For a little while now, we’ve been in discussions with the creators of a new soap opera called Relationships, about providing the clutches for the show’s costumes. Since this is a Canadian show they have tried to stick to Canadian designers, Davie&Chiyo included. One of the other designers that they are featuring is Malene Grotrian, an accomplished womens’ wear designer who made her New York Fashion Week debut in 2009.

The fashion industry is always seasons ahead, so Malene had been preparing for her Fall/Holiday 2010 show and was in need of accessories. That’s where Davie&Chiyo came in.

Since our clutches being completely customizable, we were approached to do a collaboration – combining Davie&Chiyo designs with the fabrics from Malene’s collection. The result was AMAZING – shadowy greys contrasted with fuschia, cobalt and mustard. Definitely must-haves for fall!
