Pronounced: Bought Key Air
Monica Botkier’s keen eye for accessories has resonated with the designer since her upbringing in New York City. A true New Yorker at heart, Monica’s collections are influenced by the constantly evolving landscape that is her hometown.
In 2003, while Monica was building her name as a fashion photographer globally, she decided to launch her namesake label from her SoHo showroom. The first collection introduced the classic Trigger bag, which became a cult classic for the brand. In 2007, Monica was recognized for her contributions to the accessories industry by being inducted as a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
Botkier has created a niche in the accessory handbag market that previously had a void and consumers were awaiting an approachable designer handbag brand. Botkier was the first independent designer accessories brand and Monica continues to run the Botkier business with the same innovation and passion from the brand’s inception. Each handbag embodies luxury through custom detailing and quality leather while maintaining functionality.
Botkier has been featured in the pages of ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle, Marie Claire and VOGUE. Botkier celebrity fans include Angelina Jolie, Beyonce Knowles, Halle Berry, Jessica Alba and Rihanna.
