With her first collection, the handbag designer Youngwon Kim has become renowned among accessory designers. All of the Danse Lente bags are fit to become iconic: the mini Johnny bucket bag with its versatile handle, the Phoebe with its notebook-like metallic spirals, or the classic and discreet cross-body messenger bag Spei. Nice takeoff.
The Danse Lente label recently made its great debuts on the designer bag stage. Led by South Korean designer based in London Youngwon Kim, the inventive and affordable handbag brand is making a difference in the world of It-bags. These new luxury handbags are based on unexpected shapes, high-end materials, original and sleek details; an immediate success. Phoebe, Johnny, Lorna and Lilou are the new names to remember.
Born in South Korea, Youngwon Kim graduated from the London College of Fashion with a master's degree in shoemaking. The London-based designer then chose to create handbags, an accessory offering more freedom in shapes and sizes. Her first collection, launched in Fall-Winter 2017, has already made her famous in the world of accessory designers.
