Here at A.K. Rikk's we are always striving to be the first to discover new trends and upcoming designers. After a great week in New York with the women's buying team we are excited to bring you a new women's accessories label specializing in handbags and small leather goods, Danse Lente. With it's contemporary price point and luxury feel, it is the bag for every women this season. Danse Lente, meaning "slow dance" in French, brings you quality leather goods inspired by modern architecture and contemporary aesthetics. "Each piece is conceived in depth in order to create a purpose built product that will also create a unique experience to its predecessor. There is a playful and curious element to each design that appeals to a wide range of audiences." This London based brand exclusively launched with Net-a-Porter and sold out within 72 hours. The four styles arriving at A.K. Rikk's this November are the Phoebe, Lorna, Johnny and Young bags. Danse Lante describes each bag in detail: "The Phoebe is a structural bag with two compartments. Handle fastenings are inspired by the spiral binding of a notebook; the oversized spiral is the key element of this style and evokes more of a feminine touch to the collection."
"The Lorna is an oversized "bucket bag" with a sculptural outer shape and leather lining, complete with an internal pouch to keep little treasures safe. Key features include a punctuated keyhole fastening, indicative of Danse Lente's signature design detailing. This un-conventional fastening has been crafted to allow the wearer to interchange the bag's iconic keyhole strap with different color options, adjustable into three different lengths giving versatility to the style, allowing the wearer to update their bag season on season."
"The Johnny is an eye-catching structural piece, inspired by Constantin Brâncusi abstract sculptures. A focal point of the 'Johnny' style is an exaggerated D-ring in the center of the hexagonal shape, representing the strong influence of modernist art. A geometric silhouette with a cool, origami-style opening the Johnny has a polished silver hardware and a contrasting cream top handle."
"The Young combines elegance, modernity and sophistication with a minimal clean cut. Key features include a punctuated keyhole shaped fastening, indicative of Danse Lente's signature design detailing. This un-conventional fastening has been bragged to allow the wearer to interchange the bag's iconic keyhole strap with different color options, adjustable into three different lengths giving versatility to the style, allowing the wearer to update their bag season on season."
