Ennigaldi is the luxury accessories brand born of a perfect marriage between historical and contemporary art. Recognise the name? Nor did we. But the brand’s namesake was the Babylonian Princess behind the world’s first ever museum and her mission to celebrate art and culture informs the designer’s ethos centuries later. With a female boss at the spiritual helm, Ennigaldi is about self-empowerment, creativity and art appreciation. Unsurprisingly, the label is the brainchild of young art collector, Gabriel Theuring, who despite his London base travels back to Ancient Mesopotamia for his inspiration.
The debut collection is a nod to the ancient art and architecture of its muse’s time, with geometric silhouettes and a majestic palette – expect sumptuous blues and earthy tones of deep orange, burgundy and sand. The brand faultlessly pairs traditional craftsmanship with contemporary minimalism, creating a range of art pieces to be curated by the wearer.
Available in limited numbers, each bag is made from the finest Italian calf leather with delicately laser-cut motifs and decadent gold hardware, hand-finished in England and Italy. Not sold yet? The brand is also teasing some exciting collaborations with the future of contemporary art as the creative team continues to delve into more art movements from the past. We’re expecting some pretty high-profile – and potentially, royal – fans.
