Amy Adams Carried Kilian Hennessy’s “Surrender” Bag To The 2011 Golden Globes
When America’s redheaded sweetheart Amy Adams hit the red carpet at the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards, there were non vestiges of the teased hair, cut-off denim shorts, and low-cut spandex tops favored by her character Charlene Fisher in The Fighter. All traces of ’80s-era Lowell, Massachusetts fashion trends vanished as Adams showed off a deep blue, one-shoulder Marchesa gown with scalloped detailing along the bodice and shoulder accent.
True to her minimalist style, Adams bypassed chunky bracelets and necklaces and instead opted for one eye-catching accessory: the above-pictured Surrender clutch by Kilian Hennessy, part of the designer’s Night Fetishes collection. Though Hennessy is best known for his work as a perfumer, he recently branched out into handbag design, with posh pieces imbued with his unique interpretation of elegance and femininity, available exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman.
The rectangle-shaped “Surrender” bag’s mirrored, jet black enamel material, the angled silver strips running along the front façade, and the grayish tint of the crystal stones adorning the edges of the rectangular closure, with its domed center bar, all nod to the packaging of the By Kilian Love And Tears Surrender fragrance launched last autumn, creating a sense of synergy between Hennessy’s fragrance and fashion endeavors.
The contrast of black and silver, the mirrored sheen, and the starbust-like stripes all give the “Surrender” clutch a triumphant, upscale Art Deco feel. Who wouldn’t want to surrender?
