Be it a clutch for a night out on the town or a functional tote for all your work documents, style is never lacking in Haney: Exquisite Lifestyle Leather Bags. By Lina Lewis.
In the name of love for all things beautiful, Haney Hadad creates arm candies.
And where does the former MTV VJ draw her inspiration from?
Fuelled by her longstanding handbag obsession, she sees ideas in the colours of nature, in jewellery, in the clothes people wear.
‘Sometimes even my children’s toys inspire me,’ says the Australia-based mother of two.
Haney reveals how she often looks at a bag and sees ways she can improve it.
‘Maybe make the bag in a different size, change the length of the handle or add a compartment,’ she adds.
The Haney: Exquisite Lifestyle Leather Bags – priced between S$100 and S$300 – can be viewed on Facebook. All the bags are made of genuine Italian leather and lined with suede.
Haney’s creations are versatile, vibrant and carry interesting details, setting themselves apart from the generic bags in the market.
Just take a look at Haney’s first clutch, the Aaliyah. Other than boasting a high-quality sheepskin leather, tassels adorned with gold studs give an edge to the dainty piece.
For those who hanker for something bold and beautiful, the Colour Explosion Collection 2012 stops traffic with bold hues from Fiery Red to Emerald Green to Electric Blue.
Without compromising on style, the Haney bags are functional – the sizeable totes make a fashionable work bag on weekdays and can double up as a shopping bag at weekends.
The latest addition to join the Haney line is the Nina Bag. Priced at S$275, this versatile bag can be carried in three different ways – as a shoulder bag, as a sling bag or as a maxi clutch.
Psst! Here’s some inside information…
Haney: Exquisite Lifestyle Leather Bags has another exciting piece in store.
Over the next two months, it will be introducing the Hana Bag. The S$285 bag comes with four compartments, a zippered pocket on the back and an 8-inch handle drop.
No, we do not have a picture of the Hana Bag yet but hey, good things are worth waiting for.
