Irene van Vugt – IVV hats and bags

IVV hats & bags is the brand name of Irene van Vugt, a Dutch designer of hats and bags. After graduating the School of the Arts in Utrecht, Irene has been working as an independent designer and has participated in numerous exhibitions. IVV creates one of a kind handmade hats and matching handbags with personal craftmanship and an eye for detail. She likes to work with all kinds of materials, but has specialized in leather.

Often the design process starts with a sense of atmosphere that she has in mind. Fascinated by feminine looks and elegance of bygone times, she is inspired by the 1940s and 1950s. The love for sculptural experiments creates shapes and structures that make an IVV design recognizable and at the same time ensure that the classic and elegant forms still have a contemporary look.
