BAG IT

India Today - - SIMPLY KOLKATA - SUEDE BY DEVINA JUNEJA

Ac­ces­sory de­signer Devina Juneja did not al­ways have an in­ter­est in fash­ion. It was only while work­ing with her hus­band in the fam­i­ly­owned leather ex­port house did she dis­cover her ap­ti­tude for de­sign. Trav­el­ling to trade fairs in Europe and UK gave her “a school­ing in de­sign­ing with leather”. Launched in 2013, Suede by Devina Juneja com­prises a line of clutches, satchels, totes, sling and shoul­der bags and also an ex­clu­sive jew­ellery line of neck­pieces.

Juneja uses a lot of tech­niques and weaves to pro­vide a unique tex­ture to her bags. Wo­ven leather, leather with metal­lic fin­ish, sur­face

em­bel­lish­ments, or om­bre dyed ma­te­rial are cut in unique pat­terns, hand sown and sprayed to craft in­ter­est­ing pieces. One of her most suc­cess­ful col­lec­tions was Au­tumn, a col­lec­tion that had hand-painted maple leaves in bright hues.
