Find Ennigaldi's Debut Collection at Milk Concept Boutique, Shoreditch
Ennigaldi’s debut handbag collection for AW16 is now available at Milk Concept Boutique in Shoreditch, the heart of East London’s creative sphere.
Offering a carefully curated selection from both internationally recognised designers and emerging talents, Milk Concept boutique is a treasure trove for any design enthusiast in search of exquisite objects for the home by leading names such as Fornasetti and Glas Italia.
The boutique offers more of an art gallery experience of discovery than that of a store and given Ennigaldi's strong design ethos and connection with art, it is the perfect physical space to present pieces from our first collection for AW16. Everything we do is in the name of art in fact. The brand was named after the Babylonian princess who curated the world's first museum and this reflects our initiative to preserve and celebrate ancient design concepts for those in the present age to see.
Our first collection was inspired by the art and architecture of Mesopotamia, Ennigaldi's own world. The designs deliver Ancient Babylonian references in contemporary silhouettes, housing an appreciation of the past within a timeless structure, in a similar way that a museum does.
The Mesopotamia collection, which ranges from a small minimalist clutch to a large luxurious backpack, is limited in availability due to the time it takes to make each piece. Crafted from the finest box-calf-leather and hand-finished in Italy by highly skilled artisans, the designs feature laser-cut Babylonian motifs within meticulously stitched geometric frames and custom-designed gold hardware, including Ennigaldi's rod and ring symbol, in the form of a unique rotating clasp on the shoulder bag and totes.
Nathalie Bomio, the curator and founding vision behind Milk Concept Boutique, is delighted to be the first boutique in London to stock Ennigaldi, "We are thrilled to have Ennigaldi in our boutique. We felt there is something very special and unique about each design in their first collection and we were very impressed by the high level of quality and attention to detail. I am particularly drawn to the Mammetu clutch with the gold square-cut chain - a must-have for the party season!"
Ennigaldi's first collection is now available at Milk Concept Boutique, The Clerk's House, 118 1/2 Shoreditch High Street, London E1 6JN, Monday-Friday 11am - 7pm and Saturday - Sunday 11am - 6.30pm.
To celebrate, Ennigaldi and Milk Concept Boutique are hosting a special event on the evening of Thursday 1st December. Please contact us to be added to the guestlist.
