The Making of the YY Cuzco Bags
As some of you might already know, last year I finally accomplished something that had been in my bucket list for a while - I went to Machu Picchu! My trip to Peru was a growing experience to say the least, not for nothing it's one of the seven wonders of the world.
If you want to read more about my experience in Cusco, you can read my blog, or you can see this post
with some of my favorite things!
I got to experience first hand the way the Natives live, their culture, their traditions, their art and folklore. One of the things that caught my eye the most were the handmade colorful textiles made by the indigenous community.
If you want to learn more about the history, design and production of the traditional textiles, I encourage you to visit www.threadsofperu.com
The vibrant colors and bold patterns were an absolute source of inspiration for my #YYCuzco collection. I wanted to blend tradition and luxury in order to deliver pieces that are worthy companions for a global citizen.
The focal point of the collection is the house-icon Mini Giovanna. This Limited Edition piece is made from artesanal Peruvian textiles, the embroidered panel features handcrafted beads and sequins that were exclusively dyed to match the color of the fabrics.
This makes the handmade #YYMiniGiovanna leather clutch unique are the rich colors and textures that pay homage to the Peruvian heritage.
As always, I love exploring with printed leathers, and I am proud to introduce the Mini Giovanna Cuzco Print. This leather clutch is a modern translation of tradition and folklore.
The #YYMiniScarlett is back! This contemporary leather clutch delivers an illusion of texture which was inspired by the traditional Peruvian patterns. Wear it cross-body style courtesy of its leather and chain strap.
This collection welcomes a new silhouette to #YYHandbags
, the Fabiana
Cuzco Printed Clutch . The #YYfabiana
is the embodiment of tradition with a modern twist representing a new version of the #YYMiniGiovanna. This stylish leather cross-body is easy to wear and comfortable to carry around.
Everyone's favorite tote, re-imagined. The #YYSarah is both stylish and daring. This is a great leather tote for girls who like to be effortless, but still want a little fun. Available in four earthy-colors!
Cuzco is a magic place with room for interpretation of its tradition, culture and folklore that captures the essence of the Lost City of the Incas.
