After five years of running PurseBlog, it is rare that I run into a brand new designer that I feel absolutely amazed, excited, and captivated by. That is precisely what I feel when I look at Peter Nitz Zurich designs. His designs captured my attention from the very first glance and have yet to let me go. Peter’s dream was to own an atelier where he would shape and stitch the finest available skins entirely by hand and accent them with beautiful jewelry to create unique and precious handbags. And this dream has come true in his namesake company. Most of the designs from the masterpieces collection are custom made to order. The prices vary depending on the combination of the type and size of the skins used along with which piece of jewelry is used.
On using brooches in his designs Peter told me,
“I am a collector and lover of all things vintage and antique. I was always drawn to these amazing antique brooches that just do not get the attention they deserve because brooches are not really that fashionable these days. Bags on the other hand are! So I thought it would be a great way to bring these incredible pieces of jewelry back to life again.”
