22 Oct ROMAnesque
Keeping up with the urban lifestyle in Manila means surviving its hot and humid climate while pacing on concrete floors from one commitment to the next. While most will choose to drag their beach bags only when they’re on a holiday, sipping coconuts on an island, I on the other hand, have brought forth a formidable design that shall take us from cobblestones to sand.
Morning coffee in one hand, Roma bag in the other, I step out of my car in my wedge heels and thank the heavens for making it out of traffic. A breezy floral top means I can still look fresh and confident when meeting a client. Throw in a bit of a sparkle with my sequined pants and I’m ready for some spontaneous night-out with my girlfriends.
Straw bags earned an essential spot in wardrobes of influential women from Audrey Hepburn to Olivia Palermo, it sure is tough deciding which one to snag from quirky embellished totes to elaborate high-end investments. Roma, I’d say apart from its allure and its durability, is also ethically produced for the conscientious consumer.

Nothing, I dare say, complements a modern woman better than a bold and classic aesthetic such as what the Roma possess. From its striking patterns and structural design, to its pragmatic shape and exquisite trims that even a goddess might covet, this carryall is nature’s gift to all fierce and on-the-go women of the present and the future.
