Today’s désir de jour is brought to you by Benah, created by New Zealand born, Australian based designer Brenda Harvey. Her brand is a favourite of model Agness Deyn as her luxurious items are quickly becoming a staple on the New York fashion scene.
Benah prides itself on combining hard elements with soft elements, for example sharp prints on a soft silk scarf. When asked to describe the brand, Harvey states, “Benah is a person, it can be a place, it can be a mood. I don’t see it as a finite, tangible thing necessarily. This is exciting fashion to me, as the possibilities of what Benah can and will be should traverse traditional boundaries.”
With my love for red, I just couldn’t go past this Kodi Mini Leather Bag. Coming with shoulder strap, this simple but luxurious design will be a timeless piece for any woman’s wardrobe. This bag was described by Agness Deyn as “teeny but kind of fat and chubby so it’s even cuter than a baby koala”. How could you go past a bag with a description like that! Also available in black and olive, you can purchase this lovely bag from Benah’s online store for $470.
With all Benah products Australian made, she is definitely not only a designer to watch, but a designer worth supporting.
