Haute Style

Lavie has a progressive approach towards trends and fashion. The brand understands consumer tastes and has a number of choices to offer. The bags have a certain distinctness and care has been taken not to repeat the designs. 

The sophisticated look  

The designers at Lavie don’t think twice before admitting that it is passion and love for fashion that drives them to come up with distinct designs. The design team is constantly inspired by different styles around the world and even nature and they confess that they are never short of ideas, thanks to their market research team that keeps a tab of changing consumer needs. 

   “The design team is up to date on international fashion trends as they are constantly travelling around the world to understand the fashion forecast, trends, colour schemes, patterns and styles,” explains Sandeep Goenka, CEO, Bagzone Lifestyle Pvt Ltd.  

Lavie stocks an envious range of bags in attractive colours and designs. Their new campaign, ‘Fickle if Fun’ has managed to strike a note with the young consumers. “Lavie has a diverse collection of handbags that match every mood of a woman, ranging from satchels, totes, shoulder bags, hobos to box bags, slings, clutches, leather bags and laptop bags,” says Sandeep.  

The brand changes its collection according to the season. 

   “Every season, we introduce a unique range of multi-functional bags. For instance, backpack cum sling bag is a piece that gives you two styles in one bag which complements different outfits. Also the colours are very bright and vibrant which is just perfect for a college-goer. Besides, there are reversible bags that give four styles in one bag,” shares Sandeep. 

   The brand has designed bags for working women as well. “Their research findings have helped them come up with some wacky designs. The organiser bag is a must for women who are constantly on the go and need to carry around multiple devices and products. The bag comes with detachable compartments and can be used to organise the contents in a systematic manner,” says Sandeep. 

The designers of Lavie think that a bag is the ultimate accessory. “We understand that a woman’s wardrobe will be filled with bags which are for different occasions, mood and outfit. Besides, a bag contrasts the look and adds some zest to the wearer,” explains Sandeep. 

Sandeep notes that carrying the right bag completes and enhances one’s overall look. A bag can either make or break the look. 

   “Also people give a lot of importance to value worth before investing in a bag and women also want to be different from the clutter and hence want the best from the lot,” he sums up.
