There’s a sense of pride in owning a luxury handbag, any fashionista will tell you. But how would it feel to own a luxury handbag that nobody else has?
This sartorial dream has become a reality thanks to VVA the Lifestyle Accessories company, founded by lead designer Sarah Haran. As a director of an AIM-listed cloud computing company, Sarah’s passion for fashion comes from knowing exactly what she, as a busy career woman, required from her handbag on a day to day basis to go from meetings to events without time to reorganise.
The ability to create your own bespoke product is something which is rarely seen, but with ever-growing popularity, is something which more brands should utilise. In 2012, sporting giants Nike launched a similar product, NikeID, which allowed customers to completely customise products bought from the website. At VVA you have the opportunity to express your own unique style and blend the formal with the stylish, as VVA leads this new surge of popularity with VVA Create.
Creating your own luxurious handbag has never been easier – it’s a simple three stage process. Primarily, customers are invited to choose the handbag they want, with choices spread across the tote bag, a shoulder bag and the satchel. The tote bag offers the most expansive range of colours and finishes, ranging from an effortlessly stylish shade of black to undeniably eye catching shades of fruitful saffron orange and picturesque indigo blue. For a more vintage feel, you can choose to have your tote emblazoned with a ‘croc’ pattern, available in classic black and chocolate brown.
The shoulder bag comes in simple shades to blend effortlessly into any outfit. Customers are invited to choose from a black, maroon, navy and racing green backdrop upon which to craft their dream bag. The satchel follows its prestigious predecessor’s colour scheme, with an additional shade of chocolate brown to lay the foundations of the piece.
The next step comes in the form of choosing a clutch bag, the key opportunity to add some colour and some character to your creation. Clutch bags from VVA come in a variety of pastel shades, ranging from a tasteful tan to a gentle baby pink calf to a shade of eye-catching neon yellow.
Why not spice your sartorial accessory up with a pattern? Dress your clutch bag up with the Scottish heritage of Tartan Red, or take a more nature-kissed floral design, with tasteful black weaves and cream houndstooth amongst others. If our fashion choices radiate our personality, let your wild side out with a plethora of animal prints, ranging from leopard to Dalmatian to giraffe and zebra. This safari style is sure to suit the most adventurous of fashionistas. Alternatively, VVA offer a collection of clutch designs they describe as “exotic”, which includes shades of moc snake pink, moc snake yellow and moc snake silver, as well as stingray splashes of colour in navy and red, or why not opt for a simple moc snake black matte? A tasteful contrast to any other shade of handbag.
Finally, and arguably the pièce de résistance, the decoration. VVA offer the finishing touches of their products in the forms of both tassels and pompoms. The tassels come in subtle shades of black, chocolate brown, indigo blue and a prestigious pallet of colours sure to complement any combination of handbag and clutch, as well as leopard and black and white animal print. Pompoms are available in a variety of shades, ranging from the colourful crayons of electric blue, lime green and neon yellow amongst others, as well as natural colourings and deeper shades of racing green and midnight blue.
