea markets around New England, refurbished them and added some element of acrylic. The color and fabrications are unexpected and have the same sense of irreverence found in our bags,” said Heyman of her new home collection, which includes a small selection of handbags.
Thoughtfully placed throughout the space were the new home goods and accessories—attractive in acrylic with careful strips of vibrant colors, and washes of soothing hues. With a funky focus on fashion and contemporary art, the collection features over 60 products, including a smaller four-piece capsule collection that also harnesses refurbished vintage trays and a magazine stand. The debut is in collaboration with 1stdibs and its CEO David Rosenblatt.
The collection is now available on 1stdibs, and in Edie Parker’s Madison Avenue flagship.
