CATHERINE MALANDRINO LOVES PETER HERMANN
By mike1062 on 6/21/2008
It's true! Designer Catherine Malandrino said so in a recent article in French Marie Claire. She loves Peter Hermann because he is one of the few stores that carry French Designer Renaud Pellegrino's handmade handbags. The average price these day's is $1400 for one of these timeless, top of the line beauties. Peter told me he was permitted into Renaud's workshop in Paris where about 10 people work making all the bags completely by hand. Peter also tells me he has a very strong following for Renaud Pellegrino and that some of his customers buy 2 at a time because they can't decide which color they love the most. Can't wait for Renaud to do a men's line. I'll have to save up first!!!!!!!!!
my favorite source for Mandarina Duck
By mike1062 on 5/14/2008
Peter Hermann is a great place to fill all of your Mandarina Duck needs. It's hard to find a shop that stocks as much Mandarina as PH does. Mandarina Duck was recently sold to another big company so it will be interesting to see what comes out in the next year. The styles are already so drastically different than say 3 years ago. Peter say's now he has become very sellective in what he chooses to carry from them. P.H. used to repair Mandarina Duck for those who purchased their bags elsewhere but this is no longer the case. Now you have to contact Mandarina directly via their web site with any issues you may have. Peter will take great care of you if you buy from him however. He told me that P.H. will be the only shop in the US that has access to the bag lines from Mandarina Duck for 2008 at least. This store is must for all you Mandarina Duck fans to check out.

Peter Hermann is an amazing little store in Soho. The owner recently told me he has been there for 20 years now. That' some staying power for an area of town that draws MALL stores like Zales. Peter carries brands like Renaud Pellegrino from Paris. Gaggingly simple yet CHIC bags that are made by hand in Paris (NOT CHINA). Also you will find Jamin Puech - Paris, Brontibay - Paris, Orla Kiely - London, Mandarina Duck - Italy, Mauro Govera - Italy (superb bags) and a fabulous selection of men's bag from RO / RMD studio. Wallets are also a must to see here for men and women alike. Amazing sunglasses from Cutler & Gross - London. Truley a little dept. store tucked into this little store. More Peter Hermann stores are coming soon. P.S. If you see the sign, "Sorry but we are crowded . Please wait or try again later" , just WAIT. It's well worth it. BEWARE, this is not K-Mart. The prices will reflect that. Enjoy your shopping!!!
Best store in SOHO

Peter Hermann has the best choice and one of kind bags from Italy. The customer service is always wonderful and the atmosphere is very inviting and friendly. Peter and Mike are the best. Stop by and pay them a visit, you'll be glad you did. Donna

The best place to buy Mandarina Duck in the U.S. !
- The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
- Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
