If there is one piece of fashion item any fashion girl can hardly get enough of, it is handbags. That is why here at Mammypi Fashion House, we are always excited to share with you our latest trends and some of those fashionable brands you probably have been too busy to discover.
If you are on the lookout online or in stores for the latest IT bags this season, then Irene Major and Mammypi have collaborated to recommend to you the latest brands and trends to you popping up in the fashion world. We have sourced out one of Africa’s fastest growing brands Cocoa Africk.
Our excitement stems from a plethora of reasons, each of which a true fashion girl will understand instantaneously. First off, every fashion girl wants to be the first to know about the latest brand in the market. Secondly we love this brand because the designer tells us they took over 6 years conceptualising and coming up with the best ideas and designs. Here is the bit we are really excited about, this seasons range includes secure tote bags. These bags come with an extra pouch inside with a string to secure your little items.
Cocoa Africk bags feel as good as they look and the gold trimming on the secure tote goes to prove that every detail of the bags has been carefully manufactured. Cocoa Africk bags ranges from about £85 to £400 they are perfect in size for your day-to-day use. The bags are affordable and of great quality made with good material and of excellent finish.
