FROM THE ANCIENT TRADES
Bonia takes us on a journey through the Silk Route, shedding a spotlight on the travels made by merchants from the Far East, the trade of arts and treasures, and how it has transformed fashion creatives. Taking inspiration from it, Bonia releases an exquisite range for its Spring/Summer 2018 collection, using one of the route’s most expensive trade commodities, precious pearls. Incorporating them into the designs along the edges of the bags, the ‘Lexington Pearla’ (a lightweight shoulder bag silhouette derived from the iconic Lexington collection), the ‘Nitza Pearla’ (a crossbody bag suitable for women on the go) and the ‘Pearla’ wallets all embody purity, femininity and royalty with just a glance! If we had to make a choice, our favourite would have to be the ‘Nitza Pearla’ in red because not only does it pack a punch, but the elongated strap makes it extremely effortless to carry when we’re always on the move.
