Item of the Day

We didn’t make it to Carnivale in Brazil this year, but that hasn’t stopped us from dreaming about the fun, festive spirit of this vibrant country, including its tropical jungles filled with colorful flora and fauna.

Luckily, Brazilian brand Carmen Steffens is on hand to transport us.

The plumage print on this handbag/backpack lures us to the jungle, effortlessly capturing the digital photo print trend so prevalent across accessories for spring.

The Brazilian footwear and handbag brand has been sold internationally for almost 20 years, and currently has 200 stores in 16 countries. With a flagship store in Los Angeles, Carmen Steffens has plans to open stores in New York, Florida and other U.S. markets in the next two years.

Brazil just got that much closer.
