Bag the Prosperity
A new bag or wallet with a meaning ful design might be just what you need to kick-start an auspicious year.
In perfect time for Chinese New Year, Tessere introduces its latest Hazel range. Tessere prides itself on crafting headturning pieces with diverse cultural influences, and its new range reflects this. The Hazel tote and long wallet carry a touch of Chinese tradition in the oriental- style “endless woven knot” design on the bag’s front handle tabs and the wallet’s clasp. What better way to ring in an auspicious year than with new accessories that bear images of Chinese knots? These knots symbolise prosperity, longevity and endless abundance. The fuchsia trimmings and curves of the front handle tabs on the bag are also reminiscent of the petals of Chinese peonies in bloom.
Pair the jade green tote with a glamorous pink cheongsam ( if you like, you can look for a dress in the same shade of pink as the knot detail on the bag and wallet), or with your trusty LBD to infuse your favourite getup with a dose of oriental charm and make the most of the season’s traditions in style.
The tote and wallet are made of cow leather, and are available in jade green and onyx black at leading department stores.
