See you in the summer!
As summer nears, many people get ready to change their closets for the new season, making room for the more colourful clothing and accessories that goes perfectly with the hot weather. In the following lines, we are going to talk about summer fashion and the patterns and colours that most represent it.
The “Flower Power” and its concept as a summer trend
Today this summer style comes in countless designs by different brands for you to enjoy under the sunny days, but in this article we are going to focus on the beautiful concept of “Flower Power”.
The concept of Flower Power is an important summer fashion trend first used in the early 60s. It appeared in America in the 1960s and 1970s, during the protests demanding equal rights for every citizen, which were a tumultuous yet interesting time in history for social change.
Some protestors during this era were nicknamed as “hippies”, short for the term “hipsters”, and they were the first to wear flowers.Thereby the young pacifists of the 70’s imposed a lifestyle that quickly moved to the catwalk using different prints, geometric shapes, psychedelic shapes and lots of flowers.
And since that moment we still can’t get enough of it. Thus this 2019 is again our favourite summer fashion trend: leather bags, t-shirts, skirts, pants, swimsuits… The combinations and possibilities are literally endless!
Why Flower Power is the perfect trend for summer
In summer the flower power restores femininity and romance with the fresh looks that flowers always give away. The flowers’ combination recreate a new fashion concept inspired by nature with new codes, which lose the rigidity of the previous season and give renewed air to the clothes and accessories.
Although sometimes it can go unnoticed or it can disappear for a while, the concept always come back. For this summer of 2019 the flower power concept has surfaced again and doubtless you will see it everywhere: streets, shops, online…
Flowers’ pattern for bags
The flower blooming in Untitled Barcelona this summer 2019 is from our garden of imagination and results in a special collection under the name of Lotus Flower, representing our concept of purity and beauty, through our boho leather bags.
The amazing and magical Lotus Flower is a classic flower reinvented with a beautiful handmade expressive art by our artist Mauricio Ballesteros, using different tones of white, orange and soft purples bringing chic optimism to your wardrobe and to your life with our handmade boho bags.
We love the origins of freedom and changes that the concept FLOWER POWER transmits and we want you to discover our collection of handcrafted bags.
Being always you, beautiful, pacific and pure, like our lotus flower.
Chakras are centers of consciousness, focal points of energy that have a direct, immediate, and profound effect on our daily lives. The chakras were named by ancient cultures, which long before modern science, knew that all living things carried a life force with them. So they called these forces or centers of energy that move inside us as the 7 chakras.
The chakra balancing using positive energy stones
It is said that when the chakras are balanced you become empowered: you are able to be a compassionate, conscious and capable human being.
The effect of well balanced chakras often translates into a feeling of well-being, relaxation, increased vitality and embodiment of oneself. Therefore chakra balancing is the process of restoring a harmonious flow of energy across the chakra system.
Also when we talk about chakra balancing we may actually refer to various techniques and meanings, thus a commonly accepted definition of chakra balancing is:
“the process through which the energy of the chakras is brought to a well functioning and harmonious state.”
The energy stones
The premise of working with chakra stones or crystals is that each stone has the purpose of magnifying or balancing the energy center you’re focusing on. In order to choose your perfect healing crystal, you have to look at several stone attributes, including its energetic quality and colour. Since everything is moving, it’s essential that our seven main chakras stay open, aligned and fluid. Chakras are the energetic wheels that keeps us standing with strength in live and give us amazing ways for healing ourselves, then wearing chakra jewelry is an original way to balance your chakras.

Untitled as a chakra clothing store
Our story as a chakra clothing store is to empower women, creating Untitled Barcelona as the encouragement to develop a personal concept and visual language on the “Chakras” philosophy defined through colours, screen printing, art and stones.
We are exploring all 7 Chakras with different collections, combining symbols in the bags design and using positive energy stones, which conceive chakra clothing through healing bags and balancing jewelry.
Untitled Barcelona is a creative process on self reflection and visual moving idea, with the underlying concept that the bag you wear has a lift you up message, a declare love to the one.
Why we couldn’t live without shopping online nowadays?
Only 20 years ago most of us were oblivious to the existence of the internet as a place to shop, but it was not until the invention of the World Wide Web (by Tim Berners-Lee) that widespread consumer use of the Internet became a possibility. Thus the Internet has changed completely the way we shop fashion, transforming the way that customers shop and re-shaping the high street as a result. Many of us now shop from our homes and we feel free to do it whenever or wherever we want, so it’s not surprising that the number of online shoppers in 2018 in Spain was higher than 19 Million of people.
