About The Brand
A day that starts with a client meeting in London does not have to end there, does it? A last minute dinner invitation in Paris, a party in Barcelona, an engagement in Milan... Will you be ready, when life calls you?
Esin Akan is a luxury leather accessories company that specializes in smartly designed luxury handbags for working professionals. The modular designs help women to transition in different environments in an elegant and stylish way: from the office to the gym, a meeting to a cocktail party, even to a weekend abroad.
Our brand is inspired by intelligent women from all over the world, that live in London. They are driven, independent, successful and cultured.
