Turbans, head wraps I want it all for spring, I think I’m going to try to tackle executing this chic trend. It’s partly why I’m so in love with Belgian designer Annelies Timmermans Spring 10 campaign. This is not my first time featuring Timmermans, but the last was a very brief intro to her line of luxury leather bags. I was immediately taken by the styling of the S/S 10 shoot. For Spring she aptly uses light colors like acqua ,pearl & beige with a pop of red in a supple elephant print leather. Produced completely in Italy a variety of leathers & techniques are used this season, ecco tanned leather handles & hand dyeing are just a few that make the line even more desirable .
After doing a little research I learned that each bag in the spring collection is named after a mythological god(african,asian,& european origin) with some attribution of the god incorporated into the design. There are also 3 subcategories furious, nature & zeus that coincide with the various characteristics of the mythological gods. The Donar bag resembles a bolt of thunder visibly influenced by the Germanic god of thunder. One of my favorites bags in the line -the Marpe made from pvc reminds me of water, a fitting contrast to the predominant leather. Please visit the site to view the complete collection!
