"The process in designing the be bag was long and took many turns. It started off as an homage to a music BIcon, shelved indefinitely, until a chance encounter with a beautiful should inspired its completion", says Rita.
The be bag is about trusting in the magic of fleeting encounters and seizing everything that comes with it.
It encapsulates a personal journey for Nazareno- to live free from judgement, embrace her voice, and celebrate connectedness of the human spirit.
The be bag is a reminder to be whatever it is you want to be.
