” With only one bag , you can change your outfit completely ” – SONIA RYKIEL
A bag defines and adds definition to your attire. We women always want to look our best, want to pair the outfit right down to the toes. Whether going out to meet friends or going off to the office. Here are some handbag brands that I came across while shopping online for a casual yet chic handbag.
HIDESIGN- This list would be incomplete without this brand. It is a Pondicherry based brand set up by Dilip Kumar in 1978. All their products are vegetable tanned giving it a unique patina(aged look) acquired with use and also making their practices environmentally friendly, Vegetable tanning creates strong and lasting leathers. The brand has made its presence felt internationally and invited investment from a giant like Louis Vuitton. All the more reason to check out their new collection! PRICE: Rs3000-8000

VIARI- Set up in Chennai, was started by a designer duo. Inspired by the global traveller. They say you travel to different worlds every day, in each of these worlds you sport a different avatar. You have a Viari for every mood and day. They come in different colours and sizes. Love the vibrant colours they offer from baby pinks to neons. From side bags t0 satchels to brief cases. Cutesy collection. I like them solely for the vibrant colours they offer, haven’t come across people claiming to be selling genuine leather in such colours. PRICE: Rs1100-13,000.

VITASTA- Based on the idea of ” EVERYDAY LUXURY ” Vitasta was launched in 2011. Every bag is handmade! They believe in quality over quantity, design over trend, slow fashion over mindless consumption. They do not offer a variety like the other brands but it is pocket friendly! Particularly like her Cabas woven bag (red bag in the picture below) from her new spring 18 collection simply because it is made woven like the jute beach bags. PRICE: Rs4000- 15,000

SQUARE LOOP – Brain child of designer Kanika Sachdeva. Located in the Hauz Khas village, the brand boasts dusky earthy tones. I see them working out really well with your day to day work wear attire. Crisp edgy squares and rectangles with contrast detailing, such as a cream pocket on a dirty chocolaty brown base and dark brown handle and closing straps . The earthy tones make for an ideal summer buy! PRICE: Rs5000- 10,000
