MMPR Representing Kao Pao Shu Handbags

Devoted to strength and longevity with its unpredictable, abstract detail comes Kao Pao Shu, a collection of handbags, clothing and accessories that convert to wearable art. With a fascinating intrinsic ability to perceive and create, Designer, Naida Begeta sews each piece as the design comes to her, rather than adhering to a premeditated concept. A graduate of the University of Sarajevo's Academy of Arts, Begeta's unique ability to take structural design and unconventional design theory and apply it to fashion has won her several awards and enabled her to translate her knowledge and dream into a line of evolving style. Each one of her Kao Pao Shu pieces is innate with a whimsical, urbane disposition that intimately reflects her intelligent yet mesmerizing spirit.


Bound together with detailed webbing and ribbon, Kao Pao Shu's handbags are the foundation of the company reflecting Begeta's positive attitude and the brand's attention to detail with vivid colors, exquisite fabrics, and unique intricate construction. The stylish Susan Bag has a webbed base and comes with an embellished adjustable shoulder strap for the business woman, while the playful Big Bow Clutch made of lustrous black webbing and a multicolored bow with a handy wristlet is perfect for the fashionista's night out on the town. Kao Pao Shu's ribbon trademark doesn't stop at handbags, as the design is transmitted across the entire collection with an assortment of fierce ribbon dresses, ribbon jackets, and ribbon skirts composed of various shades and textures that lure the eye. Made with grosgrain ribbon details, the pieces range in a palette of hues from mystifying dark charcoals to vibrant and rich fuchsia, olive, emerald, gold and ruby red tones that complement the classic closet. Over-lock dresses and sweaters are another rarity of Kao Pao Shu as silk, lace, cotton and linen are sewn with a method of connecting two pieces of fabric with a series of thread loops around the edges. The textured fabric is innovatively engineered into flattering seamless garments that can effortlessly be transformed from loose fitting sweaters to elegant fitting evening dresses for the girl on the go. Kao Pao Shu's designs exemplify femininity but embed confidence through the juxtaposition of timeless silhouettes and structural accents. The brand's clothing, bags, and accessories come in elusive shapes and styles that are bold yet distinct in their composition and assume offbeat shapes and personality.

Launched in 2006, Kao Pao Shu was born in Naida Begeta's hometown, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Named after the iconic 1960's Kung Fu director and actress, Kao Pao Shu, the avant-garde line was quick to gain recognition and notoriety that drove its relocation to its current setting in the US. The brand has sustained and nurtured its relationship with Japan in various boutiques and department stores in the country, and has since entered the doors of specialty stores in America. Kao Pao Shu's flagship store and showroom resides in Santa Monica, California, where Begeta continues to paint her brilliant visionary into designs and customize exclusive pieces for her clients; www.kaopaoshu.com.
