NEW YORK — What is an anonymous accessory? Good question — but if you ask accessories designer Iris Schutte, she’ll have an answer. After 10 years of working for other clothing and accessories companies, Schutte decided to try her hand at her own line of accessories, called Anonyme. With the “comeback of accessories,” she felt this was a good time to make a move. Anonyme premiered at D.P. Accessories in November and is targeting a younger, contemporary customer who, according to Schutte, is “very visual.”
Although the line currently consists only of bags, for fall she is planning to add scarves and jewelry. “My accessories are an interpretation of the clothes that are out there — I want total coordination — but at the same time, the accessory should stand out.” The bags are made out of patent vinyl, with wholesale prices ranging from $36 to $44. So far, Plaza 2 in Connecticut and Holt Renfrew in Canada have purchased the line.
