KEARA has gained noticeable traction in the past few months. From being featured at PAUSE in Amsterdam to gaining attention from bloggers and the media (stay tuned!), Adriana Valcarce and artisan team have planted the roots of a cutting-edge brand. Among numerous accomplishments is placement in prominent urban retailers. With both Valentine’s Day and Fashion Week in the near future, we will give you the go-to destinations for KEARA bags.
For KEARA: Our bags are featured at the Doordeweeks Concept Store in Amsterdam, located at Eerste van Swinden straat 22 in Amsterdam Oost and Ferdinand Bolstraat 147 in Amsterdam Zuid. Doordeweeks specialises in providing emerging designers with a creative showcase, bringing their customers only the best in a curated selection. They are absolutely new-school when it comes to organising the boutique - they even feature a make-up bar and coffee shop!
For Valentine’s Day: Wear our elegant Envelope Clutch to dinner at De Kas, a restaurant with a menu of delicious garden-grown produce. After dinner, watch a performance of Prince Igor from the Dutch National Opera.
For Fashion Week: Check out the Foam Photography Museum, which is featuring a new exhibition from Ren Hang. On March 30th-April 2nd, wear our distinctive Noflaye Bucket Bag to the PAUSE Pop-Up for sustainable fashion, featuring KEARA bags!
For KEARA: Visit La Boutique Équatorienne at 32 Rue du Faubourg Montmartre in Paris’ 9th Arrondissement to experience the quality of KEARA bags in-person. The boutique boasts a selection of artisan-crafted Ecuadorian products. Browse a selection of leather goods, accessories, and clothing produced by the best Latin designers. Because KEARA designer Adriana draws inspiration and materials from Latin American countries, La Boutique Équatorienne is a perfect fit for us!
Recently, La Boutique Equatorienne celebrated the KEARA brand by hosting a launch party on January 27. Guests included bloggers @PetiteInParis and @TheBlackWithTheBlackHat, as well as jewelry designer Sachiko Takimura founder of Epistemie.
For Valentine’s Day: Pack our Travel Bag with your cutest cocktail dress and head out for a romantic dinner cruise on Le Diamont Bleu to gaze at the Seine at night. If you enjoy theatre, check out Cesar Palace Cabaret for a modern twist on the classic dinner & show combo!
For Fashion Week: Fill our Cantuta Wallet with some spending money and shop the soldes (sales) happening in Paris at the moment. Attend one of the fashion shows that Galeries Lafayette presents every Friday, and don’t forget to take pictures!
Don’t forget that we also sell our bags in our home city: Dakar. Find KEARA bags at La Demeure boutique, located two roads after the Gondole roundabout in Almadies. On Sundays, La Demeure opens its terrace for a delicious brunch: totally worth it.
We have recently closed a deal with MINIBAP, a one of a kind shop for big and small, in Dakar. MINIBAP is located at rue A, Amitié 2, just behind Citydia supermarket. If you live in Plateau, pass by Le Djoloff for some well deserved tapas after shopping. If you live on the other side of the city, by Almadies, have an ice cream at Yogurlandia in Mermoz for us!
