671 takes a bow
If the debut collection of leather-bow clutch bags from the recently launched 671 label don’t ignite intrigue, then the mystery behind the brand’s rotating design collective should do the job. “Each season, a designer with a personal or professional connection to the Des Kohan store sends in patterns and fabric swatches, and a production team from this end executes the product,” explains a mouthpiece for brand, which incidentally takes its name from the street address of Kohan’s Los Angeles boutique (the only retailer to stock the limited-edition line). Curious yet? The plot thickens: The collection is in fact the brainchild of a European expat currently living in America, and next season’s capsule collection of cocktail dresses, evening dresses, and belts will be masterminded by a knitwear designer currently residing in Rome.
