The distinctive & individualistic designs of Samira Buchi New York are dreamt and constructed in the heart of Long Island City, Queens. A sunlit workshop surrounded by other artists and emerging pioneers of the design industry – Samira believes that this neighborhood’s evolving art scene is very much reminiscent of the SoHo of 70’s, just like many areas of Brooklyn over the past decade.
Between her home in Chelsea, Manhattan and studio in LIC, she is continuously inspired by the myriad culture in many distinct neighborhoods of NYC.
About the Nativ Collection
Samira takes on a vagabond couture approach – each bag of her first Nativ Collection is handcrafted and custom manufactured individually for each wearer in the studio. She works with every client through each step of the design process as she understands the companionship between the handbag and the human carrying it. Just like the individual, each bag is unique and has its own spirit.
In her first Nativ collection, she offers 9 different models using a flatline design methodology – and this is exactly what makes each bag different from the other. This method allows the bag to form its own shape depending upon what is put inside it, making it significant for all essential states of being.
The bags are made with soft unlined leather attributing to a minimalist feel. The Aniline leather is selected from the highest quality available. Each bag screams of luxury and sophistication, yet it is simple and functional. Samira Buchi New York handbags always take on the attitude and spirit of the woman who is carrying it. A woman that walks with empowerment surrounding femininity.
