For those of us who aren’t out to tote designer logos, the brand-less bag can be something special. We of that tribe particularly pay attention to materials, construction, usability and of course design. That design-minded ethos is shared by Berlin-based Gretchen. The four-year old accessories line designed by Anne-Christin Hofmann offers updated patchwork leather hobos that veer more towards modern not retro. There’s also small leather goods too in jewel tones for this Fall/Winter 2010 season. With stockists in Berlin and also in Paris’ storied Galeries Lafayette, we’re keeping our eye trained for an US debut and so should you.
