Consciously designed handbags
We present the newest addition to our collection: Astrid. With its semicircle shape, Astrid is a remarkable and elegant shoulder bag. We'd love to tell you the story behind this refreshing new design and show all its features & colours in person.
Exclusively at our flagship store in Antwerp as of today 23.09.2021 – Online release 29.09.2021.
Meet Astrid Haerens: a Belgian writer and poët, and the inspiration for our newest spacious crossbody bag.
“I read and write to understand the world and my place within. But also to find comfort in the beauty of language. Poetry is, for me, a thickened form of beauty. I love to combine the rational and the intuitive when writing.”
As a fervent reader, she regularly heads down to the park with one of her books. So Lies decided to design a bag that could easily fit a book alongside her other belongings.
As a future-oriented brand, sustainablility is at the heart of our practice. We are very much aware of the environmental impact of our industry and commit ourselves to proving things can be done differently. A circular approach and continuous research regarding the next green solutions, are part of our daily scope.
