Maile Wilson, a professional photographer for over fifteen years, started Epiphanie four years ago. At the time, there were no cute camera bags for women. They didn’t exist. She would end up leaving her gear at home or shoving it into her purse wrapped up in whatever was nearby, because she hated lugging around a bulky man-bag. So that is when she decided to create her own line. Epiphanie launched in 2009 with 10,000 people already on the waiting list. Since then the collection has expanded from three to twelve styles and over 60 different bags, and there are lots more to come!
Sweet Southern Lovin had the opportunity to work with Epiphanie to review the Olive Lyric. The Olive Lyric was delivered in its own dust cover (not pictured on bag). The body of the bag is constructed with water-resistant, high-quality synthetic leather. It has a lovely braided shoulder strap as well as a padded cross body strap. The braided shoulder strap has a drop length of 13.5″ and the padded cross body strap has a drop length of 51″. It has a total of five openings. Your main compartment area, one inner zipper pocket, two outer front zipper pockets and one outer back zipper pocket. The main compartment also comes with 3 velcro panels that can be adjusted to any position for maximum customization. The interior is made of ultra-soft lining with extra padding for maximum equipment protection. The exterior bag measurements are 13″L x 4″W x 15″H.
I was super excited when I found out Sweet Southern Lovin was going to be able to review an Epiphanie bag. I am not only a part-time photographer, but also a mommy that loves to take her camera everywhere. It gets kind of hard though lugging around a purse, diaper bag and camera bag. With the Epiphanie bag though I can put everything a mommy on the go with a camera would need to. I was so amazed at how much can actually fit into this bag. Not only that, it is just superbly gorgeous. I love that is comes with two straps. As a mommy on the go with a camera, I can attach the padded cross body strap and put my baby on my hip. I am so in love how stylish the Epiphanie Olive Lyric bag is. So in love that I even carry it as a purse when I don’t have my camera. That is the cool thing about the removable panels, you can turn it into an everyday bag! I love being able to carry my gear with me, knowing it is going to be protected, but I can also fit the essentials I need in there too. It is amazing the room the Epiphanie Olive Lyric has.
If you are in need of not only a camera bag that is going to protect your gear, but let you be stylish at the same time, then Epiphanie is for you. Epiphanie bags are extremely well made and just beyond gorgeous. Their selections are just unbelievable. Bags to go along with anyone’s style.
