sin Akan launched her eponymous London-based label in 2012 after forming a wealth of knowledge within the handbag and luxury leather goods; working at some of the world’s most reputable fashion houses including Burberry and Anya Hindmarch. Whilst at Burberry, Akan specialized in sourcing leather goods and handbags, developing strong links with the top leather manufacturers in Europe.
Akan describes her design ambition as “helping busy women achieve their highest potential by looking stylish and confident in every situation; from the office to weekends with friends, nights out, and even the gym”. Akan creates bags that seamlessly transition from day to night, work to events and remain timeless.
Esin is inspired by independent women who like to live their life to the fullest and do not want to compromise on style. While the handbag shapes are influenced by Scandinavian minimalism and practicality, the leathers are inspired by her travels to Italy and France.
