    What an unflattering photoshoot. All the bags look horrible in these pictures – everything is wrong; the backdrops, positioning against the hevaily leaved trees, etc. Only the model looks alright. Who ever organised this shoot? Too bad for the poor designer. Hope she didnt pay for this shoot or for placing them on this site – gosh!!

      Except for three of the clucthes hiding too far away in the bushes,the whole idea was very good. as in out of the box.Don’t you think you are being too hard on the creative director Anna? It really isn’t that bad.

      I agree with you there,she thought outside the box…Those hating are simply following the crowd and cant stand alone…Kudos girl,you definitely killed it in a good way!

    The bags are one of a kind.. I cant wait to get my girlfriend one and she takes that as a token for the full bride price to come

    the bags look classy. Anna i know its very easy to criticise but really, what can ur un-artistic little mind make? i dont know who made these bags but i know theyr awesome. especially the pink one up there.

    I have to say that I love the bags! Wow; there is a lot of them and the varies shapes, textures and prints are great! Would love to see her design some shoes too! Great job dear!

  19. Mujer casada

    July 30, 2012 at 2:13 pm

    I am feeling there is no originality in the bags. Did I not see these shapes/concepts from a Phillipino designer that supplies Nordstroms and Saks? I actually met her at Sams Club doing a special lately?

  22. PJ

    July 30, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    I think they should not have dressed the model in that gorgeous dress. It killed the bags. All I can see is the dress and its so beautiful. Where can we get the dress please?

  23. boye

    July 30, 2012 at 3:22 pm

    Cute collection, we need to encourage our designers.

  24. eye

    July 30, 2012 at 3:35 pm

    Cute bags! the creative director had a vision but didnt execute properly. The bags are not equally original tho. seen alot of them way back….

  25. Oly

    July 30, 2012 at 3:46 pm

    l love the bags, u guys should take it easy on the criticisms because it is not beans to make these bags n every other thing that the designer did. Loved the model, she tall no b small.

    i wish the photographer used his/her lighting better these pictures would have been better if that was the case 🙂 or used lightroom or photoshop to edit the photos us the pictures look raw ….other than that fantastic bags lovely model lovely wonderland concept 🙂

    July 30, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    The bags are definately different. I love the prints. The designer has definately got a fashion point of view, which is always a good thing. A complete collection with someting for almost every occassion. With time and improvements, I see this label doing seriously big things. Kudos.
