A Portobello Summer

A Portobello Summer


It's the season for dialing down, wandering about town, and enjoying the sunshiny weather. With clear skies and absolutely no chance of rain, it is the perfect time to walk down the cobbled streets of heritage destinations like the town of Vigan in Ilocos or Las Casas de Acuzar in Bataan, bargain-hunt in Bangkal for vintage finds or in Dapitan for crafts and ceramics, or share a bowl of artisanal ice cream with a long-lost friend.

When a carefree jaunt is your only agenda for the day, it's best to bring along a bag that's just as fun to stroll around with. Katre has just the perfect companion for you – the Portobello crossbody bag. Inspired by the vibrant street markets of Notting Hill (read more), the Portobello comes in a brilliant selection of colors, from green and pink to yellow, orange, and blue. It's a saddle bag with a zipper instead of a flap, giving easy access to your phone, wallet, or lipstick.


Made from calf leather, the Portobello has a good length of a strap so that you can swiftly sling it across your body. If you're not so fond of body crossovers, then adjust the strap and sling the Portobello over your shoulder.

All smooth and rounded on the edges, the Portobello is just the bag to bring along when you want to bring your hair down. Pick a color which makes you smile or which complements your wardrobe. Just remember that when it comes to the Portobello, there's no room for business. Take it out when you're ready to have some fun, and just enjoy the ride!

The Portobello is 8 inches in height, 8.5 inches in length, and 3 inches in width. SHOP PORTOBELLO.
