Welcome to the Urban Savannah – Season Premiere Party with Daniella Lehavi
Are you in search of the perfect handbag? Don’t look any further: what’s Hermès for France is Daniella Lehavi for Israel. The designer introduced her new limited edition collection with a huge fashion bash, collaborating with the performers of the Israeli Opera.
Each season, Daniella Lehavi aspires to create the material and texture that would lead her collection, and this season she chose to create a unique capsule collection dedicated to the wild and textural animal prints.
This limited edition collection of bags and accessories compliments her winter collection, and is based on the most iconic shapes of Daniella Lehavi – styles which became classics of the brand – made with haircalf texture and prints.
The capsule collection was designed in a minimalist, graphic look, allowing the unique materials to take the center stage.
The collection celebrates one of the biggest trends of winter 2014 with an ensemble of wild prints such as leopard and zebra, created with a personal yet contemporary interpretation, and in all of the season’s must colors: Black with Camel , along with a dramatic use of Burgundy red. Even the cupcakes were “dressed” as wild animals.
While the DJ was playing I got to know more about the Swiss-born designer: Daniella Lehavi pioneered the concept of the designer handbag in Israel when she opened her studio in 1990.
Lehavi’s first, modest collection included only ten bags; since then, her collections not only have grown to include wallets, belts and shoes, but her name has come to symbolize elegant, custom-made accessories crafted from the highest-quality materials.
Fashionable Israelis have long swooned over Lehavi’s products, which are chic and modern, and effortlessly merge form and function.
Lehavi is especially attentive to detail in her designs and carefully considers the division of compartments, length of straps and placement of zippers to ensure maximum comfort and convenience.
Her Tel Aviv boutiques feature minimalist decor that allow the wares to stand out, and the outgoing staff is always happy to help you choose just the right accessory to spruce up your wardrobe.
The party was wonderful, hosting many Israeli celebrities, bloggers, stylists, models, and local artists. It was really fun to see how all these people stick together when it comes to celebrating a designer the whole Israeli fashion scene loves and appreciates.
Stay tuned, because next week we’ll visit a luxury tailor shop at Tel Aviv’s posh HaMedina square. Meanwhile follow me on Facebook for daily updates!
