Brett is a decent folk guitarist and finds every excuse to go antiquing. She is an avid collector of art, as well as vintage jewelry and handbags. She began treasure hunting for clutches while growing up in LA and has amassed more then 100 evening bags from the 1950’s and 1960’s. When she could no longer find bags from this era at vintage or second-hand shops, Brett began researching the original fabrication techniques and long lost designers. When Brett found there was no manufacturer left from that time, she decided to remake the vintage handbags she collected for a new generation.
Edie Parker is a modern accessories label with an inherent sense of irreverence and wit. The brand evolved out of designer and founder, Brett Heyman’s love of mid-century style. The post-war period of design innovation in America inspires Edie Parker in its use of materials and also in the way product is made.
