There is simply so much talent and creativity in the world of handbag designers that it is truly a blessing to be able to talk about some of the newer designers offering future classics! Lena Erziak is a fantastic brand which features striking designs, a stunning range of colors and quality fabrications. The product of sisters Leona and Hasna Erziak with a multi-cultural background of a Belgian Moroccan family of artists including a seamstress and a potter. The process of design and understanding of construction was simply something they absorbed during their childhood.
The sisters developed their line in Italy, utilizing on the finest craftsman and materials. Their first collections focus attention on interior and exterior finish, different shapes and sizes to complete a refined and luxurious collection of handbags. The epitome of this effort is the Andrea shoulder hobo handbag.
The Andrea takes a classic and casual shape to the next level of sophistication. The sleek silhouette features well-balanced dimensions with a handle that is designed to be more comfortable in the hand than some other hobos might be. A rectangular flap closure accented with gold logo plate is just the right size to not be difficult to use and provides a classic element. The angled zippered pockets create a striking design feature and accessibility to the most important items you carry like your phone or credit cards. The oversized tassle element creates instant visual “punch” and movement.
The interior is fully lined with a hidden coin pocket and key organizer. You’ll appreciate it’s roomy but not overly large size of 13″ x 12″ x 2″. While I love this beautiful cream color, it is also available in a yummy blue or purple suede. And the colors are rich and vibrant! Their bags are available at Stella Filante as the retail location. 156 Ludlow St, NY NY as well as other locations! Check out their other styles at www.lenaerziak.com
