Through the creative minds of Simon Clark from Clark Estate Wines and Cushla Reed from Minx Shoes was born an idea, of the perfect gift for the woman who has it all.
New Zealand is filled with a variety of entrepreneurial spirits, keen to push the envelope and create new products, pairings and ideas. The latest endeavour from Minx and Clark Estate was just that, a classic collaboration born out of a passion for what they do.
For Simon, it is wine. Clark Estate has earned itself a reputation for producing some of the best wines in New Zealand. Despite this, Simon and Clark Estate had yet to produce a Rosé.
“We weren’t really sure how this wine would go! But we are so pleased with the consistency, the taste and the colour. And to launch it alongside Cushla and her team,” says Simon.
Cushla has been part of the design, technical, and management team at Minx Shoes since it’s inception. So when the opportunity arose to connect with Simon on something new, the first thing that came to mind was a wine tote bag.
“Simon and I have wanted to collaborate for a while now,” says Cushla.
“When we started talking, his Rosé and our wine tote bag – it just all fell into place!”
And so, two great creative minds from two great kiwi businesses are proud to present a limited edition Milled Leather Vintage Tote bag in collaboration with Simon Clark and Clark Estate Pinot Noir Rosé.
While this bag is first and foremost beautiful, it serves a functional purpose as well. The wine tote acts as the perfect companion for picnic, beach day out, heading out for dinner or anywhere where one needs a stunning tote that easily fits a wine bottle. Lined with neoprene, and with elastic holders on either side of the bag the wine (or other contents such as a laptop) is always protected.
This is more than a bag. It is a true collaboration and is the perfect present for that woman in your life who simply has everything. The perfect mix of wine and fashion – what more could a woman want?
