Has anyone ever heard of Primary New York? I never have, but I stumbled upon the brand today and thought it was worth a closer look. They are pretty new to the handbag world. Designer Cleo Schroeder is the name behind the brand. She is originally from Vancouver, British Columbia and she began her career in costume design. In 2007, she decided to attend Parsons School of Design in New York. This is where she stayed and launched her first collection under the Primary name in 2011. It isn’t clear whether the first collection included handbags or if those were added later. What is clear is her love for simplicity and high contrast in her designs. That is what caught my eye when I saw the Primary New York Color Block Python Clutch!
This is a very unique looking clutch! I like it because the colors are so vibrant! Coral, magenta, and seafoam are hand painted on pieces of genuine python. These brightly colored pieces were then joined together in a wonderful color block pattern. I love the overall style of this clutch as well. It is what they call a portfolio, but really it is just an oversized envelope clutch. This is great because it brings together two of my favorite kinds of clutches: envelopes and oversized. It is sort like getting a two-for-one, only with trends.
