So...this is how I casually 'land' at my office parking lot, as everyone complains that I am not such a great driver I decided it would be safer to fly to work ;) Of course...I need a handbag which can endure the heights ;)
Finally I have drawn a winner of Picard leather handbag giveaway (since we couldn't decide for the best outfit subjectively from your comments, as all were really cool and thank you for that, we choose to run participants emails through random.org and draw one lucky winner) who ended up being Dunja T. from Zagreb. Congrats Dunja!
Then I decided to further investigate the historical German leather goods brand - Picard to really learn what they are all about. As some of you might remember, from my previous collaborations with Picard brand I have gotten a wonderful pink passport leather case from them. What I particularly remember about receiving it was the cute little box with tissue paper and guarantee which came with it (I love when brands pay attention to details and packaging) as well as the soft leather feel when I opened it. This first impression formed a certain opinion with me of Picard as a brand overall.
Check out this video and listen to what brand is all about. For me personally, it was so.... charmingly - German. :)
Next, I checked out what is new that Picard prepared for Fall/Winter 13' season and I found these cook advertorial images which Jens Ihken produced the new Picard bags campaign in Barcelona. Both photographer and model played with fire and balanced on top of the roofs at dizzying heights. I like how Picard's men's bags are really manly hehe! No pouches please! :)
Picard also has a pretty cool iPhone app where you can virtually try out and see which handbag is right for you.
Now in Picard store in Zagreb Croatia you can already find new Fall/Winter 13' pieces! My favorite new handbags are below. Isn't the blue bucket bag just fabulous? :)
Taylor - 2079 kn.
Amazonas - price upon request
Most of you already know, but it doesn't hurt to repeat! Picard has a store in Zagreb as well and those of you who went there or contacted with the store manager wrote back to me that he is quite a charming gentleman so I guess it's worth to go at least to peak in a bit ;) The address of Picard Croatia store is Nikole Tesle 9 in Zagreb but you can also contact them on Facebook.
