05 Mar Get into the Mood with Bruinlabel!
Last weekend I enjoyed the greatest weekend with my sister in Nijmegen, the city that she is currently calling her hometown. Each other weekend she is coming to Amsterdam (check out her post From Nimma to Mokum), but this weekend I grabbed my bag and went to the far east of the Netherlands.
My big sister and I obviously went shopping in Nijmegen, the biggest town of Gelderland. At FashionWeek Amsterdam I met the talented designer named Rianne Bruin, the woman behind the accessory brand Bruinlabel. She told me that her beautiful leather accessories were sold in MOOD Conceptstore in Nijmegen. I happened to know this store by name as my sister had often bought here the coolest presents for our mutual friends, so visiting this shop was put high on our to-do-list. You can go to MOOD Conceptstore if you are in the mood for fashion, home decorations, coffee, inspiration, smoothies, art, reading magazine’s, etc. Besides her own accessory label, MOOD Conceptstore offers items of the well-known brands like Readytofish by Ilja Visser, Studio Ruig, Colourfull Rebel and Stutterheim Raincoats.
Bruinlabel is an accessory brand, designed and created by Rianne, and can be characterized by minimalist design, subtle details and natural materials. Her collection consist among other things of bags, purses, belts, bracelets, spectacle cases and laptop sleeves, each made of calf-leather and finished off with copper hardware, the signature of Bruinlabel. The bags are available in all kind of models: shoppers, clutches, laptop-bags, phone-bags, etc, and the prices are very reasonable. Rianne designs these items by hand in her small atelier in the back of MOOD Conceptstore. And if you want to customize your own bag, you can visit the store itself and choose your own model and color leather (that is available at that moment). The accessories of Bruinlabel are also sold in other stores, such as Olga Korstanje in Rotterdam, Lab. INDUSTRIE in Utrecht, Studio Mooigemaakt, as well as in other countries (Belgium, Spain and the US). So go and check the accessories by Bruinlabel if you are looking for an unique and special accessory that is handmade with care & love!
