Finding the prefect light wight summer bag is not always easy. Something that looks fabulous with the everyday casual jeans and a t-shirt or a cute summer dress, but is also practical and spacious. Designer bags by Philini offer just this, with their range of cotton cross the body bags that have been designed for Spring/Summer 2017.
Who are Philini?
Philini is a German based designer brand owned by Nataly Brunner. Nataly started to create items of clothings at the age of just 13 using her mothers old clothes. By the age of 20 Nataly had opened her own fashion house in her home country of Moldova. Later moving to Germany to working hard to make her designing dreams come true. Nataly now runs a very successful designer brand making luxury leather based items.
Philini specialise in making very limited numbers in each style and colour of bags, so seeing someone else with your stunning bag is very unlikely. With a designer bag, the last thing you want to be walking about Covent Garden to see other people with the same one.
My ‘Flora Black’ across the body bag
The ‘Flora Black’ is a very light weight bag, perfect for those summer days. The bright floral cotton fabric, making it the prefect statement bag, that would complement any outfit this summer. Great for simple dresses or just that casual jeans and t-shirt look. It’s a spacious bag with two zipped pockets on the inside, to keep your valuables safe. Then has a magnetic button style closure at the top. The straps and edges is made of black calfs leather, the strap is adjustable. So if you wanted it slightly longer or shorter it can be adjusted to suit your outfit, or to change from a shoulder bag to across the body.
The size of this bag is great, not to small not to big. Measuring 30 x 30cm square and just 2 cm wide but that expands depending on what you fill it with.
My ‘Flora Black’ bag cost €159 so is a investment bag for the summer months. Think weekends away with the girls. A flight bag with enough space for tickets, passport and money. Heading off to a festival or even if you are just popping to the shops this bag is versatile for so many occasions. I love it.
*Thank you so much Philini for gifting me this beautiful bag, looking forward to using it over the summer months. As always thoughts and opinions are my own.*
