These Eye-Catching Euro-Mediterranean-Inspired Bags Are Finally In Manila



The rebellious and feminine blend of Italian and Portuguese craftsmanship has arrived in Manila to boldly accessorize the empowered Filipina women. 

Celebrating women everyday, one fine bag at a time, Euro-Mediterranean-based Colombian designer, Marie De La Roche shapes her aesthetic references from where her studio is located, as well as of her French roots. In her aim to continuously transport excellent quality craftsmanship with couture-inspired touches to the global women, for the very first time, she has finally brought these eye-catching bags to the Philippines.

The Marie De La Roche collection features minimally-designed sleek bags made with Italian nappa leather, gold finish details, and detachable strap to suit both casual and corporate women. These bags have functions according to your needs—with its unique bottle-shape and bold snap magnet opening, the Sophia bag can store all your necessities and go-tos while serving as an added accessory to your whole look. Simply picture how the Sophia bags can standout against monochromatic dressing. Exquisite.

For the on-the-go women who prefers a flexible bag, the Octavio certainly complements them well. This three-way bag comes with invisible magnets and studded bottom that can turn into a purse, a backpack, and a sling bag. Its handle is detachable, too. These multi-functional bags look good even when worn with a basic tee and denim.

Then there are the ladies who just have to store all of their essentials in one spacious bag, and the Blanket Midi totally understands that need. Inspired by art deco curves, this fab bag can perfectly fit your 13-inch laptop. Meanwhile, you can also pick up the Blanket Mini, a smaller version of the retro-inspired bag with a leather tag. Both the Blanket bags are statement pieces for dressy ensembles.

While the Sophia bag is available in carmine red, the Octavio, Blanket Midi, and Blanket Mini bag come in two minimal colors—Evening (black) and Nite (steel blue).

You can shop Marie De La Roche bags at LANAI, The Alley, Makati City. For more information on Marie De La Roche, check their Facebook and Instagram accounts @mariedelaroche.ph.
