Founded in 2016 by Stephane Park, Aesther Ekme is an accessories label that takes its name from the Crimean Tatar language, roughly translating to ‘a classic shoulder bag’. The brand prides itself on creating simple yet elevated handbags in iconic styles including the much-loved bucket, tote and barrel silhouettes. Aesther Ekme uses the highest-quality leathers, removing any unnecessary trimmings, patterns and hardware to ensure all focus is on the pure essence of luxury. Drawing on the allure of timelessness, the founder utilises neutral colour palettes, allowing the wearer to express their own identity. Founded in 2016, Aesther Ekme specializes in handbags that are high-quality and accessible. Aesther Ekme creative director Stephane Park draws on her experience at Alexander Wang and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in creating her designs, which reflect the modern, minimalist aesthetic synonymous with her adopted home of Copenhagen. Stripped of ornamentation and hardware, and crafted with a focus on functionality, Aesther Ekme handbags are a go-with-anything choice designed especially for fashion-forward women who value style over trend.
