A Must-Have Island Accessory
One Caribbean Estates recently met with Esther Lussan, founder of Island Bags by Lilian Russell, to learn more about the inspiration behind her gorgeous handbags.
With a background in Graphic and Interior Design and a family full of creative talent, it was no surprise that Esther successfully launched Island Bags in 2013. She describes the philosophy behind her company as “chic, fun clutch bags designed for fabulous women with a great sense of style.” She later expanded the business and now Island Bags is part of Lilian Russell, a larger online boutique that features handbags, clothing, accessories and home goods.
Esther’s design inspiration primarily comes from the light, colours and people of her home country of Barbados, as well as her travels around the world. These one-of-a-kind images are then printed locally onto each bag.
Let One Caribbean Estates help you get in touch with Esther Lussan to add a bit of simple luxury and glamour to your style.
