City Pulse

The beginning of a new season can really only mean one thing…time to go shopping! If you’re searching for your next summer handbag, then look no further than Ananas Boutique. Inspired by the local traditional textile techniques and the indigenous materials of the Philippines, designer Jennifer Baum Lagdameo created a collection of beautiful handmade bags.

I’ve already begun shopping the site and I’m totally obsessed with the LouLou crossover bag in black. It’s classic and functional and perfect for warm weather days when you just want to sling your bag across your body and call it a day. I’m also planning on buying the Coco Clutch in navy blue, a great punch of color for spring. Oversized clutches are big this season and I love the wooden ring detail, it really creates a sort of safari inspiration and pairs perfectly with a light summer dress.

So if you’re already drooling all over your keyboard but not sure you want to splurge on one of these handmade bags, Ananas is offering a discount to all BN readers. Simply enter the code BEAUTYNEWSNYC20 at checkout to receive 20% off of all Spring 2009 merchandise for the entire month of April. While supplies last of course. If you’re in New York than you can head over to their NoLita location and bring this post with you or mention BeautyNews.
