Tell me what bag you have and I’ll tell you who you are . We came up with this motto, but every woman will know it’s true. Elegant, ethnic, alternative, sophisticated, for daytime, for ceremonies, the list is endless.
The choice of the bag is like the choice of a dress, we match it according to what we wear, according to our character and our emotions of the moment.
Then there are those bought for fashion , for designer labels , which we show off to be admired in the eyes of other women, who squint when they see us pass, to ascertain whether it is fake or original .
There are bags that have made history, designed by great designers and bags recently, but kept a lifetime. There are bags that we can only dream of, so much so that the price is unapproachable, but we know how to dream is beautiful and is good for the soul.
