In a woman’s life, a handbag is an important piece. It doesn't just represent an item that she uses to carry her belongings. It represents her personality.
ASKINA COLLECTION aims to encourage and remind women to speak for themselves, to rise about their comfort zone to achieve their deepest goals and aspirations. To build up her confidence whether she is in search of it or not, women, are so much more than she may think!
The material used and style of our design is clean and minimalist. Our colors of choice are thoughtful and season-less. Whatever the fashion trend is, the vision of ASKINA COLLECTION is to get you a functional piece.
The designs of ASKINA COLLECTION pieces are inspired from Anissa's travels and exposure to the different cultural element around the world, her life experience and a pinch of fashion trends around her. She blends her love for minimalism designs and timelessness to create collections that are designed for women in search of or who assert their individuality.
ASKINA COLLECTION evokes the idea of confidence, strength, freedom, beauty in the unknown and independence through high quality material and craftsmanship.
