Swedish Design Made in Italy: Bags and Accessories by Christina Christersdotter

Behind the newly launched bag and accessory label CHRISTINA CHRISTERSDOTTER stands Anna Ellingsen Barron and Christina de Mercado, whom with their two different backgrounds, share a strong and well established feel for stylistically pure design and quality.

The concept was created when they came to the realization that there was a demand, but still a gap in the Swedish market for a well-crafted quality bag for the modern woman.  CCD has the ambition to create a modern feel without compromising in quality and practicality.

The exclusive bags are being handmade in Florence, Italy, out of superb Italian leathers, in one of the premier factories. This combined with Swedish clean, modern design creates a luxury bag beyond the norm.

The AW2012 collection consists of four styles in different leathers and tone combinations. The idea is for this first collection to be a taste of what to come.  In the spring 2013 they will expand with new products such as clutches, beauty cases and computer cases. All made to match the design of the bags and to fulfil the requisites for functionality.

As the designers put it themselves: “Bags should be able to be worn daily, through a design that is almost timeless, but still speaks for whom you are. Today the bag is filled with important things that are part of your life:  Work, children and social needs. These needs we have taken in to consideration, as its is effecting our daily life.”
