Amanqi Accessories: The Sadafa Afrique Mon Amour Collection


 

Fashion is all about self-representation. It’s something that helps create our distinct identities, something that allows us to share our convictions, our culture even, with the entire world. Contemporary luxury label SADAFA epitomises this definition of fashion through their unique curation of minaudières; depicting the Egyptian culture. The Egyptian handbag label, founded by designer Dina El Sheikh in 2016, has caught our attention due to its chic bags made out of mother-of-pearl (Are images of your mother’s jewellery box conjuring up in your mind already?).

 

There is definitely something about SADAFA’s classic minaudières that rekindle the aura of femininity and elegance.

 

Keeping intact their cultural values, traditional blend and creativity, SADAFA has launched their latest capsule collection- ‘Afrique Mon Amour’ – which was released for the Autumn/Winter ’18 season. The designer relied on vibrant earthy colours along with geometrical and tribal patterns for embellishing the minaudière designed especially for the contemporary taste.

The inspiration for this enigmatic collection was based on the idea of paying homage to Cote d’Ivore – the adopted hometown of Dina. These elegant minaudieres are made of mother-of-pearl, which is a smooth shining iridescent substance made from the inner lining of mollusc shells. The varieties of shells used and the multiple layering technique reflects the lights off of the minaudières therefore reflecting an assortment of different colours when viewed from different angles. These minaudières are very versatile as they can be used for both formal #OOTDs and a crazy night-out due to its intricate detailing and the subtle shine that adds to its oomph factor.

The solid boxed shaped detailed minaudières in their compact sizes, with a detachable chain (that can act as a shoulder strap), offer style along with functionality (you don’t have to worry about losing your lipstick or your phone). There is definitely something about SADAFA’s classic minaudières that rekindle the aura of femininity and elegance, making it a style statement and a ‘must-have’ for your exclusive wardrobes.
