You guys already know how much I love Analeena, right? Well, I just happened to be in Paris during their SS13 presentation at the Four Seasons, so, in between meetings and gazing at the Eiffel Tower, I ran through the city in heels to make sure I didn’t miss the presentation with Creative Director, Lina Hamed.
When I arrived at the plush suite, Lina greeted me with a warm welcome (we’ve been following each other through Instagram for months now) and a dazzling array of Analeena handbags, purses and luggage tags. Unsurprisingly, the SS13 collection is stunning: beautiful alligator/crocodile skins come in all shapes and sizes, from slouchy shoulder bags to angular framed clutches. The colours are insane – beyond rich – and one of my favourites was the purple degraded skin – so pretty, so spring. But my favourite bag is The Chancellor. It’s to die for and it’s top of my handbag wishlist. It comes in lots of different colours, but the special colour choice is the three-tone palette. Three colour blocks on one beautiful little bag. Perfection! The boxy shape means that this little treasure will take you easily from the office to a lunch meeting to dinner and cocktails.
Analeena is pure luxury – a brand that has been developed with highest quality materials and detailed craftwork. There are even diamonds on some of the logo hardware. Yes, actual, real, diamonds. (It that’s not luxury, I don’t know what is). Fans of Analeena include burlesque star, Dita von Teese, and the super stylish cast of cult TV show, Gossip Girl, have carried Analeena – proving that this is a brand that politely screams Manhattan chic. Leave your 2.55 and your Birkin at home – if you want to make a modern statement with a timeless handbag, choose Analeena.
