Hi Salim, your love for bags is no secret. What do you enjoy most about having so many bags?

I’m definitely a bagaholic. Having many bags to choose from makes me excited and more inspired to be creative when I mix and match my daily outfits.

How do you pick your bag on a daily basis?

I’ll settle my clothes first and next pick my shoes. The bag is my final step when choosing my daily outfit.

When you’re travelling, how do you decide what type of bags to pack and how many to bring along?

I usually bring a crossbody bag with me when I travel and one big size bag as part of my carry-on luggage. Normally, I will bring two to three bags, depending on the outfits I bring along for that trip.

How do you use your bags as a way of self-expression?

I choose bags in colour tones that I like, and can help me express my interests as well as some parts of my unique character.

What is your favourite type of bag?

I love handbags and clutches the most.

If you could pick one bag from our Winter 2018 collection to receive as a gift this holiday season, which one would it be?

I would love to have a lovely clutch to mix and match with my sparkling holiday and party outfits.

What bag trends you’re expecting to take off in 2019?

I think cylinder and box bags or bags that offer convenience will be the rising trends in 2019.
