The Insider:Three aspects of design crucial for making a statement bag
Alberto: The most important elements of design are the inspiration, the construction and shape, and the combination of leather and metal details.
Colours, cuts and style trending internationally
Bucket bags are a must-have presently. This Autumn-Winter, red and white colours are trending, and soft squares from the 70’s are in trend, in terms of cuts.
Three tips to take care of a luxury bag?
- Use a cloth cover to store your bag when not using it.
- Clean the bag with a leather cream every six months.
- Lastly, love your bags!
Any difference between European and Indian design sensibility?
There is not much of a difference apart from the cultural difference which varies with the taste. There is mostly a difference in designing due to a brand’s identity.
What’s fashion harakiri according with all things bags
Synthetic bags. I feel bags should be leather. Bags which do not give you an emotion or a story are not something I like.
