Samantha Thavasa’s bags are everywhere in Japan. If you can’t afford the must have Louis Vuitton handbags, then Samantha Thavasa is your next choice. The stores are covered in photos of Beyonce, Paris Hilton, Posh Spice and other celebrities-by-definition holding her bags or wearing her jewellery.
So, naturally, I thought it was an American or English brand name.
Not so. Samantha Thavasa, despite the name, is a brand born in Japan. And an expensive brand too. You may as well go for Louis Vuitton for the amount that you pay.
While not in my style personally, it’s Japanese fashion that I’m supposed to write about, and Samantha Thavasa is definitely one of the big-name brands here. The label will be opening a store soon in New York too. When the posters of Beyonce and Paris Hilton get circulated around there, it’s sure to be a success. Buy now from Japan while the prices are only moderately extortionate!
