Bags are one of the things I love to collect… Dune‘s new-ish collection of “True Love” garments/accessories are EVERYTHING – and I was kindly sent one of their bags to review.
It’s fair to note that they have trainers in this style too, but I was worried that the diamond detail might come off quicker if they were on my feet – and this made me hesitant. So, I chose the bag to review instead.
Let me begin by discussing the colour of the bag… It’s white. No, there aren’t other colours to choose from. Yes, white is an extremely tough colour for me to pull off because I’m relatively clumsy, and will manage to spill anything and everything on it to the point where it’ll stain. Bags and accessories are no different.
But, the fact that it’s not just white all over means it’ll no doubt be less noticeable. Green, blue, red and pink really compliment the white background and the charms, pearls etc. They’re really cute together. It really does not look too busy or tacky. The mix of colours works!
The leather is great. Apart from the strap feeling a bit flimsy, the bag itself doesn’t feel tacky.
As I explained briefly up top, the look of the bag is stunning. I love it so much. It pairs beautifully with a top and jeans. I like the fact that you can wear it during the day and/or on a night out.
Look, the bag is pretty small in size, but it’s still mighty nonetheless. You can store quite a bit in there, actually.
The only down sides in my opinion are the price (for a bag of its size) and the fact that the diamonds/charms might fall off after regular use.
OnDemand manufacturing may have just recently began growing in popularity, but serial entrepreneur Pablos Holman was cracking the market for years!
Holman, an American businessman, has long been manufacturing some eclectic tights on demand… Enter: Bombsheller!
The range of quirky, customizable leggings come in a range 10 sizes, and enable customers to choose from thousands of pre-selected designs (with the option to upload their own). Each pair is digitally printed, cut, sewn to shipped in as little as 24 hours…
“It took months for classical fashion business to become the final product,” reflects Pablos as his company Bombsheller continues to make waves in the “wearable technology” world.
The idea behind Bombsheller came when the computer expert [Pablos] decided that he wanted to break into the fashion market, whilst connecting it with his main passion, technology. “It will be the first programmable clothing factory,” Holman previously mentioned in an interview with The Independent.
Bombsheller continues to go from strength to strength, and will forever remain as one of the first innovators in OnDemand manufacturing – especially where fashion’s concerned.
