(NEW YORK) The Francophiles who’ve been following Benoit Jamin and Isabelle Puech’s charming handbag line Jamin Puech since the company opened its new Nolita flagship last spring have something new to look forward to--the Jamin Puech jewelry collection will soon launch at the store, located at 14 Prince Street. “We incorporated our lifestyle into a versatile collection of jewelry that best highlights the Jamin Puech handbag line, said Puech, who looked to Malian photographer Malik Sidibe’s black and white photographs for the African-inspired collection. “We wanted to create an accessories collection that is unique, yet classic.” The collection will mirror the playful designs and bright colors of the Jamin Puech handbags (some pieces will incorporate elements like flowers and birds), using materials from resin and wood to cotton and mirrors.
