IN PARTNERSHIP WITH DARA HAMARNEH
Supple leather, delicate cuts, strong stitching. We are constantly looking for the next best vehicle to carry our belongings, hoping not to lose our chapstick this time or equipping ourselves against an unexpected runny nose as we gallop through the bustling streets of our cities.
Crossbody, top handles, or embellished by a gem adorning a snap-on top of its closure, timeless it-bags are not easy to come across nowadays. What is it about bags that intrigue us so much? Why do we stress the importance of carry-all pouches? Elongated, round, shapely. Bags represent a mobile home. A place to hold our precious objects when we leave our shelter. They keep us from stuffing our garments with items, risking deforming our pockets with the weight of our large smartphones.
Candy-colored, soft, feminine. Dara Hamarneh’s bags are classic and reminiscent of the 90s. She gives us options, different textures and shapes. Her products are inspired by the soft elegance of make-up free Hollywood-divas, a celebration of femininity. To carry your trinkets, credit card, cash or love letters, the Jordanian designer embodies Middle Eastern simplicity. Dara Hamarneh’s bags are a jubilation of master craft, elevated aesthetic and a sparkle of quirk.
