We also get a great new update of the Phoebe Bis, a standout piece with its unique spiral top handle, not to mention the Josh, a newcomer with a more masculine feel.
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.
