In Conversation with Cynthia Pennikian…
Cynthia Pennikian – a young and innovative handbag designer bringing the unique sense of fashion right there to hang on your sleeves. A whole new generation of personalized handbags is a blend of luxury leather, pioneering design and personalized touch.
Cynthia Pennikian was born in Lebanon and studies Advertising and Marketing before entering into the Fashion Design field. From her early years she revealed her passion for styling and developed her own unique sense of fashion as she grew up.
Cynthia’s dream was to open the doors of the fashion world for her real passion: designing clothing & accessories and she made her way! CeeCode became Cynthia’s first endeavor into the world of fashion through a sole & a distinct line of handbags.
CeeCode is not only a brand; it’s actually a persona of your inner self. It describes itself as every woman’s personality code. It gives you the variety of vigorous designs with an echo of groovy fun, love for life and sophistication. There is something very unique about Cynthia Pennikian; she knows exactly what CeeCode will suit your personality.
As we were hunting for our lust haves of the season we got the chance to plunge into the Cynthia’s gaudy and lurid world. We were staggered to sit with her in her real world (her office) which was groovy and chic.
SidSirus: CeeCode – What is the secret behind it?
Cynthia: Street Fashion with funkiness while still staying on trend, I do this by using different types of material, such as python colored and neon leather (EdgeCode).
SidSirus: How did you come up with this idea?
Cynthia: Being a handbag lover since I was a child, I was always trying to find a handbag that represented my own style and quirkiness. This was the idea behind the CeePlates and PlateCodes, which can be customized.
SidSirus: We see a lot of colors in your collection, what is the story behind them?
Cynthia: In all my collections, color plays a key part of the look and feel. If the bag is a more glamorous bag then colors will be more muted and basic. If the bag screams statement piece, I use neon colors and a mixture of different materials such as rubber and python leather.
SidSirus: Which is your favorite CeeCode?
Cynthia: I love all my designs, but the bag that I use every day is the CeeCode SashaCode in red, it’s a perfect fit for everything that I need to carry during the day!
SidSirus: One statement for CeeCode?
Cynthia: What hides in your CeeCode bag?
