Rosy times - Roségold meets denim: a trendy shoulder bag with clip closure in a retro look. The trend colour Roségold meets classic denim fabric. Denim has become an integral part of the fashion world. Whether in winter or summer - denim is always an integral part of the fashion world. Roségold combines the elegance of gold with the feminine playfulness of delicate rose nuances. So that the radiant colour does not appear too girlish, we combine it with a casual denim. A perfect mixture! The clip closure is initially reminiscent of vintage bags, but the trendy Roségold clip closure is a real eye-catcher and always a stylish companion!
