Since 2010, V&R handbags, has been dominating the European market. Finally, these stunning bags have made their way to the U.S. Gorgeous knit bags that are completely handmade from beginning to end, with flawless quality and craftmanship. The designs are classic, with a flair of texture and color, that truly are unique. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to chat with husband and wife owners, Vasilis and Roxani Borsis, to find out more about the designer and the Chic & Unique collection by V&R.
