NZ leather handbag brand designer Roanne Jacobson

Working in an industry that is fundamentally about what is next; always working seasons ahead, Saben creative director Roanne says “moments of being present have to be created. Having time, space and energy and no distractions - that  is luxury. That feeling became the starting point of our Exhale collection”

The colour palette is paired back, it features a fresh white, neutral linen and earthy tans. The “new navy” prussian, is a loving ode to Roannes early chapters as an artist. Prussian is her favourite colour to paint with; The act of painting itself is so meditative, pairing perfectly with the origins of the collection.
