H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection

I usually highly anticipate H&M’s designer collaborations, but this year, the H&M Conscious Exclusive collection is doing the job, keeping everyone around the world on their tip toes! Inspired by flamenco and bohemia, featuring embellishments, feminine silhouette and contrasting masculine details. Each piece is incredibly feminine, yet very powerful. I’m absolutely obsessed! The eco-fashion line is the brainchild of the Swedish retailer and eco-design think tank Ever Manifesto. The collection will hit stores on April 10, and will be available in 150 stores worldwide, including both H&M stores at the avenues. It will include items made of organic leather and silk, along with other sustainable materials. Make sure to drop by and get your hands on your favorite pieces. I know I will!

My Sheena Sujan Barclay Tote

As one of the world’s most exclusive purveyors of luxury leather handbags and accessories, Sheena Sujan’s tradition of excellence shines through. Sheena Sujan, announced the release of her first collection last September 2013 in Los Angeles. Her leather goods are crafted in the same Italian province where the top global luxury brands have produced their accessories since the early 1900’s. Every Sheena Sujan design is constructed by expert artisans and masterfully cut and stitched together by hand, using only the finest Italian leathers and exotic skins. This heritage equates to an exquisite collection of simplistic-timeless elegance.

I was so excited and lucky to be contacted by the designer, Sheena Sujan, herself, offering me one of her infamous Barclay totes in a color of my choice. I chose the camel brown, sent her office my shipping address, and waited.

Few days after, I got a package delivered my the door, and I couldn’t wait to open it. I haven’t been familiar with the brand earlier to my communication with their team, however, with a bit of google, I was able to find amazing reviews on the quality and the designs. And I was not disappointed. The bag came in a beautiful black satin pouch with the Sheena Sujan emblem stamped on it in deep gold. The leather of the bag is clear to be of top-notch, fine skin, and the interior is made of what looks like gorgeous red chamoi.

The details of the bag were of pure classic delicacy. The Sheena Sujan emblem, is the first little thing that caught my eyes while I unwrapped the tote. And I found the story behind that powerful emblem; The Sheena Sujan emblem is fabled in ancient history as a creature of regal beauty. The two-headed tiger stands strong; she’s the master of her own destiny, a legend in both the ancient and modern world. Her majesty and exclusivity foretell tales of royalty and might. A true representation of such a strong coming brand.

I definitely wore the bag out the same night it arrived to its new home. It was a 9 degrees kind of freezing-cold night, so I styled it casually with my denim, and a salmon pink coat that covered a hundred layers under. I will be wearing out a lot and will share with you guys the different looks through my instagram page.
