With the launch of X NIHILO’s newest collection dropping in only a weeks time we are excited to give you the down low of how Collection 3 came together and why you will want need every single damn bag, even if your bank account says differently.
“When you love what you do, creativity and ideas are not hard to find’’ says Jenny founder of X NIHILO who explains it took just over a week to create her most exciting collection yet.
Trends come and go as fast as Melbourne's ever changing weather situation, so it was important that the designs for the new collection intertwined with what is currently hot on the runway without straying away from X NIHILO's style. The little details with stitching, colour swatches and structural designs were a key focus for Collection 3 as the bags are representing the ongoing maturity of the brand itself.
“The time spent planning is primarily focused on looking at the small details, shape structures and colours that are creating a stir in the fashion world. After identifying the aspects that I like, we deconstruct those details so that we are moving away from what is already been heavily done by other brands and end up enhancing the details that are shown in the DNA of X NIHILO’’
Collection 3 has a variety of new additions and advanced inspirations from past seasons success’. Below are the 5 new styles and beauties that are blessing your feed in August.
As the name states, the “KEEPER” will never go out of date. Handcrafted in smooth Nappa leather and boasting a sturdy base, the sleek design has been designed for the ultimate working woman who needs to fit more than just a laptop and her Fendi keychain in her bag. Fitted with a single snap button closure, it also offers an outside pocket for easy access to all your essentials that too often get lost at the bottom of any handbag. Inside you will find a fully lined interior, card and mobile slots and even a large padded compartment designed to fit a 13” laptop. As seen in Vogue consistently in the last few months’ wide shoulder straps are in and the "KEEPER" is that perfect wide length to make every day feel as comfortable as a perfect Sunday morning!
This style and colour were bound to make an appearance as we see this style flocking the streets of Monte Carlo, Positano, Barcelona… in fact anywhere where land meets water practically. Crafted from easy-care canvas and contrasting tan Nappa leather, this bag is perfected with eye-catching gold hardware. It was designed specifically for usability, with a sturdy rectangular base for structure, a spacious interior and drawstring top for easy access to your items at all times. You have the option to carry it by the handles or adjustable shoulder strap so there’s nothing holding you back from chasing those rays! We think it's time for a getaway to the Greek Islands.
Cue Big Sean’s ‘I don’t f*** with you’ and hustle up with the bag that oozes #GIRLPOWER. The Hustler is handcrafted from luxuriously smooth box leather to hold its unique crescent structure and features a sturdy zip closure. Perfected with a fully lined interior, handy card slots and phone pocket, this bag will easily become your new everyday staple to throw over your shoulder.
This bag is for the wonder woman who juggles a ridiculous amount of work and responsibilities on her shoulders but still walks out of the house looking like a million dollars without a care in the world. The ‘JUGGLER’ shoulder bag is compact yet surprisingly roomy, inside you will find three spacious compartments to organise your essentials, and an additional internal zipped pouch to secure smaller items. The epitome of flexibility, ‘JUGGLER’ will accompany you from day to night and can be worn cross-body so after a few espresso martinis it will not get in the way of some impromptu dancing and karaoke to ‘Dancing Queen.’
EIGHT AND BANK EXTRA'S
Thanks to popular request special additions to the Eight and Bank design means now you have a few more options to choose from. The Bank Black now comes in a larger size to suit the working woman who needs a bag that will work both weekdays and weekends. As for the Eight, not only have they provided a larger option for more space but also a mini option in 5 different colours. Black, tan and Bordeaux has just made your shopping that little bit more exciting and difficult all at once!
As Jenny explains, X NIHILO represents powerful women and these new additions further epitomise their beliefs. “ Whilst I was deciding the names of each bag I found all of the names that came to mind were relating to different stages or characteristics of my own life. That is why I’m so proud of how well it has come together because it represents my journey as a person, businesswoman and creative director."
In past Collections, the bags have represented individual women who have inspired the team at X NIHILO, Collection 3 differs as it acknowledges that women don't just have one identity but a number of roles that they need to play in life. Hustler, Juggler and Sunseeker are clear descriptions of all the lady bosses out in the world who are career Hustlers, are able to Juggle a professional, social and family life at once and are always sun-seeking for their next deserved holiday!
Collection 3 is all about being a little bit more glam and so that means the Eight Mini Bordeaux, Hustler, Juggler, Keeper and Sunseeker will all be made to order, ensuring that every single purchase made is perfectly created for its newest owner. Happy shopping xxx
