For the past fifteen years, Lebanese brand Sarah’s Bag has been at the forefront of regional accessories design, mixing craft and heritage with lots of quirk – in the best way possible. From its ‘Fast and Fabulous’ collection to its tropical love birds and exotic fruit clutches, the brand has created some of the most coveted accessories on the market.
For the Fall 2015 season, Sarah’s Bag offers a playful collection of medicinal-inspired bags. “With ‘Retail Therapy’, we wanted to gently mock the crazy pace of modern life that makes medication part of our norm, while it is in fact prescribed for serious conditions,” founder and designer Sarah Beydoun tells Savoir Flair exclusively. “[These medicines] are simply too well known, so this collection is a parody in the form of dainty box clutches with silver canvas backgrounds and metallic hand-beaded and embroidered detailing that carefully mimics the products’ original packaging – down to the way you open and close the carton of ‘pills’. So we have ‘Prozak’ and ‘Xanaks’, among others, and for the purists who prefer natural forms of healing we also offer box clutches with potent doses of ‘Euphoria’ and ‘Happiness’!”
While the brand is renowned for its embroidery and expert beading, Beydoun introduced new materials for the therapeutic designs. “We experimented with materials such as resin and Perspex for the first time to create the ‘Chill Pill’. It’s a capsule-shaped clutch in pop-art bright colors that is definitely better for your health and happiness than anything you can get from a doctor.”
