Unboxing: My New Aranaz Bag

jenniStyle Leave a Comment

Aranaz bags hold a special place in my heart. I had my first ever fashion collaboration with Amina Aranaz-Alunan in 2005: The limited edition Jenni Epperson for Aranaz “Ati-atihan” Collection (it was also the birth of “The Coconut Bag”). Amina was also my first assistant and we both worked with ABS-CBN Publishing’s Chalk magazine. She was practically born in the bag business as her family has been exporting them for many years now. I remember her selling bags to friends until she decided to expand her skills and left the country to study at the Istituto Marangoni in Milan, where she took up her masters in Accessories Design. She has since been designing bags for the company and has won several accessories design awards. I am so proud of her!

Last Summer, Aranaz bags debuted their Flamingo Bag and it was included in luxury fashion retailer site Moda Operandi‘s Curated Collection: La Dolce Vita, Resort 2015.

Since I stalk @ModaOperandi and @AranazPH on Instagram, the minute I saw the bag, I wanted it. Unfortunately, the beach bag sold out fast and I thought I missed out on it until a birthday package was delivered to my house last week.

Let’s open it!!!


The Flamingo Bag is made from straw, tinilak, leather, fabric lining, leather handles and proudly made in the Philippines.

This is perfect for my tropicana trip!

It is crazy beautiful!!! I love the pink flamingos!

I was able to view Aranaz’ Summer 2015 collection at the recently concluded Manila FAME and I’ve got my eye on another straw tote with palm leaves. It’s fabulous!

Thank you Amina, Rosanna and Tita Becky for my birthday gift! Can’t wait to get my hands on your Summer collection!
