Deco Style Handbags

“A love song to New York City in a bag”.

This rare and distinctive masterpiece, with its unparalleled design, encompasses the true epitome of classical Art Deco. It is captivating and nostalgic and its creation a monument to a time in which both luxury and modernity where born.

Art Deco, sometimes referred to as Deco, is a style of visual arts, architecture and design that first appeared in France just before World War I. Art Deco was influenced by the bold geometric forms of Cubism and the Vienna Secession; the bright colors of Fauvism and of the Ballets Russes; the updated craftsmanship of the furniture of the eras of Louis Philippe I and Louis XVI; and the exoticized styles of China and Japan, India, Persia, ancient Egypt and Maya art.

New York has one of the finest collections of Art Deco buildings in the world. Some of the city’s most famous landmarks, including The Empire State, the Chrysler, and American Standard buildings, the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, and Rockefeller Center are examples of the highest caliber in the Art Deco Style

Deco 1922

Deco Sunset
"Manhattanenge" Bag

“The sun worshippers delight”
“As a continuation of the DECO collection and her love for New York, Olena explored other possibilities and her ideas gave birth to DECO Sunset. Based on Manhattanhenge  and the Sunset theme, as seen through New York’s towering skyscrapers, this is truly a sun worshiper delight. In parallel, she drew upon her previous connections with England and ancient history of Stonehenge. A prehistoric monument located in Wiltshire, England, which was constructed so that the rising sun, seen from the center of the monument at the time of the summer solstice, aligns with the outer “Heel Stone”.

Manhattanhenge, referred to as the  Manhattan Solstice,  is an event during which the setting sun or the rising sun is aligned with the east–west streets of the main street grid of Manhattan, New York City. The sunsets and sunrises each align twice a year, on dates evenly spaced around the summer solstice and winter solstice”.
