DUBAI: Palestinian-Chilean singer and songwriter Elyanna has been spotted toting a bag from Egyptian label Okhtein while in Los Angeles.
Founded by two sisters, the brand is one of the country’s hottest exports and is known for its quirky bags and scarves.
Okhtein, which means two sisters, was launched in 2013 by Aya and Mounaz Abdelraouf and has gone on to reach A-list heights.
Beyoncé sported one of its bags in 2018 and, since then, celebrities like Brazilian fashion influencer Camila Coelho and Canadian model Winnie Harlow have been spotted with Okhtein arm candy.
The 18-year-old music sensation posed next to a car and showed off her handmade “Minat” bag, which the brand said was inspired by the ancient Egyptian goddess Hathor whose jewelry always stood out. The post has attracted more than 39,000 likes.
Elyanna paired the caramel-colored clutch with blue tracksuit bottoms and a cropped top.
The rising star, who has been self-isolating with her family in California, recently dropped her eponymous EP “Ana Lahal,” which features Canadian-Lebanese singer Massari.
Elyanna went on Instagram to tell her 355,000 followers how excited she was about the release.
“This song is very special to me, it’s the first song I’ve ever recorded when I was 15 years old, and now we have the music video out, I’m so grateful. Thanks for everyone that’s supporting me,” she wrote.
