I am very much overwhelmed ever since one of your bags caught my eye - I think it was the black leather carmen shoulder bag, and been a follower ever since! I had been dying hard to find where your bags are for sale in Hong Kong and seems only very limited selection is now on sale at Harvey Nichols Hong Kong.
So I guess this is really the power of the internet where you could see styles happening across the otherside of the globe and get people connected! I see you had spent a lot of time in crafting these little cuties from the bag design to the fabric and pattening. They are awesome and there is a little something to your bag!
As much as I luv bags that are out of ordinary, I did ask myself to buy very practical bags thats good for work and parties but this is very hard to achieve. I really like the clutches you designed but I really had no parties to go to so they stay in the showroom of Harvey Nichols HK. Your bag falls out of this category of practicality and I really had to get it for my vanity I guess. After I realise is very sale time and your bags are on sale I had a dilema as to which to get? Practical leather or the marble or quilted clutch?????
From the moment I decided to buy my carmen fringes shoulder bag from Anthem Wares I believe I was very much spooked and waiting for the bag to be delivered by Mr. Postman! Obviously when the wait was finally over and the box was actually here - it is a great moment to do all the box opening. I luv the pink box you got to contained the bag itself. I was forseeing a dusting bag, but no, thats not in there except for the quote "if you can dream it, you can become it!" I am very happy that your dreams had come true and we as ladies get to use and collect your lovely bags. They are such an eyecandy!
I did used it yesterday in the sun in Hong Kong. I really luv the chain, you cannot find anything similar so this is more of a one and only piece you get. Not to say the quilted clutch with silk fringes is also something hard to find on the street. I luv the pink suede inside, its just so feminine and make your heart warm and fuzzy. Even the inner pocket with a zip are lined with a different silk fabric - such little details makes my heart melt!
The size of the inside are good enough for me to fit my ordinary purse plus a few essential items.
I do find some difficulty to close the bag with the magnetic closure either the magnet is not too strong enough or just need to know the bag a little bit better to know where exactly is the magnet is located so you do not look like someone with the bag open walking on the street (oops that was me!)
This would be one of my best buys for the year thought I kept telling myself to save, save and save!
Thank you Benedetta for the little "dream" that came true!
