Giveaway: Win a Beautiful Kores Bag
I've just been introduced to bag designer Kalina Molina who has kindly offered to give away a bag to 2 of our lucky readers. Simply head over to Kalina's website http://www.koresbags.com, have a look around and then come back here and tell me in the comments below which bag you would like to win. We'll draw two winners at random next Wednesday 1st June 2011. Simple!
Kalina Molina is a Brazilian designer who came to Sydney via NYC 5 years ago. With an eye for colour and design, Kalina had the brilliant idea to re-use the artwork skins from large outdoor billboards to make fashion forward, durable bags and computer covers. For the most part, these billboards are turned into landfill once an advertising campaign is over. Through this creative recycling concept, Kalina has produced a range of totally unique pieces, each of which represents a slice of urban history.
Kalina has worked for over a year developing and perfecting production techniques, and last month launched a full range of bags under the label Kores Bags, kores being the Portuguese word for colours. On offer at http://www.koresbags.com messenger bags, computer bags, iPad bags, wallets, shoulder bags and even some very cool evening clutches.
Pity I can't enter!!!
PS. Unless you are willing to pay for the International postage, it's only available to Australian readers...sorry!
