When you think fashion, New York is likely to pop up in your mind. The city is known for their fashion driven market, showrooms and high runway shows. In Miami, we need to spruce up our fashion industry game. Luckily, Ximena Kavalekas is one designer leading the way. Ximena’s high fashion, high color, python leather handbags give Miami some fashion credit.
Ximena’s handbags go through a multiple step process before they are showcased in her private showroom in Miami and at high-end retailers. The python skins are collected, sent to Italy for careful care and processing. It is there where they are hand painted and crafted..
Once the bags are ready to wear (RTW), you can find them at Bergdorf Goodman’s, high end boutiques and by appointment at the gorgeous showroom in Brickell. The bags are a great representation of Miami due to names you may recognize, such as the “Biltmore” crossbody ($1,480.00) and Wynwood Black ($1,740.00). The Biltmore handbag acquired its name when she snapped a picture for Instagram, while she watched her kids play golf at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables. The picture gained pricing inquiries and BINGO! was named “Biltmore.” It comes in a range of nine shades including Millennial Pink to hike up your instagram color scheme.
With all the options, it’s no wonder Sofia Vergara opts for the Barbara and Caterina styles. Ready to coordinate your Miami style with a Ximena Kavalekas handbag? Shop the styles here.
