I love making a bold fashion statement in order to standout in a crowd and Anuschka’s unique hand painted accessories make a beautiful and colorful impression.

“There’s no how-to road map to style. It’s about self-expression and above all, attitude” ~ Iris Apfel
The legendary geriatric fashion icon, Iris Apfel, knows a thing or two about style. She is an amazing woman who embodies self-expression, bold color, stellar fashion and ultimate self confidence. If you aren’t familiar with her you should definitely google her, and when you do, you are bound to discover that she is a true fashionista who lives for making a bold a fashion statement (and that she does!) and she can care less about what other people think! And while I am no Iris Apfel (although I want to be her when I grow up!), I am definitely a woman who adores fashion, bold colors and wearing unique statement making items that standout in a crowd. With this in mind, I am excited to share a fabulous fashion brand that I recently discovered with you.
My latest fashion RAVE is Anuschka™, a premium artisanal brand that creates unique one-of-a-kind hand painted accessories that are sold around the world. Anuschka is owned by the Basu family, who have been designing their exquisite handmade accessories for over 25 years. Each Anuschka product is handcrafted from fine leather and then individually painted, not by professional artists but by young men and women who have been trained by the brand and take tremendous pride in their creations. And while these esteemed and skilled workers are the ones creating each piece, to this day, a member of the Basu family still does a final check of every accessory to ensure top notch quality and design standards are met before hand-signing each piece.
At the core of the Anuschka brand is a synergistic relationship between fashion, function, quality and artistic design. The designs are inspired by the vibrant hues of nature, vintage design and runway trends which helps strike a beautiful balance between utility and artistry, transforming every Anuschka accessory into ‘wearable art’.
Not only are Anuschka accessories beautiful to look at, but the brand also pays close attention to functionality and features so that your handbag can meet your lifestyle needs. They are meticulous about incorporating details like multiple compartments, adjustable shoulder straps, key fobs, cell phone and security pockets into their handbags.
Needless to say, there are a lot of impressive details that go into creating these gorgeous bags. However, truth be told, what this fashionista cares about most is how unique and fabulous these bags look!
Anuschka’s hand painted artisanal beauties are GORGEOUS! There are so many stunning statement making designs, I had a hard time narrowing down my choices to just two.
After much debating, I chose the two handbags featured in these photos and I can’t stop drooling over them! The Large Organizer Tote in Jeweled Plume peacock design is a show-stopper. I’m a sucker for blue and green hues so this design instantly caught my eye. This bag is equally as gorgeous in person and I love the rich, vibrant hues and detailed peacock design that just leaps off the bag. Plus the high quality leather and the craftsmanship of this structured tote is top notch. I love how roomy it is and that it has multiple compartments to help me organize all my stuff. This bag is perfect for travel and business meetings, and the colorful design definitely makes an impression.
And I love that the peacock motif is also painted/continues on the back. I truly appreciate that attention to detail and design, stunning!
The other purse that I fell in love with was the Shoulder Hobo in Vintage Bouquet. I adore the boho chic slouchy fringe design, it’s totally my style! This handbag is super fashionable and will add a colorful flair to any outfit. It has become my new go-to bag for Spring and Summer!
And like the Jeweled Plume Tote, the Hobo Vintage Bouquet bag, like all Anuschka accessories are finished and painted on the back to further exemplify the brand’s attention to detail.
