This girlie space, full of bright colors, is an ideal background for the bags and fashion accessories Evi and Elizabeth design. Sandals are a must for the summer months, and also hair accessories, which are decorated with pop and kitsch details. Evi prefers a retro look for her ultra chic handbags, using metal chains and frames, and an eclectic choice of original fabrics. The jewels she designs are romantic vintage, combining granny’s crochet with a cool contemporary elegance, or the latest trend in fabric covered chunky bracelets.
