Keep Calm and Carry a Katre

Last year, I was lucky enough to be invited to an intimate gathering at the Raffles Owners’ Lounge in Makati to celebrate Katre’s 10-year anniversary. Katre is a local brand started by Kat Erro, a stylist and makeup artist. She worked in London for a few years until she decided to return to the Philippines with having this business enterprise in mind. Katre boasts of leather handbags, totes, clutches, and accessories that are designed for clientele who finds satisfaction on luxury in quality. I love how they also offer monograms for bag tags and their other leather accessories.

Here are the pieces featured in the celebratory brunch. Congratulations, Katre!
