Browsing trough bag land, we recently spotted a new bag label. Each bag is unique in it’s own way and comes with a table-bag-hanger and mini flashlight. Pretty impressed by the bags, we had to ask the designer a few questions.

There is a new bag label in town, please tell us more?

VANOIR is different and unique. Every design is created by hand and has a unique qualified look. Our products can be recognized by the surprisingly memorizing details. Each design has hidden surprises that make it wearable for every occasion. VANOIR bags are created to surprise, impress & fit with your looks and identity. We thrive to deliver a bag not only based on global trends but one that goes beyond fashion and needs. All designs are made in our studio from idea, to pattern, to bag. The metal trims are developed in Italy and specially made for VANOIR. This guarantees the quality level and unique handwriting.

If there were three words to define VANOIR, what would they be?

  • Uniqueness
  • Surprising
  • Individuality

We’ve noticed your eye for detail, as every bag is different, are there particular details that are repeatedly visible throughout the collection?

I love details. Details are like the cherry on the pie. It is the finishing touch that surprises. The VANOIR bags are each different but similar in the soft denim lining as well as in the accessories like the light and hanger.

Who is the VANOIR style icon?

That’s me, Esther van Oirschot, creative mastermind. Already working for more than 25 years in the fashion industry as a designer. I have worked with so many different brands and noticed they are driven by commerce and sales figures. Designing my own brand gives me the opportunity to focus on what’s really important in a good design. Handmade unique bags that surprises by its design, quality and its character. Every VANOIR bag says something about the person who wears it and about me. It reflects my style of looking authentic, a bit different. Every bag is like a diamond in a pile of rocks.

Bags are booming, especially the famous labels are flourishing with their bag collections. What makes VANOIR stand out in the crowd?

We are a brand that targets the same quality and design level as the famous brands, but we want to always keep an affordable price level. Clean, minimalistic from the outside, but noticed as soon as you wear them. VANOIR bags are more like unique art items, an object of beauty, which expresses and supports your individual style.

What is your all time favorite VANOIR bag?

STITCH was one of the first designs I made, and represents me as a person. It’s a classical shape bag, but will always be noticed because of its unique shape. It’s a bag where I tried to combine techniques commonly used in the fashion industry but never in a leather bag.
