We have been fans of Aranaz for a long time and we are always excited with every new collection they release. A trip to their store is always an inspiring experience - browsing through their pieces momentarily transports us to a tropical paradise even if we're in the middle of the metropolis.
Inside the Aranaz store in Powerplant Mall
We had the chance to sit down with sisters Amina and Rosanna for this month's Style Stories where they shared with us the story behind their latest collection called Tiki Seashell as well as insightful tips on going global.
Aside from beautifully crafted bags, Aranaz also has home and lifestyle items that bear the same luxe tropical vibe, which are perfect for a coastal-themed home.
Here are our team picks from Aranaz's latest collection and lifestyle items:
Joana: "I love the intricate details of this hand-carved and hand-painted clutch. Its solid structure gives it formality, which is then contrasted by its playful design perfect for dinner parties in the city and as well as beach weddings."
Kath: "I love the puka shell details of these bags. I'm attracted to the color yellow lately and this yellow Kaia can go with my yellow mules. These napkin rings and utensil holder remind me of 'secret' gardens I've visited. It's an easy way to add a pop of color to a table setting."
Sheila: "I love the shape of this wicker handbag. The drawstring closure allows for easy access and it can go with anything since its in a neutral color. The Anahaw plates and cup set exude luxury and local charm - something I can give to balikbayan relatives."
Jaz: "My work desk is in need of new implements - and these organizers can add interest to an otherwise boring corner. I'm always in need of a good notepad since I'm always listing down to-dos and this pineapple pad makes writing down tasks more like a game than a chore."
Michelle: "The contrast of pastel colors and dark wood details on this bucket bag is so striking. This pink trinket tray is a fun way to store my accessories - I just love the cute pineapple in the middle!"
