Trendy DIY Bags Ideas

19 Mar

Are you bored with using regular bags? Are you looking for something special?

Here is some inspiration for you:

Designer brands and grocery brands? This is hip right now. Designers create bags with the grocery labels on them. The results are great. If you don’t want to buy a designer bag, create your own bag.

Recycling is THE trend, so if you are short on cash, make a Capri – Sonne Juice bag. You just have to drink a lot of Capri – Sonne Juice and sew all the small bags together.

Looks pretty cool and is the perfect bag for the beach!

You’re clutch is too boring. Pimp it up with a little smiley face made out of Lego pieces.

As kids we had a star glitter plastic cup.  As grown ups we prefer to wear a butterfly glitter globe clutch. Get the box clutch on darbysmart.com and create your own butterfly glitter globe clutch.

You can pimp up your bag by adding some fun accessories like the Minie Mouse or Daisy Duck.

Another idea is to use a plastic gummy bear as a clutch.

You can get the clutch from the designer Charlotte Olympia or a cheaper version from the website thinkgreek.com and decorate it as you want it.

Last but not least, just take an old black leather bag and write the message that comes up in your mind with a different color.

Pop-up stores at the 080 Barcelona Fashion Week

26 Feb

At the 080 Barcelona Fashion Show I had the opportunity to not only enjoy the designer Celia Vela’s show as you could see in the previous post, but also could explore and meet local designers at their pop-up stores.

Here are some of my favourites that I discovered:

Formentera Lady & Co

The designer Claudia D’ Anca was inspired to create jewellry on the island Formentera. She lived there for many years and the magic island helped her to transform her emotions into forms and colours. That is why she created her first jewellry collection inspired by the beautiful small island Formentera.

And since then, all Formentera Lady & Co jewellry collections have been inspired by the natural beauty of the island and its flowers and colours. Her designs are also influenced by her love for Art-Deco, Orientalism and African Art.

Every single piece is made with great care and attention, which makes them special and unique.

To find out more about her, have a look at the website: http://www.formenteraladyandco.com/ or her Facebook page : https://www.facebook.com/formenteraladybisuteria

Tass Joies

The designers of Tass Joies find inspiration from many different places for their collection, and the breathtaking results can be seen in their jewellry creations that are shaped like islands, trees, dreams etc.   The unique jewellry is made of high-quality materials like silver, gold and is designed and made in Barcelona.

Alexia Grustan

Alexia Grustan brings old and used textiles back to life.

Alexia Grustan wanted to do something to symbolise a protest against the throwaway society we live in and give used clothes a second chance. With her ambition and her creativity she started to recycle used textiles and to create something new out of them.

All her exclusive items including bags, necklaces, bracelets, belts and accessories for shoes are recycled and handmade.

I felt in love with her designs and I totally support the idea of recycling. I myself recycled one necklace. You can find the post:  La Kukita’s style – Handmade Recycled Jewelry

La Juana

Nowadays if you want to find high-quality shoes that are still 100 per cent handmade, you have to search hard.  So it’s good that the Spanish brand La Juana offers handmade quality shoes. The story behind the brand is amazing as well as the designs themselves.

In 2010, when the crisis hit the country, many people lost their jobs and so did Juanvi, Alex and Natalia. To fight back against the crisis, the three friends had the brilliant idea to make high-quality shoes. They went to study and practice traditional shoemaking processes and their origins. Finally, the brand La Juana was born.

Since then, the shoes have been produced entirely in Spain, using high-quality materials. The designs are a mix of Mediterranean and Modern style and come in any given colour.

If you stop by their little workshop in Salzadella, Castellón and pick the color and the type of shoe you would like to have, they will make a personalised and exclusive shoe just for you.

Have a look at their online shop: http://www.lajuanashop.com/shop/ or become a fan on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/lajuanashop
