Your destination to Modern, Unique, Urban Handbags!

Pursed, an initiative that has been in the making for some time! So many restless nights figuring out how to set up the boutique, what to name it and how to design it! It's an endless journey of improvements not near perfection (according to this girl's standards)! But I'm aiming for a fun and memorable experience for my clients because what you will own is a unique, high quality and cool bag!

A bit about me: I have been a fashion victim since early teens and believe fashion is intertwined with arts and design. Like many, I have a huge admiration for designers who are capable of translating their visions and stories into fashion statements.

With this in mind, Pursed was created to feature exquisite and unique handbags and purses made by independent designers from all over the world. Why? because we all crave freshness and uniqueness. What you can own are concepts to revolutionize your wardrobe with statement conversational pieces. You know, it's like when you go away on a vacation to a new city and are eager to score an original handbag or accessory. Well, that's precisely what I'm doing... to bring that foreign fashion adventure closer to you.

I work very closely with each designer to understand their vision and study their quality of workmanship. There are important things to consider when buying a handbag such as the quality of material used, the stitching, lining and details. Features like this determine the longevity of a purse and I pay careful attention to the details so you don't have to worry about them! As well, the designers care about their brand and client perception which are integral elements a talented designer must respect to reach the highest quality of handbag designs.

Relationship building is the pillar of Pursed Boutique vision. I want you as my client to be happy and proud to carry a bag featured by Pursed. I value your opinion, experience and your voice will be heard. So don't be shy to send me an email with feedback and requests.. I would love to hear from you.

2018 Handbag Trend Report

This is definitely the year of handbags! Designers across the globe are realizing the need for diversity, originality and personal style, something we at Pursed Boutique strive for. Each year and every season, we review and analyze the trends as seen on the runway and fashion magazine to stock up on the latest, most desirable handbags styles.

This year, one can expect to see material such as straw and wicker take a stronger presence in the retail market. Round and Box handbags as well maintain a strong fashion hold. Floral appliques, patches and cartoon prints are fun and feminine options to accessorize and embellish a handbag. Strange shaped handbags are eye catching statement handbags to carry in your next social gala and event.

Designers like Calvin Klein, Tom Ford, Prada, Ulla Johnson and more have adopted these elements in their 2018 handbag styles. Here are some of the 2018 styles spotted on the catwalks in Milan, Paris NY and London.
