A smartly designed $8,000 handbag with a gold finish, the $8 million Pune Handbag is a luxury item that the Indian designer Gautam Biswas bought in 2010 for the princely sum of $8.5 million.
Biswas is the grandson of the country’s first head of state, Indira Gandhi, who died in power in 1977.
A few years later, Biswas and his wife, Murali, decided to expand their brand into the luxury category, with the launch of the Pune Collection in 2016.
The collection is built on the legacy of the late king, who is revered as the founder of modern India.
The brand’s designers, designers and artists all come from the royal family.
Biswas, a native of Bengal, and Muralisti, a painter, are all students at the Mumbai Design School.
The two were the founders of the design and architecture school.
This is a handbag by Gautama Biswas, the designer of the luxury Pune collection, as he poses in front of it in front the Royal Palace of Versailles in Paris, April 29, 2020.
The handbag, which Biswas has dubbed the ‘Queen of the Handbag’, is made of three layers of the same material and features gold and pearl trim.
Its dimensions are 15.5 x 13.5 cm (5 x 3.5 inches), the size of a standard 10 x 10 cm (4 x 2 inches) handbag.
The bag has a pocket at the front and a strap at the back.
Biswa has a deep understanding of luxury and its importance in India, said the designer.
“I wanted to make the Puke Collection a truly luxurious item.
It’s an expression of my heritage and the people’s love for my country,” he said.
According to Biswas the handbag is one of his favourite items.
While the designer has said that he wanted to create a luxury product for his grandfather, he also wants to be known for his other works.
“I feel honoured to be able to present the Pume Collection.
I want to convey the sense of respect to Indira.
I feel that the collection is a celebration of her life and legacy,” he added.
