Bags, Clutches & Purses With Didi Creations

UK based Nigerian label Didi creations released a bag limited collection featuring African prints with a vintage, contemporary and futuristic feel.

UK-based Nigerian label Didi Creations, designed by Tina Ndidi Ugo, just released two new collections: one of jewelry and another featuring their limited edition handbags. The loobook for the latter showcases the brand's eye-catching bag designs, which look like the perfect blend of vintage African patterns and contemporary design, each piece having its own distinct mark. It stars two models who look like they might be shopping together, or even, fighting over the bags (which one's going to have it?). Scroll through our gallery to view the photographs and if you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #didicreations.
