BOTH CHILDREN OF CHINESE IMMIGRANTS, VILA AND ARIYA HAVE INCORPORATED CHINESE BELIEFS SUCH AS THE ‘RED THREAD’ SEWN AROUND THE LOGO OF THE BAG IN ORDER TO CONNECT DESTINED LOVERS, AND ‘RED ENVELOPE’, A SECRET POCKET THAT BRINGS GOOD FORTUNE.
SECRET (noun) something you tell everybody to tell nobody.
We believe that a woman’s handbag is a little safe space that holds out her secrets everywhere she goes. That is why we have created a secret pocket, hidden at the bottom of every Kiizé handbags, for our girls to put their little secret items inside safely.
Inside every adult is the heart of a child, we just convinced ourselves that we have to act like one as part of growing up. That’s why our designers have deliberately embroidered Dr.Seuss’ inspirational quotes into the interior of every Kiizé bags, as a reminder to cheer you up. Even though they are from children books, but they really do teach us as adults the necessities in life sometimes.
According to the Chinese beliefs, a red thread is a symbol of love that connects two destined lovers together invisibly. In order to reflect the heritage of our designers’ background, we have incorporated this auspicious belief, by having the red thread sewn around the interior logo of our bags. To wish every Kiizé girl a good luck in their love lives.
