The “Taylor Vanda” was the first model produced by our brand. It was 2018. I've developed several sketches and prototypes with simple, neat lines before this “baguette mini bag”.
I did some research. Talking with my friends- by this point you've probably discovered which is one of my favourite topics of conversation- and based on my own experience, I identified the following insights:
First: We needed a handbag that supported a long corporate agenda plus a –sometimes longer- well deserved free time with no time for boxes.
Second: The main, obvious option, a clutch, never had room enough for everything a girl needs for a night out: make up, my favorite lipstick, perfume, phone, keys, ID, and the long list of mandatory etceteras.
I wanted a balance between style and function; soft leather that supported the revised architecture and looked always perfect plus some accessories that this new clutch deserved.
After a long planning and prototyping time, the expected model was there. The very last details were closed by whatsapp calls during a nice dinner at NY, because of the different time zones with our committed manufacturer.