Today we can find an online fashion with nearly every retail product available, like handbags, shoes… and more at the best prices and we can do so from any location without worrying about going to the store. No wonder it’s still one of the fastest growing industries in the world.
Digital Marketing for Fashion Brands
The digital environment has a growing effect on consumer’s mind and buying behaviour, giving a freedom of decision based on public interaction or opinions. Even though the fashion marketing is present in the digital environment, customer’s buying behaviour may not be influenced and controlled by the brand. Why? Because when customers make a buying decision, this is probably highly influenced by: the interactions with search engine, recommendations, online reviews and other information provided by the Internet.
Then the E-commerce in fashion has also brought down political and physical barriers, giving in someway everyone in the world an equal playing ground for their market, so everyone can put their products on sale through the e-stores (website dedicated to selling of product, virtual stores or even social networks like Instagram). The rise of the internet commerce in fashion during the last years has reshaped labor, commodity flows and also global politics.
The fact is that the success of e-commerce in fashion businesses has the potential to influence the market and there are still many changes to come.
Internet as a world showroom
Today we can say that Internet is a world showroom for brands, where they get both the opportunity and the place to explain and present their products through a virtual world. By this way brands create a space full of emotions, objects and words that might get the attention of the consumer by their social media or website.
Just like that brands are creating kinds of communities, following them and expressing their personal comments on the products and the brand world.
We are an online chakra clothing store: Buy our products wherever you are!
We are the generation of a cloud fashion economy that allows the freedom of expression for every designer and buyer. This is reason why in Untitled Barcelona our virtual fashion world transmit the colours of emotions for those women that feel unique and free. We invite you to come and join our online community. Feel free to share your comments with us!
Handbags have been essential to daily life ever since people have had something precious to carry around with them. The items carried have changed over time, but like the designs or materials used to create the bags.
The ﬁrst handbag mention comes from the 14th century
The very first handbag mention in written literature comes from the 14th century, where the embroidery and jewels adorned these articles and were used to show status- the richer the person, the more elaborate the bag.
In the 16th century fashion dramatically changed and handbags took on more of an air of practicality, which was strongly reflected on the use of everyday materials such as leather. In the 17th century appeared an enormous variety of bags, with different sizes and shapes, and both carried by fashionable men and women. At that time young girls were taught embroidery as a very necessary skill to make them marriageable and we see the rise of beautiful and unique stitched artwork in the handbags of that age. By the 18th century women started to have a different bag for every occasion and every fashion magazine had arguments on the proper carrying of these purses, showing that a handbag was a fashion trend.
Despite all its history, the term “handbag” was not used for the first time until the early 1900’s and generally referred to handheld luggage bags usually carried by men. These were an inspiration for new bags designs that became popularised for women, including the details of complicated fasteners, internal compartments and locks. There was an existing demand for new purse styles that were more durable and could hold more items. By the time, traveling was in vogue, and this resulted in luggage makers beginning to create bags for women to use while travelling on trains.
The history of the handbag is the story of women
The woman’s handbag as we know it, however, is a much more recent development in the long, humble history of the bag. As the years progressed and handbags became further entrenched in women’s daily lives, they became a barometer for the times, adroitly reflecting the sensibilities of the women who sported them and the culture in which those women lived.
The history of the handbag is then the story of women: women’s changing tastes, priorities and roles in society. Handbags have thrived in times of excess and survived in times of scarcity, and even defied repeated calls by feminists to replace them with pockets.
Overall, the variety and adaptability of the bag are the very components which allow its evolution to creatively persist.

Nowadays we find infinite types of bags, with a great variety of materials, shapes and colors, and all of them can be used to carry personal items such as money, makeup, electronic devices and more. Untitled Barcelona artists’ design handbags for women, with a message to empower the divine feminine and full of magic and art.
We cannot divine the future of the woman’s handbag, but for sure today is about expressing yourself through it and to feel comfortable with the bag you wear. That is the main reason why our team designs handmade bags in Barcelona, where we invite you to discover our collection and understand are way of thinking and creating.
When did the term Bohemianism was born?
The concept of boho comes from the term Bohemianism, which first emerged in the early 19th century during a time when financially struggling artists, writers and musicians began to populate the lower-rent, lower class, Romani neighbourhoods of France. The term mentions an unconventional way of life, suggestive of people with shared interests in art, music and even spirituality. Being like a gypsy, it is mysterious and without the intent of extreme fashion.
Since that moment, Bohemian style has been, for over 200 years, an exotic alternative to the accepted fashions and is generally associated with artists, writers and intellectuals.
