Add:78 Xinle Rd
Among the many fashion shops on Xinle Road, Heirloom stands out by offering customers a bespoke handbag service. Tiffany Wu and Lynn Lu, two young American Asian designers and good friends, have translated their modern attitudes and lifestyles into stylish handbags and leather accessories. And they promise to have just the bag for every customer - whether a career woman, a town socialite, a stylish weekend girl, or indeed all three.
Most of the designs are created with timeless silhouettes and functional touches, with one handbag versatile for different occasions, whether matching daily wear or for a fun evening out. From design to production, the design duo say they have every detail covered. Each bag is hand-made, with the average price around 2,500 yuan (US$392.24). Small leather accessories start from 200 yuan.
In addition, this season Heirloom has introduced a limited edition version of its Veronica bag in three candy color shades. Crafted from printed graphic leather, the top layer uses a hand-cutting technique to create a unique tromp-loi effect. The layering against the colorful hues brings an air of lightness from a must-have statement piece from the Heirloom collection, according to Wu and Lu. The Veronica - which costs 2,190 yuan - can be worn as a shoulder bag, a cross body and used as a party clutch.
