In 2003, while working as a fashion photographer, Monica Botkier was on the brink of becoming the internationally recognized accessories designer she is today. Using her developed photographer’s eye for detail and artistry, Botkier created a new niche in the fashion industry. Inspired by her urban chic and busy downtown Manhattan lifestyle, Monica designed her first handbag collection that resulted in immediate cult status.
Botkier has created a niche in the market where there was a void, an approachable designer brand. Our accessories embody luxury through custom detailing, innovation and quality while focusing on functionality. Reality for the modern woman. Important too is the price, sitting just under the high-end designers labels. Botkier is at a unique vantage point and position in the market. An independent brand that marries luxury with utility.
In terms of aesthetics, Botkier has a downtown edge, a certain seduction factor. There is something very exciting about hardware and leather; this synergy creates a direct and easy way to express oneself. You can take risks wearing Botkier accessory and push the envelope daily.
