It started with a treasure hunt. Brett Heyman was in search of the perfect vintage clutch, or rather, all the vintage clutches of a specific variety: acrylic evening bags in beautiful colors, with satisfying clasps and gorgeous hardware, made with the skilled precision of master craftspeople in the 1950’s and 60’s. Brett stalked antique shops and flea markets until she had over 100 clutches in her collection, when it seemed like she’d exhausted her supply. It was then, in 2011, that she decided to create her own. Brett partnered with an American factory and began reimagining the mid-century pieces she coveted — with a twist.
And there’s always a twist. At Edie Parker, every piece is infused with our signature brand of wit, whether it’s a purse covered in pretzels, a clutch emblazoned with the word of the moment, or simply a shocking color combination. These pieces make statements while remaining utterly sophisticated — the perfect blend of fun and fashion.
Conceived as a line of clutches, the brand now offers bags in a range of sizes, materials and fabrications, as well as jewelry and a growing home collection. Launched in 2012, the Edie Parker Bespoke program allows customers to personalize their bags and home items.
