Christianna Ibikunle is a designer of luxury accessories.
The products showcased here are the culmination of two years investigation into the rapidly changing world of the urban male
, for which she received a special commendation from the Helen Hamlyn centre
in 2010. These pieces address the issues and provide functional solutions to enable this mythical man, to fulfill his daily work/life scenario without compromising on the aesthetic appeal of the designs. Christianna has a background in textiles therefore a love of materials is evident in her work. Providing a high quality product is essential, as is quality workmanship and attention to detail..*
Christianna does not just design exclusively for men. In some cases her bags appeal to men and women. However in 2005, Christianna launched a collection of women’s bags and purses that inevitably led to her retraining as an accessories designer at Cordwainers College at London College of Fashion and then the Royal College of Art.
In addition to her design practice, Christianna offers a bespoke service, for those who are looking for a tailor made product. For all enquiries, please contact her directly at info (at) christiannaibikunle.com
