AW'17 The Nubian Pharaoh / Classic Minaudiére

The Nubian Pharaoh Collection

A bag holds a woman’s world, but what if it holds the essence of a woman’s roots?

Nubian women are known for their interesting jewelry and their warm smiles. Additionally, one of the main pillars of Nubian culture—one of ancient Africa’s earliest civilizations—is color. In this collection, Okhtein channels Islamic roots through the silhouette of the bags, and Nubian and African roots, symbolized through the abstracted faces on the bags.

“Each bag is representative of two worlds colliding,” said designer Abdel Raouf, “we were very inspired by African/Nubian rope necklaces and nose rings.”

Classic Minaudiére Collection

Inspired by Islamic Plant Ornaments, the Palmette Flower Minaudière is revived through minimalistic designs brought to life in a form of a brass minaudière. Handmade by skilled leather and brass artisans, every bag tells a unique story.
