It’s been a while I wanted to write a block about Korean made bags. Right now in my collection I have about 5 different bags i have bought in Korea, and I love them all. Why to pay attention to bags in Korea here are few reasons
All the bags i buy are made of genuine leather, the leather is very good quality, so bags are usually very stable and last for a long time.
It been not once when I have been stopped in the streets or in the mall, asking about my bags, they wanted to know what brand it is and where i got it from. It is all because of interesting style and forms bags usually are.
All the back i have a very practical, they have low and long handles and it is very comfortable to carry around.
I will mentioned few brands that design bags, all those companies are different, has own style yest i love them all, and few of them i already use. Plus i will give you few shopping tips.
My first ever purchased bag was a Couronne Bag
this bag has been used in a drama Scent of a Woman with Kim Su Ah
Now I got in total three bags from this brand
1. Stephanie – its big, very beautiful a bit heavy but the quality is good. I was using this bag for 5 years non stop, and now it had been put to rest. I think I would go for another same bag, if i have extra cash. This bag look great with office wear and with casual look. Love it and still want it.
2. Heather – it s a smaller bag but very specious inside. I still own this bag and taking it out on a very very rear occasion.
3. Clutch made of very soft leather, it is now a everyday use bag for me, i can not imagine my life with out it.
And the bag i am eying right now
its men’s bag, but i think ti will be a great addition for my airport fashion style 🙂 and day to day use as well. Plus i dont have a white bag.
Next brand i want to tell you about is Louiz Quatorze
I have only one bag of this brad and this bag had been used in a drama Lie to Me
I love this bag because the leather is soft the quality is great and even though it is very small it can be very accommodating. Looks great with summer dress and just with jeans and white t shirt. When i was getting that bag i was already confused with so many nice bags in the store and by that time i had already few big bags of other brand so i have decided to go for a small bag and with the color I haven’t own
One of my first bag as well was a Bean Pole bag as well Korean made brand.
I think everyone knows with brand, Wentford Miller was once a model for this brand, now its Suzy and KIm Soo Hyun
I don’t know why i loved it but once i saw it back in 2011 i thought it was my must have item from Korea because it was something nobody had that time, plus it had matching wallet as well. again the quality and the leather is good, last year when i was in Korea i went to check the shop again but i did not find anything that caught my eye, but still i am looking forward for a fresh collection
Rouge and Lunge
You will know this brand if you watched drama YOU WHO CAME FROM ANOTHER STAR
the main model of this brand Ji Hyun Jun
When I the bags of this brand for the first time, it was before it was used in the drama, i instantly like the collection, that time they had only few bags but i love the style, it was something between unisex and sexy 🙂
My first choice was this bag
Back then this was something I wanted in a design and in the size, but then was convinced by my sister to go for another brand. I did regretted for not getting it but pain has eventually disappeared. Next year i went straight to their store before checking any other brands and my eyes were on this bag
This bag was on my shoulders for 30 minutes but it did not convinced me for a purchased I was not comfortable with the shoulder stripe on this bag, I love shoulder bags with the long stripes but the hooks for the stripes had been places so, that wen you need to open the bag your hand will be tangled.
and as well i eyed this bag too but it was not available that time in a store so till now I end up with no bags from this brand
Most of the Moldir collection is more oriented for yung generation but even me could not resist from the interesting designs of the backpacks
This is my Moldir back pack that had all possible eyes on it every time i travel with it.
It may look a bid over sized and big but it actually thiner then you think and thanks to so many pockets it is very useful.
forgot to tell you that this bags were designed by Kin Jae Joong aka Hero aka my Love 🙂
so another bag i want so much from Moldir is Sofiano White large but it is currently out of stoke and i am crying because i want it so much.
Again i want to remind you that all those bags are made of Geniun Leather and have great quality. you will use them and use them they are very well made and plus interesting designs, something you will not meet easily in Europe or in America.
Here are the list of other Korean brands that design bags
Lover cat, Metrocity, Sanovi, Bruno Magli, Decer, You can as well google then and get more information.
Now I want to share with you a secret i have learned about MCM bags
I have 3 MCM bags with me and all of them I have purchased in Korea why?
MCM bags are manufactured in Korea, that’s why they are cheaper much cheaper in Korea, plus you can find a unique designed of this brand that can be sold only in Asian market, so if you live in any other part of this world you wont be able to get them in a store.
If you have questions you want to ask me about those brands or nags please feel free to comment i will be happy to share the information with you
