Katherine Fleming Goes Fishing

-------

With little fuss, Katherine Fleming has performed the impressive feat of making her bag collection into one of the labels to hoist upon your shoulder.

“It’s got to be a bit mad, doesn’t it?” said Yasmin Sewell, creative consultant for the recently revamped Liberty store. “It is Liberty, after all.” After an extensive renovation aimed at modernizing Liberty and restoring the landmark to its concept shop roots, the store debuted its new look on February 15. “We’ve tightened our edit considerably,” Sewell explained as she led the way through the new Avant-Garde room, which devotes its space to designers such as Margiela, Anne Valérie Hash, Acne, Dries Van Noten, and Rick Owens. The former buying director at Browns, Sewell is also bringing Liberty up-to-date by locking down exclusives with designers such as handbag phenom Katherine Fleming (who will host a trunk show at the store on Wednesday) and jewelry makers Eddie Borgo and Pamela Love. But the Liberty heritage remains front and center: Tamara Salman’s store brand gets pride of place in the accessories department, for example, and the historic sewing floor remains intact. (Sorry, out-of-towners, quilting classes are booked through spring.) “I’m happy to say,” notes Sewell, nodding at the browsers paging through fabric bolts and hunting for thimbles, “that you can still get pretty lost up here.”

After stints at Tory Burch, Polo Ralph Lauren, and Gap, Fleming is striking out on her own this season with a small (only four styles in four colors) but strong handbag collection. Look for them at Barneys and Opening Ceremony beginning next month. Our favorite? Recession or not, we’ve fallen for the python hobo, $3,250, available at Barneys New York, (212) 754-7940.
