CeeCode Handbags now available in Qatar!

I'm proud to announce that Lebanese handbag label CeeCode is now available in Qatar! CeeCode was launched last week in Salam Department Store here in Doha.

CeeCode is the brainchild of Lebanese designer Cynthia Pennikian, who started off making handbags as a hobby, and as is the case with most of the world's most talented designers, her hobby turned into a fashion empire.

Cynthia studied advertising and marketing before she majored in fashion, discovering that her major passion lay with handbags and accessories. She launched her first handbag collection in February 2011 and since then her bags have made it to Lebanon, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and now Qatar.

What's great about CeeCode is that there are bags to suit every occasion, every outfit and every woman. Cynthia designs clutches, classic leather handbags and totes, chain bags, beach bags and my personal favorite, her round handbags. There's everything from the classic and chic to the funky and urban.

This summer, get your hands on one of her neon hued beach bags, perfect for your summer vacation, or her cool plate clutches and chain bags, which are made with lookalike car plates.

Prices start from 750 Dhs.

Where to get your CeeCode bag:


Salam Department Store, West Bay, Doha


Galleries Lafayette, Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa Area, Dubai
Valleydez, Wafi Mall, Dubai
Valleydez, Sunset Mall,  Jumeirah Road, Dubai
