Collection Spotlight: Lena Erziak SS17

With an international upbringing and two creative parents, it wasn’t a hard guess that Leona and Hanna Erziak were too, going to embark on a design career. However, before they launched a handbag line, each sister went out into the world and got a taste for business, by working as real estate developers. It was at the prime of their realty careers that the artistic gene kicked in and the girls joined forces.

Launching a successful handbag label, Lena Erziak, in 2009, the accessories brand went global with their celebrity and press following. Fast forward a few years and in order to regroup the sister’s duo took a two-year hiatus and announced a relaunch for SS17, this time with shoes!

The SS17 collection is filled with quirky and flirty styles that empower women to add a little play to their look. Our favorites include the bright white pointy court shoe with lip patch and asymmetrical winking eye motifs. A great statement shoe is the bubblegum pink satin kitten heel mule with oversized bow, not to mention the flat sling-back feather embellished pointed shoes in cream, fabulous footwear for all occasions that require a je ne sais quoi.

Rumor has it, the creative genius sisters are planning to re-add bags back into the collection as of Fall 17′. We’ll be watching this space.
