Four years ago, we made a clutch named the Venice. We only had enough of the fabric to make a handful, and they sold out immediately. We had a lot of requests for it, so we searched for years to find more of that beautiful fabric. Back in February, during a trip to see family, we finally found enough of the fabric to make another limited run. We asked our friend Heidi, designer and co-founder of Aha Crafted, if she could make a special set of earrings to match. She's created two beautiful options of leather and gemstone earrings that go perfectly with the Lido, which will be available together with the clutch as a special set. The Lido Set will be released first on the Aha Crafted website (on Friday, July 17th), and then on this site on Saturday, July 18th at 7 AM.
What's in a name?
Sometimes Soulucean clutch names have a story behind them. Lido is an island in Venice, Italy (home of the first beach resort), so the two names are connected that way. Coincidentally, the closest beach to where we found the fabric was Lido Key (Florida), and the photoshoot was at Lido Marina Village in Newport Harbor, up the road from us here in California! The second generation of this Soulucean favorite was destined to be named the Lido.
