THE BRAINS AND BEAUTY BEHIND NAKED VICE

We caught up with the beautiful blondies, Sarah Hanan and Jessie Herbert, that turned an idea over the dinner table into reality..

WHO TAKES THE CREDIT FOR COMING UP WITH THE BIG IDEA OF ‘NAKED VICE’?

I think it was actually both of us! We were having dinner one night and I was complaining that I couldn’t find a good quality leather bag that wasn’t branded! By the end of the dinner we had orgnaized a trip to Bali to find a supplier!

 

WHERE DID THE NAME ‘NAKED VICE’ COME FROM?

We actually owe the name to Jessie’s mum! Figuring out the name was the hardest part of starting. We had the vision we just couldn’t sum it up in one word. Jessie’ mum threw it on the table after she got home from a long night shift. It was laughed off at first then we realized it was everything our brand was about. You are Naked with out your bag and your Vice is something you can’t live with out.

We are hoping next year will be another huge year for Nakey! We are hoping to open our first store in Melbourne and try and break into the US market! We have the best team so by having more hands on deck is a huge help!

 

YOU NEED TO GIVE US A SNEAK PEAK INTO YOUR NEXT COLLECTION.. WHAT WILL WE BE SEEING?

Never thought I would say it but lots of caramel and browns!  Patent Croc is huge in the next collection. We have touched on the plaid trend and included some beautiful textured fabric on certain styles. We love to stay true to our heritage so we are bringing back some of our cult classics in updated leathers also! As much as we love being on trend its super important for us to provide girls with classic styles through out every season.
