A Feel-Good New Collection Taking You From Desk To Dinner

13 May 2022

Get ready for some of the most exciting designs from our new season collection. We can’t wait to show them to you, and the timing couldn’t be better seeing as we’ll be celebrating National Handbag Day this week. Discover styles that will take you from desk to dinner with a magical mix of all things feel-good. Bright colours. Metallics. Embellishment. The finishing touches will have you saying goodbye loungewear, hello glamour. In fact, there’s too much to fit into just one day. Maybe we should rename it National Handbag Month?

We spoke with Zizi, our Director of Design, about the inspiration behind this collection:

“I was drawn to the magic the month of October brings. This inspired the bold colour palette with the vibrant Cassis and sparkling metallics. Of course I had to include some classic Black, but brought in the magical element with pearl embellishments.”

 

Is this the colour of happiness? Look-at-me Cassis transforms our bestselling Manor Grove camera bag (top left). Every wardrobe needs one. And yes, that is a mini version of Liverpool Street 2.0. Good things do come in small packages.

We’ve styled this bright pop colour with neutrals because, guess what, bags like these aren’t just for parties. This season is all about brightening up the everyday. Literally.

Zizi notes the importance of a little bit of escapism in our accessories:

“It’s about embracing the whimsical and the wonderful. All showcased on our beautiful leathers, creating a bag you’ll cherish forever.”

 

And what's brighter than these molten metallics. Throw your hands up in the air if you love Mill Bay. Wear it as our beautiful model Natasha is showing here for daytime, then adjust the strap to clip it around your waist as a bumbag for a disco-inspired Friday evening look.

Another hands-free option is the perfect shoulder bag that tucks right under your arm. Like Cranwell Close. Because you never know when you’ll be in the mood for some impromptu dancing.

We know the classic LBB (little black bag) is a must, and one of the most versatile options for day to night wear. Our London Design Studio couldn’t resist adding something extra special to two of our favourite designs. Discover Cranwell Close and Manor Grove with new pearl stud embellishments. The world is your oyster with these on your arm. 

There’s so much more to see from our magical new collection. And don’t forget to check out our new limited edition Beano collection, mischief and fun have arrived.
