Tell us a little about the concept behind Esemble?
Esemble hit the scene in Autumn 2016 with our modern take on vintage handbags. We place an emphasis on classic designs with eclectic details, functionality and luxury quality at a contemporary price point.
We want to create empowering, thoughtful and uniquely personal pieces that transcend trends, designed for the modern girl seeking an effortless wardrobe.
What makes the brand different in a world full of beautiful bags?
We want people to feel happiness derived from a sense of discovery, like finding something personal in a New York City flea market. Furthermore, we feel very proud when people say that the quality and functionality of our bags exceeded their expectation due to our accessible price.
When conceiving the brand, we set out to be inclusive—a quality bag does not have to cost someone’s monthly salary. The word “luxury” for us is about the ability for everyone to spoil themselves, not a false sense of exclusivity derived from keeping things out of people’s reach.
What are the highlights of AW2020 collection?
Esemble’s Autumn/Winter 2020 collection celebrates bold femininity through striking silhouettes brought to life by vivid tones.
This season introduces Lucia, a wholly original shape that defies typecasting. Its spirit is inspired by the achievements of champion boxer Lucia Rijker. Always a fierce competitor, Lucia has evolved from being “the most dangerous woman in the world” to an empowering life coach. Through all this, she has displayed a heart-warning level of compassion toward her fellow human beings.
Also, both our classic Bell Shoulder Bag and Park Shoulder Bag receive a makeover. We add a whimsical touch with the Bell’s scrunchy handle, bringing forth a contrast between the regular and voluptuous shapes, while retaining the bag’s original elegance. The Park Shoulder Bag is re-imagined with croc embossed texture bathed with rich fuchsia and wood sap colours.
Our design’s balance of hard and soft, glamour and playfulness, acknowledges the multi-faceted aspects of the contemporary woman.
What kind of person completes their outfit with Esemble?
They’re very motivated and they care a lot about the world.
Where is the brand stocked across the globe?
Esemble is now stocked in major leading luxury retailers in Asia – Harvey Nichols Landmark and Pacific Place, in addition to well curated multi-brand boutiques Kapok in Hong Kong; Hi Mall, Look Store, JAT Showroom, Dolce Far Niente and Intime Department Store in China. Our products are also available online on T-mall Global, Zalora and Reebonz.
And what can we expect to fit into an Esemble bag?
Our signature Bell Shoulder Bag might look small but it’s actually quite roomy. It’s easy for people to put daily essentials like their purse, phone, lipstick, hand sanitizer and AirPods. In fact, our new Micro Bell Bag is perhaps the cutest way to protect your AirPods from everyday use. It also comes with a leather strap for extra grip, so you won’t lose or drop your accessories!
P.S. Esemble was invited to take part in the launch of TMall International’s new global platform, and they will be offering many exclusive deals there, so keep an eye out.
