Misela was founded in New York several years ago by Turkish designer Serra Türker and quickly became favoured for its luxe handbags, formerly sold exclusively in department stores and boutiques in a handful of cities around the world.
The label recently unveiled its first boutique, in Istanbul’s fashionable Şişhane neighbourhood. The compact yet stylish store highlights the chic, eye-catching spring/summer 2012 collection.
Purses, pochettes and clutches in python, sea snake and leather come in bright colours and bold patterns, accented with metal details – including the Misela logo of three inward-facing crescent moons, inspired by the traditional Ottoman çintemani motif.
