Flawlessly handmade with the best in black Italian vegetable-tanned leather and intricately detailed with gold-plated fittings, HOPE is a classic but unique staple for any woman's wardrobe. Inspired by Snyder's theories on ‘pathways thinking’ and ‘agency thinking’, HOPE enables people to disconnect themselves from past negative experiences and connect themselves to the possibilities of the future.
Hope is an optimistic state of mind that is based on an expectation of positive outcomes with respect to events and circumstances in one's life or the world at large. Snyder, Irving & Anderson’s Hope Theory (1991) suggests that a person who has hope has a positive motivational state that is based on an interactively derived sense of a goal, combined with a determined plan for reaching that goal. It is postulated that there are three main components that make up hopeful thinking: approaching life in a goal-oriented way, finding different strategies to achieve your goals and believing that you can instigate change and achieve these goals. Snyder also stressed the link between hope and mental willpower, as well as the need for realistic perception of goals. High hope individuals view barriers as challenges to overcome and plan an alternative route to their goals.
