Before today, I had never heard of Zeus + Dione handbags. But when I saw the Zeus + Dione Attiki Tasseled Bag on Net-A-Porter, I figured I should do a little investigating in to this designer. According to their biography, Zeus + Dione celebrates Greek tradition through a combination of craftsmanship and contemporary design. They are renowned for their collaboration with skilled artisans and local workshops. I could have probably guessed that. Zeus and Dione are pretty well-known names in Greek mythology. From what I can see though, there is a lot more to this brand than its name.
Inspired by Greece’s rich Hellenic heritage, Zeus + Dione’s Attiki handbag is named after a neighborhood in Athens.
When I look at the Zeus + Dione Attiki Tasseled Bag, I cannot help but marvel in its simplistic beauty. The shape of this bag really calls to me. The structured shape and sharp lines make this bag feel very sophisticated. Yet there is also a bit of a playful side thanks to the large tassel dangling from underneath. I love the little details too like the waxed thread stitching and wide shoulder strap. They really show the care that was put into making this piece. The plum (reddish brown) color is gorgeous too. It would be perfect for fall!
