“My designs are a mixture of different types of inspiration. Culture, lifestyle, food, travel experiences and conversations with people I meet along the way all serve as starting points for my pieces. My life unfolds all over the world and my designs are a reflection of everything that I absorb and discover.” –Naana Tenachie Yankie

NEW RELEASE: ‘Josephine’

“The Coccolily Josephine bag was my favorite bag to work on.” Tennachie Yankey

The Coccolily vintage inspired handbags sold out within weeks when they debuted last season.  Mais bien sûr! Who doesn’t love Italian leather?  So earlier this year the brand announced that they would be introducing a new line of handbags, ( see here ), starting with the release of  the “Josephine” bag.  Well here it is!  (Adding this to my wishlist).

I absolutely love the refined vintage glamour of the Coccolily handbags.   If you could not get your hands on one of these gorgeous Italian leather bags last season don’t fret dolls because designer Naana Yankey wants you to know:

The last season for Coccolily Handbags was exciting and amazing.  Fans and customers were very excited about all the Coccolily bags because of the quality and style. Most bags sold out in their first week of display. This Season I am working on some new bags that should be ready by July 14th.  I am specializing in quality and these new bags will be made with high quality genuine Italian leather, quality workmanship and new branding. The first new Coccolily bag that is coming out is called ‘Josephine’. ”   xx Naana Yaney
