My love of a great handbag is hardly a secret - two of my proudest possessions are the designer purses I've managed to save up to buy. But the more time passes and perhaps, too, the more I see same few fetish bags crowd social media sites, I come to realise that the world is full of Chanel 2.55s and Proenza Schouler PS 11s. For my money, I would much rather have a handbag that is unique and crafted with as much skill as love - in my dreams, that crafting is done by hand. But not just in my dreams anymore; not since I discovered Angel Reinares. The brand has been handmaking luxury leather goods in Spain since 1965. The Reinares family has a three-generation heritage of leather craftsmanship that is clearly visible in their beautiful and buttery soft creations. My bag, the very first one in North America, has been with me every day since it arrived - it's soft but sturdy, fits everything including my pair of emergency ballet flats and, well, it just looks beautiful. I hate putting it in the cupboard at work because I feel like it should always be on display, receiving the admiration is to richly deserves. Angel Reinares is officially launching in North America in the coming weeks and I just know you're all going to love their collection as much as I do.
