A must-read in The New York Times Style Magazine this weekend? An interview with Ben Gorham, the brains behind the XO Exclusively Ours fragrance collection Byredo and a tour of his Stockholm-based studio. (Since its start seven years ago, Byredo has developed quite the cult following, one that includes both Aubrey Plaza and our very own Fashion Director Tomoko Ogura.)
But the article saves the best news for last: Gorham reveals that he’s creating a women’s bag that will be sold exclusively at Barneys New York this summer. The Times got a chance to look at the prototype and relates to its readers: “Adhering to his ethos of only using the best materials, the bag is made from the most luxurious leather: caviar embossed on the outside and reindeer suede on the inside.” You’ll have to wait a bit longer to get your hands on that, but you can shop Byredo at Barneys.com and read more in The New York Times right now.
