On March 2, 2010, luxury handbag designer Linda Masquefa will be showcasing her exclusive collection of handcrafted creations at the world culture inspired Pangea Restaurant in Panama City. The designer will be present to display her current limited number pieces, as well as reveal her newest collection.
The Linda Masquefa Trunk Show finds the designer back in the land where her creative journey began. Inspiration first struck Masquefa during a visit to a Panama crocodile farm. The unique skins were the most exquisite, wondrous materials she had ever seen and were the catalyst to her couture handbag creations. Marrying these exclusive skins with classic and innovative design, the most desirable handles, closures and accent hardware from Italy, and old world craftsmanship has placed Masquefa's creations at the vanguard of true luxury handbag reinvention. Her luxury pieces are now housed in premier boutiques in Las Vegas, Laguna Beach and Panama City.
Pangea Restaurant, which is ancient Greek for "entire world," sets the perfect backdrop for the intricately imagined Linda Masquefa Collection. Six rooms, each in their own unique and distinctive style, and the multi-cultured platform exude the aesthetic and artistic idealism of Masquefa's eclectic pieces. Pangea owner Gary Doherty called on the services of interior designer Jennifer Simpson to bring to life the most beautiful cultural imagery from around the world, invoking the spirit of old worlds past while melding the highest value of current technology. Each distinct room (Asia, Caribbean, East Africa, North Africa, South America and Indian Sub Continent) all holds claim to sought-after gourmet food and the finest consumptions.
