When I was younger, I was drawn to things that can immediately catch attention. Things that are current and trendy. Shempre what’s new is mostly what’s eye catching. But as I grow older (shucks, now I feel old) my taste and style have become more simple. Less is more, simplicity is beauty. Ganyang levels na.
Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication. To better put it, “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance”. Coca Chanel was right. This I have come to know by now. Speaking of simple, I’ve discovered a brand who believes that making great leather handbags starts with a luxury approach to materials and continuous thoughtful design that balances style and functionality. Meet Rabeanco.
RABEANCO was born in Hong Kong in 2002 out of its founders’ passion for leather craftsmanship and their desire to make luxury accessories widely accessible. It evolved from the foundations of a small family-run business that, since the early 1980s, had been sourcing fine leather accessories from Italy to supply local fashion boutiques.
Leather lovers like me, brace yourselves. Once you enter a Rabeanco store, the luxurious & intoxicating smell of leather is sure to captivate you. Leading you deeper inside the store as you marvel all the glorious & beautiful bags patiently sitting, waiting for you.
Warning: bag porn. You’re very welcome. 😉
Like a kid in a candy store, I couldn’t contain myself and the excitement I felt seeing all these pretty things. How oh who can you not like them?
Reportorial Php 20,500. This satchel bag reminds me much of the coveted Proenza Schouler PS1 for half the price.
Bonham Php 15,500 (large) & Php 13, 500 (medium)
Bonham (small) Php 9,500. I wanted to get this bag but the OC me disliked the black long strap. I wish they made the strap similar to the bag color, I would’ve gotten one right away. Givenchy Pandora is that you?
Butterfly Satchel in Red A Php 16,500. Zippered body that makes the bag expandable. The new version of this bag has a combination strap made of leather and chain.
Chain bags at Php 14,500. Wear it two ways: double strap or single strap.
Hobo bags ranging from Php 10,500, Php 12,500, Php 13,500 and Php 15,500.
Mara (large) Php 13,500 and Luna (small) Php 11,500. It comes with a long strap and removable interior pouch.
The Masparo tote comes with a removable interior pouch and mini pocket pouch. This is way better than a LV Neverfull & it only costs a fraction of its price.
Fabianna Php 12,500. Structed doctor’s-like bag in saffiano leather. This comes with a long strap so you can definitely wear it two ways.
Clutch/pouch bags that have removable straps.
Move over Chanel, I got my eye on this lovely green saffiano chained bag.
While I gave myself an ultimatum to finish scouting Rabeanco for thirty minutes, I failed. I was at the store for more than an hour. This led me to leave Trinoma during rush hour, coupled by heavy rain which got me stuck on the road with gutter-deep flood. Was it worth it? Definitely! I can’t wait to show you what I got. Thank you Rabeanco for the lovely birthday treat! 🙂
