The bag gene: PB 0110
PB 0110 – a newcomer brand that begs the question: What secret liew behind that cryptic name? fashionette is here to tell you: PB 0110 is the combination of the initials and the birth date of the label founder Philipp Bree, who was born on the 1st of October as the heir to the bag empire – his love for beautiful bags was practically laid out for him. In 2012, Philipp Bree brought his own label to life with the conception of PB 0110 and left his family business (founded in 1970) which he had beenrunning with his brother for 10 years. In January 2013, Philipp Bree – not a designer himself, but a passionate bag lover and visionary – presented his debut collection in Berlin and Paris, which took the fashion world by storm with the minimalist, high quality aesthetic.
PB 0110: Minimalist chic with maximum quality
Philipp Bree believes in the relevance of beloved everyday objects, which over time become must-have companions. The use of natural leather, linen and solid brass – all natural materials that become more beautiful over time and develop a unique patina as the years pass – embodies this philosophy and highlights the unique DNS of the newcomer brand. Philipp Bree uses only the highest quality materials from selected European traditional manufacturers. The leather used to make these bags is hand selected and purely vegetable tanned. This gentle process gives them their natural surface structure, while the leather remains smooth to the touch. Philipp Bree gets the zips for his bags from Germany, while the natural linen comes from Belgium and is cultivated without the use of any pesticides. It is woven by an Italian family business which was known in the 19th Century for its robust ropes, which are still used to this day to hold up many church bells in Tuscany – high quality through and through, which makes PB 0110 a very special newcomer.
