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.
