The Romance Reader is a collab with the Brussels brand, and good friend of Lies, JANUE. The bag stays true to our clean shapes and volumes while offering a fresh, organic and gentle touch. One one side it shows a canvas painting of an embrace, the other side is in full plum leather. The bag can be worn in multiple ways due to the soft leather and adjustable strap. A shoulder bag, a crossbody bag and a clutch in one.

The Romance Reader is a collector's items where leather and canvas blend together — materials that are intrinsically part of the world of Lies Mertens and JANUE. The Romance Reader portrays a framed fragment like a painting: the representation of an embrace, a symbol of connection and friendship between Lies Mertens and JANUE.
