International Vision: Hermann Plank for Peter Kent Handbags

Latest Peter Kent Handbag model feat. Swarovski crystals

Sleek design, bold color, Italian leather and fine craftsmanship—all things that define design label, Peter Kent Handbags.

Here in North America, we have Hermann Plank to thank for bringing this one-of-a-kind designer to the States, and specifically, right here to Phoenix.

The story begins in September 2006, when his wife and he discovered the design brilliance of the esteemed South American designer of Peter Kent Handbags, Hector Neer, when traveling in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Upon returning to the States, Mrs. Plank was stopped by a passerby to compliment and inquire as to where she got such a beautiful bag.

Then it clicked.

Grounded in the backgrounds of marketing and entrepreneurship, Plank paired his business savvy work ethic with his wife’s fashion ingenuity and approached Scottsdale boutiques to carry the Peter Kent label.

Before they even reached the doorstep of one Scottsdale boutique, the boutique owner came running out and quite literally attacked Mrs. Plank, dressed chicly in black, to inquire about her lime green Peter Kent bag, according to Plank, Advisory Board Member at Phoenix Fashion Week.

In just two weeks time, Plank became the marketing representative and importer for Peter Kent Handbags for the United States. In 2007, he contacted Phoenix Fashion Week, and received an eager response, giving the brand a “growing and coming out of infancy” establishment.

Plank defines the style of Peter Kent as “casual elegance, classic design with a modern twist that exhibits a clean line, beautiful soft leather and a timeless design.”

Each Peter Kent bag is looked upon as an individual artistic masterpiece.
