What better way to tell your best friends how much you love them than by designing a collection of bags named after them?
That's what Iranian-born designer, Amanda Navaian, a cosmetics brand manager who lives in Dubai, did by coming up with a line of eight luxurious python-skin bags and clutches, each name after the women closest to her: Mania, Hootan, Mikele, Yasmin, Nejla, Nouf, Layla and Fleur.
Handcrafted in Beirut, the bags are made from Indonesian diamond python skin and are exquisitely lined in suede.
Not only are they stylish but they are also practical...they have special compartments for your makeup and your Blackberries, and Mikele, Hootan and Yasmin are reversible! The bags have detachable chains which come in gold and silver and can be adjusted to different lengths.
Prices range from 2,200 Dhs to 3,500 Dhs (approximately the same in Qatari Riyals).
Amanda Navaian's collection, "Amanda Navai", will be coming out this month at Bloomingdale's Dubai.
