In honor of the legendary pop art icon, Andy Warhol, Treesje will be releasing a new collection consisting to two limited edition styles. But wait, what does Warhol have to do with Treesje? A lot, actually. Warhol was well known for his love for bohemianism and his support of uninhibited art, music, and film that challenged conventional norms regarding gender, sex, and politics. Treesje, on the other hand, has always understood that women are constantly looking to evolve their fashionable look. The California-based company has managed to find the perfect blend between California cool and New York street chic, yet they aren’t afraid to think outside the box and they often draw inspiration from iconic figures and events in art, music, and fashion. Suddenly, their looking to Warhol for inspiration with these limited edition pieces no longer seems like such a far stretch! And did I mention that these styles are infused with a sense of effortlessly chic Bohemia? I think Warhol would definitely approve!
Treesje Warhol – $568
Named after Andy Warhol himself, the Treesje Warhol is the more laid-back of the two styles. Its slouchy silhouette and casual flap give it just the right amount of Bohemian flair. This is balanced with contrasting details such as black leather buckle straps and gold hardware paired with a stone leather body. Also note the interesting use of whip-stitching along the edges! It would make a good, casual-looking bag for everyday use.
Treesje Sedgwick – $365
Named for Warhol’s famous muse, Edie Sedgwick, the Treesje Sedgwick is more structured. Again, stone leather is paired with contrasting black leather trim. However, the bag features silver-tone hardware and edges that are well-defined with piping trim. It is smaller, more like a cross-body bag. It would be perfect for a more refined, yet hands-free look.
The word is that the Treesje Warhol and Sedgwick are scheduled to hit the virtual shelves of Treesje.com on the 24th anniversary of Warhol’s death, February 22nd. Be sure to check them out!
