Luxury bags by Cerre

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Argo: Large buffalo tote with Japanese suede lining, custom Lampo zipper and Cerre eclipse hot branded on one side

Cerre is a luxury brand that produces a line of accessories and objects. They are not based on a season but release collections around fall and spring/summer. THe main focus of this Los Angeles based brand is luxury and craftsmanship and the idea is that when you purchase one of their bags they would like to think of it more like an heirloom, something that can age and become more beautiful and that you can hand down to one generation after another. .
