Nathalie Trad for D’NA Boutique: On Display

Forget coffee table books. I also display unique bags in my home (that is, when I’m not displaying them on my arm), and this capsule collection from Nathalie Trad and our friend Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz’s D’NA Boutique in Riyadh is more than worthy of a spot on my shelf!
