Review by Gabrielle

For her test panel inside a Dutch company, Gabrielle tested a Minois bag for several weeks. She came across Minois as a brand and was excited to try it out and this is her review. She prefers to remain anonymous for privacy reasons.

A ladies bag full of technology!
Ladies with an eye for luxury and quality will definitely appreciate this product!

The Minois brand provides luxury handbags of very high quality, and equipped with high tech/innovative gadgets. Choice of various chic colors. I felt honored that I could test a copy of this exclusive ladies bag.

Flapbag caramel with light inside

The first thing that struck me was the wide choice of models.

The first thing that struck me was the wide choice of models. The leather models range from business to bags for chic occasions. All models are made/composed of a very high quality Italian leather.
With the adjustable strap length the bags can easily be set at any desired height, and can also be worn as a crossback.

In the model I tested (the Lena-classic flap), the strap at the back can be neatly adjusted to the ideal length.
The interior is nicely finished with a satin lining with a subtle pattern, and has, varying by model, several handy storage compartments.

Lighting is very convenient when you want to take something out of your bag in the dark

The electronic gadget of this brand is on the inside. This bag has a soft, bright interior lighting, which turns on automatically when the bag (with a subtle magnetic closure) is opened, a USB port for charging your phone, and a neatly concealed power bank.
Lighting is very convenient when you want to take something out of your bag in the dark, and you have, if you’re on the road for a long day, the possibility to charge your device via the built-in powerbank, or phone.
Do not forget to bring your own charger cable for the latter. In connection with the diversity of chargers, it is not included.
With the included wooden charger, in the form of a rectangular board, you can easily charge your bag.
Place the bag on the charger overnight and the next morning the bag is fully charged.
You can also charge your phone via the powerbank approx 3 times before it is empty.

My conclusion is: a very luxurious, Italian efficient bag, with some eye-catching gadgets, that after trying it you won’t want to get rid of!
