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.”

On his favorite combination he has designed Peter said,

“My personal favorites have to be the spider and fly, which is fun because you can play around with the placement and they have a little bit of movement when you carry the bag. Also the Victorian moonstone moth which is simply an amazing piece of antique jewelry. I have a nice little collection of brooches waiting to be used on the right bag and some of my very favorite jewelry pieces are still in there”.

I love a well-crafted exotic bag for a dressed up look. These clutches not only fit the bill, but also clearly show high quality skins being used. On top of that, the added ribbon and jewelry detail is the perfect touch to help these bags stand apart from others. I am sold!
