Just recently, we were going through a slew of new releases and guess what we discovered? The Christian Louboutin of handbags! Soft calfskin leather on the outside, Duchess satin red lining on the inside, it seems our latest favorite is “The Riviera”, a bespoke tote bag by Carmin luxury handbags. Named after the French Riviera, not only does it come with double leather handles and stunning gold accents in several colors but also with a personalized service that offers to quilt your initials on one side, or both, or none if you’d like it blank. But would you? Which is why we also looked up Carmin’s other collections.
Crafting handbags in a French workshop recognized for its skilled artisans, Carmin has a ravishing repository of timeless yet thoroughly modern pieces created using only the finest quality materials. And this is something we couldn’t fail to notice in their ‘Les Intemporels’ collection, consisting in quilted soft lambskin handbags (Vicki Shoulder bag, Paris clutch) and their calfskin equivalents (Hobo). Then there’s the new Riviera of course, the personalize-able nature of which led us to the other magnifique collection- La Collection Personnalisée.
Albane Chevallier-Chantepie, the Company’s founder and creative director, loves the idea that a woman’s handbag being a reflection of her self and hiding her most valuable treasures and secrets, should be unique. Which would explain why ‘La Collection Personnalisée’ has turned out to be for women who desire to own a unique and exclusive piece of luxury. With all the fine trimmings of ‘Les Intemporels’, this line offers a bespoke service, where handbags are personalized with every client’s quilted initials. Chevallier-Chantepie believes the future of luxury is about aesthetic, craftsmanship and personalization. And who wouldn’t want their own, “The Riviera” made to order?
