Jamin Puech Handbags
by Denise Grayson


Discovering an exciting new line of handbags is a fun and fortuitous find, and the latest to have me imagining them with all kinds of outfits is Jamin Puech. The Parisian company may be well-established at 20 years old; however, their fresh and innovative handbag collections indicate they are as passionate about their craft as ever – they produce over 100 new styles a year.

Designers Isabelle Puech and Benoit Jamin met while working at a prestigious fashion house and launched their company in 1990. Within two years their bags were carried by Bergdorf Goodman in New York and Corso Como in Milan and they went on to accessorize the runway collections of Chloe, Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld and Balmain.

Quality handwork and a richness of eclectic references mark their signature style. Their unique way of mixing modern and traditional materials with patterns, textures and colour, embroidery and embellishments are particularly intriguing; these are the kinds of bags that make you want to take a long second look to see exactly what’s going on - in a good way, it’s never too much. They do colour very well and offer a range of colour combinations for each style; however, I’m partial to their nude palettes which are anything but quiet and bland; darker tones complement the lightness to add depth while keeping the lovely creaminess.

You can buy Jamin Puech handbags through their e-boutique.

They're more like abstract works of arts than bags.

Is this statement accessorising?
