Close your eyes (okay, not literally) and try to imagine a white, tranquil village, surrounded by untamed mountains and deep green olive trees, right beneath the glooming Spanish sun. Generation after generation, its inhabitants have developed a high-quality leather tradition that goes beyond a mere profession. For Ubrique’s craftsmen, leatherwork is their art, their passion, their way of life.

And it was out of this love that Barada was born. Founded by the Andalusian family Valle, Barada’s aim was to transmit their 60 years of manufacturing expertise and skills into a brand with international appeal, yet a typical Spanish allure (and, oh did they achieve that!). 

Through a careful design and elaborate handcrafting process, each bag holds a distinctive and yet harmonious essence. The designer, Ana María Valle, finds her inspiration in the soul and landscapes of her homeland, Andalusia in Southern Spain. The characteristic red and orange tones of Andalusian sunsets, the intense green mantle of cork oaks that coats this region… These hues are all incorporated into her collections.

Getting to know the brand, I was compelled by the story behind it, and immediately felt aligned with the woman they envision: free, feminine and fierce. Strolling through the wheat fields had never felt so appropriate.

And it was about the bag. All about the bag. My one and only Atenea. Its structured shape, its dusty nude colour and the luxuriously croc embossed leather make this piece simply irresistible.

And remember, dear mademoiselles, the arrival of summer does not only bring endless beach days and Stracciatella ice creams, but also the thrill of summer sales! Don’t you miss out!
