JUANA LLOP is a specialized firm whose eponymous founder and designer started up the DRAP brand back in 1987. Having already shown a vocation for this sector at a very young age, she has now become a benchmark in the world of evening bags and accessories for social events in Spain and internationally. Her designs have managed to conquer some 47 countries around the world, including Italy, the UK, Germany, Portugal, Russia, Japan and even the Persian Gulf states.
Innovation, measured boldness, curiosity and an interest in finding new alternatives for the world of evening and occasion bags have inspired some unusual and spectacular designs.
DRAP’s creations have proved tremendously popular with women in every different country. The firm’s products appeal to everyone, and this is the key to its success.
Today, as well as offering its most fundamental articles, women’s evening and occasion bags (featuring some 50 new models every season), the firm also designs, manufactures and markets other products along the same lines: shoes that match its handbags, wraps and stoles, tiaras and fashion jewellery. The vital accessories for the modern woman who wants to look chic, groomed and radiant at social events.
JUANA LLOP’s designs are created with the needs of the modern women in mind and their diversity of styles and personality; women who are increasingly demanding bags and accessories that are functional, stylish and innovative.
Her views: “It really gives me a buzz to think of a woman picking up one of my bags and appreciating its design, and really enjoying the feeling of wearing it and carrying it”.
Research is a constant feature in terms of materials and shapes. Every new project is a fresh challenge, full of enthusiasm and endeavour.
Her inspiration is fed constantly on a daily basis, whether by the effect of a colour, an atmosphere, a print or any other object that sparks off new creative ideas, which for JUANA LLOP have no limits: “I incorporate elements from all kinds of other sectors in my designs for handbags and other accessory ranges; it’s something I find fascinating and the results can be really good”
Quality is an absolute that is applied to every creation. The products are exhaustively studied and analysed, from the lining to the closing mechanism of every bag. The optimum volume, weight and lifespan of a handbag are hallmarks of JUANA LLOP and the DRAP brand.
