The COLLECTOR, a line of luxury handbags from Geneva, Switzerland founded by Sophie Bonvin celebrated the launch of their latest collaboration, the CODE Collection with artist Bill Claps, at the Crosby Street Hotel in New York City.

Proceeds from the event will be donated to The Angelica Patient Assistance Program, a charity dedicated to improving the lives of economically disadvantaged long-term care patients through programs including art and music therapy. Five percent of sales during the event, and 3.5 percent of sales throughout the month of October 2017, will be donated to The Angelica Patient Assistance Program.

The bags were on display throughout the launch party, where guests could place orders and discuss the pieces with Sophie and Bill. The collection will remain in New York City throughout the month of October, after, prospective buyers can place their orders through The COLLECTOR’s website, http://thecollector.ch/.

Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres as they viewed the collection of handbags, which are crafted from fine exotic skins and feature motifs by Bill, whose work reflects on communication in the digital age by utilizing the dots and dashes of Morse code.

Attendees included Fareen Butt, Marie-Claire Gladstone, Avanti Gupta, Missy Hargraves, Antoine Verglas, Aurora Fenwick, David Brown, Patricia and Cecilia Lizarraga, Amanda Cronin, Lauren Casarona, Genny Kopina, Masha Filonova, Gigi Salomon, Paul Robinson, Lydia Duanmu, Li Wang, Karen Koval, David Barish, Lauren Richman, Janet Temidayo, Jessie Kirchman, Vita Dauksaite, Irena Yelanchik and Olga Raganelli.
