Check out this exclusive Leather Lunch bag by Simon Miller

Are you tired of the same old paper rolled, or horrendous plastic lunch bags? If you chorused that with a yes, then worry not, as Simon Miller is here to save your day! The designer brand has recently launched a leather Lunch bag option for you, which means that you can carry and flaunt around your food with equal style from now on!

Crafted with 100% goatskin leather, the bag comes with a fold over magnetic closure, metal feet and gold tone embossed logo on the front. It maintains a simplistic design all along, thus fusing in the charm of the traditional, while still making a fashion statement of sorts! It is available in a ‘seamless to carry’ size of 19 cm / 7.5 inches X 21 cm / 8.5 inches X 10 cm / 4 inches and can be purchased in various color options ranging from black and yellow to a vibrant turquoise blue. And while you can most certainly carry around your food in it, we’d rather use Simon Miller’s latest as a clutch purse with panache!

When Simon Miller was initially launched as a men’s denim label a decade ago, little had we thought that it would deliver such fabulous trinkets into our kitties! But here it is, doing just that! Why not we head on then and grab ourselves an exclusive Simon Miller lunch bag (starting at $345 USD) right away!

AIGNER Announces its First Regional Collaboration with Ascia Al Faraj

AIGNER is pleased to announce its first collaboration in the Middle East with the famous American-Kuwaiti influencer, Ascia Al Faraj who is designing a Limited Edition AIGNER bag together with Creative Director Christian Alexander Beck aptly titled, the Ascia Bag.

The international blogger has brought her own personal style to the collection – choosing the colour, style and pattern. The new bag will be based on the classic Genoveva design from AIGNER’s main collection, which has proven to be a very successful design in the region. A vintage clip lock-shaped bag, which represents the AIGNER logo, the Genoveva is synonymous with the brand and its craftsmanship.

The eye-catching #Asciabag truly represents Ascia’s unique character, which is both chic and statement-making, the #Asciabag will feature a marble print effect on smooth grain leather. Gracing a metal handle with AIGNER statement bolts, this versatile bag will come with an extra pendant with bolts and cabochons. The rear side of the pendant and inside of the bag will be embossed with “Ascia exclusively for AIGNER” inscribed in rosé-gold.

One of the region’s most popular fashion bloggers, with over 2 million followers on Instagram, the turban wearing style icon pioneered the personal style blog wave in the region and has since garnered a reputation for being one of the most influential fashion voices in the region. With a candid style that resonates with AIGNER & Christian Beck’s creative spirit, Ascia is the perfect fit for this collaboration.

For almost 50 years, the luxury brand has been focussing on handmade craftsmanship, attention to detail and sophisticated design. AIGNER workmanship is a statement of classic artistry, which also proves that change and tradition are not mutually exclusive. Each bag creation tells the story of its origin and unifies contrasts into one cohesive design: modern technology and styles are combined with tried and tested expertise.

The Limited Edition #Asciabag will be available from mid-January 2018 across all AIGNER Shops in UAE for AED 3425.

Check out this pair of sneakers that is made from recycled chewing gum

We’ve all had gum stuck to our shoe soles at some point in life but having a shoe sole made out of gum itself? Now, that’s new and unheard of! Here to woe us with this unique concept is a company called Explicit wear that has recently tied up with city marketing organization Iamsterdam and sustainability company Gumdrop to create a sneaker out of recycled gum!

Christened as Gumshoe, the sole of this unique shoe is made from recyclable compounds or Gum-Tec’s as they are called. As described by Anna Bullus, managing director and designer at Gumdrop., “We discovered gum is made from a synthetic rubber. And by breaking down these properties, we were able to create a new type of rubber.” It is this very invention that helped the brands build an impressive shoe, which by composition would consist of 20% recycled chewing gum. The raw material for building the Gum Tec is sourced from the streets of Amsterdam that disposes close to 3.3 million pounds of gum on its sidewalks each year.

Available in color options of red and pink, these shoes are just what you need to become an eco-friendly athlete in the making! In addition to their exclusive soles, the sneakers also boast of a stylish leather body, for the perfect look. The Gumshoe will be up for sale onward June 2018 for a surprisingly affordable price of $232 USD.
