My Deepak Perwani Handbag

I had posted about the handbags from Deepak Perwani's S/S 2010 collection almost a year ago (click here to see that post) & everyone loved the handbags!

I loved the handbags so much that when I heard that my aunt from Pakistan was going to be in Dubai at the same time as me last summer, I thought I'd ask her to inquire about Deepak Perwani's handbags. My aunt got one of the bags from the collection & my uncle & aunt ended up giving me this handbag as a present.

I'll be honest, when I saw it in person I wasn't as thrilled because the handbags looked AMAZING in the pictures that I had seen online but in person it didn't look as good. It just looked like this fabric that I think (not completely sure) is pretty common in Pakistan with yellow, green, red, & black colours & patterns. Only difference was that the fabric was blinged out with sequins & inexpensive looking gems & stitched as a handbag.

The more I saw the bag though, the more it grew on me. I loved the shape & the way the coloured sequins & gems looked when the light hit them at different angles. It was also a unique handbag & I knew that I wouldn't find anything like it in Canada. It soon became a winner since I love things that are different, with a pop of colour (or colours in this case), & something that you wouldn't see people around you carry.

I've only taken this bag out twice in Dubai but with spring & sunshine around the corner, I'm hoping I'll get to add a little bit of colour to the scenery in Canada when I sport this colourful bag outside.

Very summary bag. I still need to find some scarf that is made of Saree fabric. It's too cold here in LA!

Actually, I felt the same way about DP's handbags; the round ones, the square ones, the ones with pompoms, all of them... absolutely loved the pictures of them until I actually went to buy one in Lahore. Majorly disappointed when I realized how common the fabric and embroidered details and materials were. Sure, collectively the sum of all its parts makes his bags beautiful, but I just could not let myself buy something that was trying too damn hard at being kitsch! After all the fabric and print is that of the usual 'handkerchief' fabric used to keep rotis warm!! Yes, that's right, a regular 'poona' or 'rahmaal' jazzed up with poor quality rhinestones and sequins did not live up to my expectations... :(
