Mother’s Day ‘Mandala’: Etro Debuts a ‘Magic’ Bag Collection to Honor Our Wonderful Mums
Vanity Fair author William Makepeace Thackerey wrote, “Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.” And as another Mother’s Day approaches (May 8 this year), we are very much reminded that we will always be our mothers’ little kids, and they will always be our unquestionable heroes.
The annual day we celebrate our love for our mums takes on a particularly special meaning in 2022, as it will be the first such day since 2019 in which we can safely see them in person again. Indeed, the twenty-five-months-and-counting COVID crisis paradoxically kept families apart at a time when they really most needed to be together.
So as much as we highly recommend gifting mom with several really big hugs this year on her special day, a new release by Etro has us thinking a little fashion splurge for her might also be in order. Indeed, the new ‘Magic Mandala’ handbag collection is not only gorgeous in that uniquely boho-chic Etro sort of way, but it also comes with a side of Eastern enlightenment.
“Mandala” in the ancient Sanskrit language of Buddhism and Hinduism translates as “circle.” Transferring to design, it becomes a geometric pattern that refers to very heavens themselves, and seeks to unite us in peace with the universe. And what mother wouldn’t appreciate that?
The clutches and generously proportioned totes are crafted from printed cotton canvas with elegant leather trim, and are available in natural tones of cherry blossom, sky blue and our fave, emerald green. The signature tag is of course embossed with the classic Etro logo and signature winged Pegasus. All are available now in select Etro boutiques, as well as at Etro.com.
Just remember to fill it with lots of unconditional love before giving it to mom.
