THE LOCAL HERO
We’ve always had a soft spot for L’Afshar’s acrylic box bags created by the Dubai-based designer. And now we know we were on to a good thing, as they’ve been picked up by the sartorial style mavens over at Net-a-Porter and were stocked on the site at the end of last year. “I’ve always believed that you should start with something small and hit the nail on the head with one strong product,” confesses the Iranian designer. Along with the highly covetable acrylic pieces, she’s ventured into leather too, with a mock-croc, top-handle style that satisfies all our mini-bag needs.
