Harper's Bazaar editors describe Darby's handbag designs as "unique must haves" and "forever pieces", "unlike anything you've ever seen".
It began as an idea to synthesize, in unique and unforeseen ways, two of women's favorite passions, jewelry and handbags.
The Heritage Tote dates back as one of the earliest designs in the Darby Scott repetoire. First introduced at Bergdorf and Neiman Marcus the bags handles were made in a oval shape set with squares of natural shell inlay. Darby added semi-precious stones and minerals to the range of handle offerings.
The raison d'etre of the Darby Scott collection is to combine subtle artistry with timeless style and ultimately create modern heirlooms.
Darby's designs are rooted in the past through her true dedication to old world craftsmanship, techniques and classic shapes. Yet, her designs go above and beyond an homage to the past. Darby creates something that looks as if has a distinguished provenance but is simultaneously modern.
The collection continues to evolve... originally known for the handbags favored by "ladies who lunch", Darby Scott continues to break new ground. Once synonymous with evening the newer iterations of jeweled bags suitable are for everyday- great with jeans or a moto jacket.
