Happy to start with this one as it is Swiss-Brazilian, sustainable and ecological responsible. Who said that fashion and luxury cannot align with today’s responsibilities? REALTRUE stands for a business and its products where beauty and sustainability fuse and can ultimately be experienced with enthusiasm and a clear conscience. The Ipanema Midi is made of true Brazilian Pirarucu Fish leather, manufactured in Italy. Great style.

#7- The Large Lady Dior by Dior


Dior created a large supple Lady Dior bag in black luxury goatskin with Niki de Saint Phalle marquetry. This is how Katrien Verhassel from Your Style described the bag:

Practical: Large enough to fit your laptop in. It goes with all outfits, easy to combine, timeless, unique, it has character and is edgy. It also reminds me of Maria Grazia Chiuri, the first woman designer for the Dior house, so I would be ultra proud to wear this as it’s nearly a statement piece with historical meaning as well. Plus it pays hommage to Niki de Saint Phalle as well! So it has so much meaning” – Katrien Verhassel, Founder of Your Style.

This handbag is a large supple Lady Dior bag in black luxury goatskin with Niki de Saint Phalle marquetry. The jewellery in aged gold-tone metal. The wide multi-coloured embroidered canvas strap with black smooth calfskin details plays with medallions in aged silver-tone metal. You can carried in the hand, on the shoulder or across the body.
