Montunas

Costa Rica doesn’t have much of a reputation as a fashion hub but that doesn’t mean that this Central American country, with its twin Pacific and Caribbean coastlines, doesn’t provide ample sartorial inspiration. Montunas is a new luxury accessories brand set up by sisters Amanda and Elena Hawila together with their mother, former model Elke Ruge, who made her first bag 25 years ago on a Cattle Ranch in Costa Rica. Rooted in the country’s vibrant and effortless style, their launch collection is inspired by Costa Rica’s misty and dense cloud forests, so expect deep burgundy and moss-green tones as well as beautiful camouflage calf hair. Expertly made, these bags are perfect for girls on the go who love to throw in everything they need and be on their way. Thanks to the rainforest prints on the lining and mini pouches, you’ll always be carrying a little bit of Costa Rica with you.
