Do you want to feel like a Hollywood celebrity decked out for the Oscars? Accessorize yourself with the beaded, feathered and sequined handbags and shoes from Ipa-Nima. Bags, serve as canvases for intricate geometric patterns as well as more life-like images from nature. This Vietnamese company exports its goods to fancy department stores and boutiques around the world. Items in their Hanoi retail shop, though, sell for a fraction of the cost.
Love all of it. We went to both stores in hanoi. although the main shop has more selections which of course we bought more there. On this trip to Ipa Nima all of us bouth nearly 30 items. Wow what an experience. Prices were great and affordable too. If we have a chance to visit Hanoi we surely visit IpaNima again.
The Ipa-Nima boutique was highly recommended by travel guide books so we decided to check it out. As we did not have much time left in Hanoi before our flight home and as we were unable to locate the main boutique, we settled on the branch located on Church Street, which is a mere few steps away from St. John's Cathedral. The shop is easy to miss as the name of the shop is "Tina Sparkle" and in pink words right below, it says "By Ipa-Nima".
The boutique was not very large but it was spacious enough and the goods were neatly arranged on the shelves. The lighting in the shop was good and there was an ample selection of beautiful and well-crafted handbags, tote-bags, evening and casual bags enough to make any normal girl swoon. Indeed, the bags were mostly in hues of pink, fuschia and purple and some had very ornate embelishments ideal for formal events.
Prices ranged from approximately USD30 (excluding VAT) for a medium size purse with strap and approximately USD120 (excluding VAT) for the bigger or more embelished bags.The boutique also stocks a nice selection of
There was an end of season sale when we were there and I bought a vintage-looking evening bag with an elaborate stone-encrusted brooch like buckle at 60% off and was extremely pleased with my purchase.
It is extremely difficult to exercise self-restraint in a shop filled with such lovelies which I feel is reasonably priced. We were informed by the attendants at the boutique that Ipa-Nima's bags are available in many countries all over the world via their agents but the bags sold in Hanoi are apparently half the price compared to those sold overseas.
