Samantha Hannah launches stylish bag range, using recycled materials


NEWS
Filed by Lucire staff/April 12, 2010/2.15




Lucire editor Samantha Hannah’s In the Pond collection of handbags, satchels and wallets for Konev launches this week, using fully recycled and some sustainable material.
   Samantha’s expertise and continued practice as a stylist and style consultant has resulted in a line that works with all body shapes. The bags are made from soft, high-quality leather and are lined with her signature red. The handbags and wallets are accented with fabulous splashes of vibrantly coloured fish skin. Most materials used were recycled from boxes and the storeroom within the factory.
   Practical features like the hidden cellphone and coin pocket at the back of the bags and feet on the bottom make it the perfect accessory for all modern women.
   The line fits with Lucire’s own ethos as a UNEP fashion industry partner, something which Samantha feels strongly about.
   The designs were based on the gardens at Versailles.
   ‘The elegant beauty of these gardens is timeless; sustainable. The Persian architect who designed it had remarkable vision and style. I wanted to draw on this in my collection,’ says Sam.
   Tanya Sooksombatisatian, Lucire’s head designer, photographed and created the branding for the bags, while the typeface used for Samantha’s brand is Lucire Text Bold, originally designed for this title.
