Wearing Stripes with my House of Sheens – Impavido Clutch

Experimenting with accessories is always so much fun. Statement pieces, in particular can completely transform your look and make it more unique. For this reason, I have always found it exciting to discover new brands around me. I recently discovered House of Sheens, while I was browsing through Instagram. I instantly fell in love with the gorgeous exotic skin leather bags. Each design was just so bold and striking. I knew at that point, that I had to have one of these bags one day.

A few months later I was fortunate enough to meet Shireena, the designer behind House of SheensWe had a wonderful conversation discussing our passion for handbags, fashion and of course her brand. House of Sheens is a Singapore based luxury fashion brand that creates high quality exotic leather bags. The brand is known for combining bold colours and prints together to create stunning pieces that add character to any outfit. Shireena creates bags for the strong independent woman, who isn’t afraid to show her personality. Moreover through her designs she aims to empower women by giving them confidence and style. Each bag has its own story, designed with passion and inspiration. Shireena is inspired the most by living in Asia and her travels through the region.

One of things that I personally love about the brand is that each bag is unique and a true collectors item. Firstly, the bags are hand crafted by regional artisans within South East Asia. Moreover, Shireena only produces one or two pieces per colour in a particular style. As a customer, I find this so satisfying because I know that my bag is one of a kind and truly special. Additionally, the bags are created using the most highest quality leather. Shireena designs her bags using different exotic skins. The leather she uses include python, cobra, water snake and Italian calf leather. Therefore, the quality of the bags puts House of Sheens on par with the international Designer Brands. House of Sheens currently has seven different collections. I fell in love with each and every one when I saw them in the store.

Today, I want to introduce you to the XL Impavido Clutch in Blue. The clutch is part of the Impavido collection (Impavido means to be fearless in Italian). This collection comprises of exotic-coloured python skin clutches that are adorned with a spider embellishment. Shireena added the spider embellishment to inspire women to be bold and overcome their fears. The clutch is surprisingly very roomy and is perfect to carry your essentials. It is a true statement piece, that would work with any outfit and stand out as the winner.

I choose to style my XL Impavido Clutch against Blue and White Stripes.  At the moment, this Top is a wardrobe staple for me, it’s called the Madeline Bow Tie Striped top from Pomelo Fashion. You can style this Top is so many different ways. I have worn it casually with jeans and culottes, or dressed it up. My Pleated Silver Skirt complemented both the Top and Clutch perfectly for this look. But my XL Impavido clutch was the statement piece, that stood out and looked beautiful.

The XL Impavido Clutch is retailing for $500.00. You can shop the collection at the House of Sheens store located at 115 Amoy Street in Singapore or shop online at House of Sheens.
