Meet Astrid & Mauranne.
Astrid is a spacious and elegant new design. With enough space to fit even a book, umbrella or water bottle.
Mauranne is a small crossbody bag suitable for your daily essentials.
Both refreshing and practical.
Meet Astrid Haerens: a Belgian writer and poët, and the inspiration for our newest spacious crossbody bag.
“I read and write to understand the world and my place within. But also to find comfort in the beauty of language. Poetry is, for me, a thickened form of beauty. I love to combine the rational and the intuitive when writing.”
As a fervent reader, she regularly heads down to the park with one of her books. So Lies decided to design a bag that could easily fit a book alongside her other belongings.
As a future-oriented brand, sustainablility is at the heart of our practice. We are very much aware of the environmental impact of our industry and commit ourselves to proving things can be done differently. A circular approach and continuous research regarding the next green solutions, are part of our daily scope.
