From pop-ups to high-tops, shopping around town this winter will make fashionistas smile.
London-based Métier, which is new to Aspen, offers a range of leather bags, including the Incognito Cabas.
Beautifully handcrafted bags have arrived in Aspen from across the pond. Métier, founded in the Mayfair section of London, has teamed up with pop-up shop The Art of Cozy. The exquisitely curated selection of leather bags and accessories is a welcome addition to the downtown shopping vibe. Favorites include the Private Eye bag, which is handforged into a marvel of structured softness concealing meticulously designed compartments. Another stunning bag is the Stowaway with a crossbody strap, which comes in smooth calfskin black, suede Marrakech, linen natural and smooth calfskin white sand. 411 E.

ART OF SHOPPING
A last minute pop-up idea during our pandemic summer has become one of Aspen’s go-to shops this winter. Conceptualized by Jamie Tisch, AD100 designer Rodman Primack and his husband, Rudy Weissenberg, Pitkin Projects has become a smash hit. The team created a unique retail space for its daring blend of jewelry, art, fashion and furniture. Tisch called on friends like jewelry designer Lisa Eisner, artist David Wiseman, designer Brett Heyman of Edie Parker and others to contribute their craft. What’s next for the store? Tisch says they’re sticking around and will continue to showcase incredible artists—a seminal shop at the right moment in Aspen. 516 E. Hyman Ave., pitkinprojects.com
