If I could give myself a diagnosis, it would be – Bag-a-holic. I love bags and find them to be extension of my home, my private and professional life..and of course…extension of my inner self.
I really don’t care about high-end brands – besides quality only thing I care about the bag is the story behind her. I love craftsmanship, colors, little details. Bags that stand out from the crowd. Bags which are close to me and have their own story in which I can find myself.
Recently I fell in love with sewing and designing my very own handbags – every one of them is product of love. I hope that one day I will be able to reach at least a part of craftsmanship of some of my favorite handbag designers.
Handbag by “Braccialini”…I just love her…
Dress by Desigual, bought on E-bay
Ballet flats bought in Istanbul for 30 kn (5 $) – that was a good shopping 🙂
Handmade cherry earrings bought at Etsy, watch with motif of “Prince Tower” bought in Istanbul
And now, some of my favorite handbag brands 🙂 – prepare yourself for full color seizure !
Mary Frances Handbags
Mary Frances designs each item personally and they are all handmade ensuring the highest quality. Mary Frances grew up being influenced by the vibrant spirit and excitement of the San Francisco Bay Area. Her creations are truly works of art that any woman would be proud to wear. Mary’s philosophy is, “Life is too short to dress boring!”
Braccialini is a 50-year old leather accessories company based in Florence, Italy. Main designer and founder of the company is Carla Braccialini. An incident where Carla’s bag was stolen inspired her to create a bag in the shape of a house and the brand’s tagline “In your handbag lies all your life” was born. The bag was well received in the market and gave Carla the opportunity to play around with her creativity and passion. Until this day brand maintained its essence and continued to produce bags with color, fantasy and creativity.
Woody Ellen Handbags
Woody Ellen is a Belgian illustrator and figurative painter. She creates her very own cabaret. The border between thoughts and reality are vague. A world where everything is a little more vivid and vibrant than in our own pragmatic surroundings. Just like thoughts pop in and out, she paints pictures and produces this beautiful vintage handbags.
Prada Handbags – SS 2008 Fairy Collection and SS 2014 Face Prints by Jeanne Deallante
Dejvid & Cili fashion design, Croatia
Amazing brand from Rijeka, Croatia which I discovered couple of years ago and since then I’m amazed by the sheer talent, love and quality behind their products. Dejvid and Cili Ivanovski design leather handbags, sandals and jewelry. They find their main inspiration in beauty of nature. In their own words, their designs are “…for women (and men !) who know how to recognize quality and design.”
