Hendrick’s Gin has collaborated with two Australian demi-couture designers Nicol & Ford to launch the cucumber bag collection.
The collection features three variants – Picnic Sip Pack, Couturier’s Cucumber Clutch and Titillating Tuft Tote – were all part of the display of the Hendrick’s Gin Parlour at last week’s Australian Afterpay Fashion Week.
The three cucumber-inspired handbags debuted at the show La Pouffe.
“For Hendrick’s, the unusual and the luxurious are mutually intertwined, choosing to see the extraordinary as the every day,” said Nicol & Ford.
“La Pouffe’ brings the unusual to the forefront to celebrate decadence with a difference.”
The Picnic Sip Pack contains two colours – royal French navy and cream – and can be purchased with an RRP of $250. According to the company, the sales will be donated to the Australian Design Centre to support Australian talents.
Couturier’s Cucumber Clutch is presented in the form of an oversized satin and diamante-embellished clutch, as well as is inspired by the tradition of Fabergé Eggs and ornamental jewel casket.
Meanwhile, Titillating Tuft Tote is a renaissance-style tufted tote bag taking inspiration from Hendrick’s diamond logo and reimagined with a Persian carpet-inspired floral border and Hendrick’s signature cucumber rounds.
“The collaboration has seen us interpret cucumbers and the elaborate world of Hendrick’s into inspired accessories across the collection,” the designers added.
“Each unique design celebrates the playful presence of sophisticated cocktails served in the decadent parties held in the Parisian penthouse apartment of Carlos de Beistegui from which ‘La Pouffe’ takes inspiration.”
