Anne-Christin Schmitt, the creative mind behind the modern German accessory label Gretchen, grew up surrounded by leather goods in her family’s factory. Her designs are marked by a feminine forwardness, modern angles, and sculptural shapes found in nature.
Anne- Christin’s understanding of quality in workmanship and luxury in material is reflected in each piece she creates. Eclectic combinations of glazed and waxed calf leathers and elaborate profile elements are signature trademarks of the Gretchen look. The natural texture of these leathers exudes timeless luxury and lets the colourful collections shine.
Challenging the conventional, Anne-Christin takes on a different point of view and gives way to new concepts when designing her bags, gloves and other fine leather items.
