Michino- a colorful calf skin leather handbag in multicolor stripes (Filed in Luxe, French touch, bags)

This is a mid range price brand and technically not really “luxe” but I have decided to file in it luxe anyway. The Japanese born designer Yasu Michino works and designs in Paris though he cops to a global-minded aesthetic. He has worked with the likes of Kanye West for West’s Yeezy collection and he has worked at several major brands in Paris before launching his line of handbags.In his own words “After my studies in art history and French literature at New York University and fashion design at Studio Berçot in Paris, I landed on my first job at Yves Saint Laurent. From my first day of my career until now, I have devoted all my time in designing leather goods. I spent five years at Givenchy, three years at Delvaux, two years at Nina Ricci and the list of brands goes on. In 2012, when I first became an independent designer, Kanye West was my first client and this collaboration continued for five years for his label, Yeezy. Today, I continue to work with prestigious French maisons as consultant specialized in leather goods.”
