"Life is luxury." This is the motto designer Deondra Jereé lives by, and executes flawlessly into her premier luxury handbag line, Deondra Jereé Collection. Based in New York, the 22-year-old designer distinguishes her line from the current fashion world by incorporating luxury materials and bold designs with the modern woman in mind. I'm excited to share our collaboration, and one of my favorite pieces from her Pre-Fall 2014 collection: the Braseé Juweyvos.

When I wear the Braseé Juweyvos bag, I immediately think, "Let's go on a great adventure!" Constructed from Italian-glazed leather and the finest lizard skins, it brings both a sense of luxury and lightweight practicality. To accentuate the rich Bordeaux shade, I paired it with bold lips and textured pumps. For warmer weather days, I can picture it with a little white dress and killer metallic sandals. What I love is how Deondra relates to the everyday modern woman and uses her as a main inspiration behind the collection. "I wanted to design pieces other women would wear—including myself."
What are your thoughts on my look, and how would you style the Braseé Juweyvos bag? I hope you enjoyed learning about Deondra Jereé and I encourage you to explore her new collection. Thank you for reading!
