Belen Echandia Take Me Away Weekender Bag


I recently extolled the virtues of the Balenciaga Giant Weekender and what a great travel bag it would make for any fashionista. If you prefer a more moderately priced bag which doesn't skimp on style or function, look no further than London-based accessories design house Belen Echandia. With their unique designs, quality Italian craftsmanship and bespoke services, Belen Echandia is a handbag lover's dream. One of my favorite pieces is the Take Me Away Weekender Bag.

Any bag that offers its' owner the convenience of multiple storage compartments while still encasing said belongings inside a sumptuous leather body deserves praise. The 'Tale Me Away' can be carried using dual leather top handles or over the shoulder with a detachable strap. The fuchsia-lined interior gives this 19.5 x 12.5 x 8 weekender a touch of old world charm while its' yummy chocolate exterior makes it versatile enough for any time of the year. The Belen Echandia Take Me Away Weekender Bag will become your most treasured travel companion, and its' one-of-a-kind look will ensure you won't get it mixed up with someone else's Samsonite.

Available via Belen Echandia's website for £450 or @ $889

    I own one of these bags and absolutely love it. Belen Echandia's design, leathers, manufacturing and customer service keep me coming back for more! I'd recommend the Weekender (larger) size if you're looking for enough space for a couple of days worth of stuff.
