Hand-painted beach bags to launch at Dubai pop-up
18 October, 2016
Personalised attire and accessories are becoming increasingly popular, with an onslaught of everything from embroidered denims to acrylic clutches, emblazoned with names, initials or slogans. The craze applies to beach bags too, which are especially relevant in the UAE, where women tend to dress up just for a trip to the beach or pool. UK-based pop artist Boyarde has tapped into the trend, and is launching her debut collection of hand-painted beach bags at the Beach Boutique pop-up next week in Dubai. Her bags are sustainably-made in Morocco from palm leaves and leather straps, and feature iconic figures such as Frida Khalo and Carmen Miranda, as well as festive fruits like pineapples and watermelons. For an extra touch of exclusivity, clients can have their initials painted onto the bags.
