Ladies, here’s your fun fact for the day: Before Monica Botkier started her awesome handbag line, she was a professional photographer. It only makes sense, then, that Monica would step back behind the lens to shoot a campaign for her bags from her own photographic perspective, but somehow, Botkier Spring 2012 is the first time that she’s done it.
The results are a set of simple, clean images that represent the bags well. Botkier seems to be stepping a little further into the realm of color than it has in previous seasons, and the pastels and brights in these photos fit with the season’s trends particularly well. Personally, my pick of the litter so far is the bright green tote with blue accents. Check out the rest of the ads (and bags!) after the jump. (more…)
