Images via Botkier

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.

    I like the pale pink Eden satchel. I’ve never held an Eden satchel before – are they heavy? They look a bit heavy.

    The sea foam green satchel in the second pic is beautiful! But the model looks as if she is bored posing…..maybe Botkier should have just shown the gorgeous bags without a half asleep model lounging in the background.

    Beautiful bags, the ads are not that impressive.

    I especially love the simplicity of the ads and how the beautiful collection is set off by the fabulous colors in the fabrics chosen. Huge Botkier Fan, here :)
