Recently, I came across a new line of leather bags & accessories called Divina Deneuvo. Outside of their unique designs, all of the bags and accessories are made using antique and vintage hardware and adornments, and wherever possible, reclaimed leather. So far, this new and niche brand has been a relatively well kept secret – but I just can’t keep my mouth shut on this one.
Divina Denuevo debuted their men’s line at Eco Fashion Week in Vancouver and were honored with an “Excellence Award” in the accessory category. The company’s name, Divina Denuevo literally means “Divine Again” in Spanish. The two designers behind the line (Dave Kelly and Victoria Ronco) are passionate about sustainability, history, and luxury. The antique and vintage hardware and adornments they use find new life in fashion. Items they’ve used range from old skeleton keys, cabinet door handles, keyplates, and door knockers. They work with leather because it’s organic, and therefore unique in that every piece has it’s own color, grain, and texture. Their line is luxurious while also being durable. The timeless style and elegance of the bags allow you to carry a piece of the past with you. Wouldn’t you rather carry a piece of the past this way, instead of lugging around your personal “baggage” from your past? Haha – I sure would.
Offering messenger bags (like the “Ayre Skeleton Key” one shown above), laptop bags, wallets, keychains, clutches, and more, they’ve got some really unique accessories that would definitely make someone really happy and “Divine Again” this holiday season. Check out more of the designs below.
Ayre Skeleton Key Leather Messenger Bag In Olive Green
This gorgeous olive green leather “envelope style” messenger bag is perfect for carrying all your essentials – and look good doing it. Allow two weeks for creation because this work of art is made to order.
“Barcelona Steampunk Grunge” Laptop Bag
Rich light brown oiled leather laptop bag can hold up to a 16″ laptop. It’s made to order so you have to allow two weeks for creation – but the made to order aspect makes it that much more special in my opinion!
Preston Brown Key Accent Credit Card Wallet
As previously mentioned, they make wallets as well (several different styles). This brown leather wallet features white contrast stitching and a key latch closure (my favorite part). It’s approximately 3.5″ x4″ and is made to order.
Skeleton Key and Escutcheon Key Chain
These would make excellent stocking stuffers, or simply and great way to make your key chain a whole lot fancier. If you’re thinking someone you might like would want one, again, order ahead of time as each piece is made to order.
Men’s Fashion Line Debut At Eco Fashion Week
The Devina Denuevo men’s bags make their fashion debut on the runway at Eco Fashion Week.