How do you dress like a “boho chic”?
Bohemian style consists of loose, colourful clothing and has been known nowadays as “Boho chic and hippie style”.
Though fashion often embraces Boho chic, the life itself – the yearning for individual freedom, the rejection of modern materialistic concepts, the dream of utopian ideals, and production of hand-crafted goods remains a powerful alternative to mainstream culture. Now, it’s a way to express individuality. Typically characterized by splashes of colour, ﬂowing fabrics, patterns, ﬂowers and excessive accessories, the Boho chic style allows individuals to express their desire to break away from social norms and live unconventionally.
The “bohemian chic” in and of itself is a contradiction since it combines the dressed down and frugal aspects of bohemia with the smart and more expensive accouterments of chic fashion. So fashion designers have increased the embellishment, craftsmanship, and material quality of their output, making it trends for years. While its prevalence cannot be denied, few women are turning to the bohemian trend in order to make a self-declarative statement of identity.
The positive thing here is that bohemian styles happen to be in sync with the kind of relaxed, wearable silhouettes that the modern woman favours and, as such, the trend is welcome in wardrobes around the world.
The popular Boho Style in music festivals around the world
The Bohemian lifestyle also has close ties to the celebration of music, and the Boho style is thus popular at festivals across the world, beginning in the ’60s and ’70s with hippies and the free-spirited who also encouraged an unconventional lifestyle.
Today there are a large number of festivals in which “boho fashion” is one of the main protagonists. All the prints and possible designs are welcome, combined with a thousand accessories such as boho leather bags, vintage sunglasses, amazing jewelry, an infinity of different types of hats, handcrafted leather backpacks… All of them liberal and bohemian!
The famous festival Coachella, held in California (United States) is undoubtedly the boho festival par excellence. It stands out for the elaborated and stylish looks of its assistants, which contain all the elements mentioned above.
Untitled’s passion for Boho Style as a brand
We as a brand feel the connection with the bohemian lifestyle as it’s made of agents and change. We love to challenge and push boundaries and to make a boho leather bag both authentic and artistic.
Untitled Barcelona is Boho and Chic: Artistic, relaxed & liberated. That perfect mix of lifestyle in a bohemian culture that screams the style of freedom and colourful creativity all around by breaking the boundaries. Walking on the streets with the message of art and self-empowerment as an individual of freedom. Our boho leather bags collections are made from the best artisanal materials and handmade with love from the best artist of Barcelona.
Fashion is a concept that represents a universal subject, a language understood and spoken by many people, which started many decades ago. Thus the idea was created in the modern industry, starting in the 19th century where it was based around firms o fashion houses run by individual designers.
Fashion trends of yesterday and tomorrow
Fashion is clothing or accessories that become a trend, which tends to reflect a behaviour, mindset or circumstance. Becoming a trend means that it is hip or popular at a certain point of time and usually refers to a certain style in fashion. In this way we can say that fashion trend is a creative wind that blows with the expression of time, expressing moods throughout the message of colours, fabrics and design.
Since the birth of the concept of fashion, we can affirm that there have been odd fashion trends all over history, trying to tell a story about the people of that time culture.
Today, fashion trends start with fashion designers, who design a spring/summer or fall/winter collection each year based on the cues and inspiration they’ve gathered throughout the season. These kind of cues can include: popular culture, celebrities, musicians, politics, nature or something else entirely different, like spiritually.
The evolution of fashion and the emergence of street style
During the last years the world of fashion has been changing just as rapidly, while also facing severe individual, social and global challenges.
Although timeless descriptors such as quality, personality, style, comfort, beauty or elegance are still firmly linked to the notion of fashion and luxury, a new framework of aspirations and values defines today’s meaning of fashion which is seemingly different to that of previous generations and perceptions.
Today the new frameworks are the street style that has become just as major as the runway shows themselves or the social media concept, because fashion is about people. Fashion involves perception, self-expression, memory, creativity and social interaction. Fashion reveals and shapes our emotions, personality and culture.
Untitled’s fashion point of view
Inside Untitled Barcelona we believe in fashion because allows freedom of speech, both for the creator and the wearer, giving them the possibility to express whatever they feel.
We love to express the mantra I AM through our healing bags and chakra clothing, representing fashion as a powerful communication tool focussing not only on clothing or accessories itself, but also on the complexity of human behaviour and communication.
In Untitled we focus on creating handmade bags with original and exclusive designs, which carry the passion of our work and represent everything what we feel about fashion as a way of communicating.
