A Short History...

Lam√© is a type of fabric that is woven with metallic fibres. In the case of this bag, the lam√© is woven with golden thread. It was highly popular during the Art Deco period for the making of dresses, shawls and bags. It reflects the light beautifully and met women's demands for attractive evening wear to accompany their new found freedom. 

Wear it With...

This bag is the perfect accessory for formal daywear - perhaps pair it with a floral maxi dress for a winter event?
