Material & details

A Fusion of Art Deco Elegance and Modern Luxury.

My client elevates her style with the “Vé” handbag. A true masterpiece meticulously crafted to capture the essence of her favourite Art Deco-inspired modern villa. Designed for the discerning connoisseur of fine fashion, this handbag is a testament to sophistication and luxury.

Aesthetic Elegance: The “Vé” handbag is a work of art in itself, featuring a seamless blend of two distinct types of deep midnight blue deadstock leathers, one with a matte finish and the other with a satin-like sheen. These exquisite materials not only exude opulence but also evoke the opulent ambiance of the Art Deco era.

Thoughtful Design: Every detail of the “Vé” handbag has been meticulously thought out. On the back, you’ll find a discreet hidden key pocket for added convenience and security, while the front boasts an accessible smartphone pocket. The sides of this front pocket subtly hint at the refreshing mint green interior lining, adding an unexpected pop of color.

Versatile Silhouette: The “Vé” handbag is a masterful fusion of shapes, with a circular design on the left side and a sleek rectangular profile on the right. This unique combination is a visual representation of the blending of classic and modern design elements, making it a standout piece in any ensemble.

Secure Closure: Ensuring both functionality and style, the handbag is equipped with a sleek black metal zipper with double sliders for effortless access. The sliders of the zipper can be hidden under the closure for the front pocket, creating a harmonious and stylish look.

Interior Splendor: Open the handbag, and you’ll discover a refreshing surprise—its interior is lined with vibrant mint green suede leather, invoking the feeling of stepping into a lush garden oasis within your modern villa. An interior zipper pocket adds practicality, ensuring your essentials stay organized.

Two Ways to Carry: The “Vé” handbag comes complete with two versatile straps. The first is a short, wide strap designed for comfortable shoulder wear, perfect for a dressed occasion. The second is a long, slender crossbody strap, ideal for those moments when you want to go hands-free. This dual-carry feature ensures that the “Vé” handbag seamlessly adapts to your lifestyle.

Timeless Elegance: With its blend of classic Art Deco inspiration and modern luxury, the “Vé” handbag is a true embodiment of timeless elegance. Whether you’re dressing up for a special occasion or adding a touch of sophistication to your everyday look, this handbag effortlessly combines sporty functionality with high-end chic.

Indulge in the epitome of style and luxury with the “Vé” handbag, a true reflection of your favorite Art Deco-inspired modern villa. Elevate your fashion game and make a statement wherever you go with this exquisite piece that marries the past and the present in perfect harmony.
