The afternoon sun is still shining on London – I wonder if this is a first for this late in September…sticking with firsts, the high number of handbags spotted on display at London Fashion Week Festival. What a delight to get up close and personal with these five lovely designers.
The showroom was busy as expected and these five bag designers all had something different to offer:
Alfie Douglas – minimalist leather bags that are practical (some can be worn in more than one way) and catch the eye!
Eddie – a British brand designing premium leather goods, handmade in Italy. Loving the colours of their range and the Highclere backpack is red hot!
Florian of London showed a bag collection with the most fun designs and textures – think understated palettes and bold designs. Here’s looking at you kid!
Kate Sheridan uses the finest Italian vegetable tanned leather which is dyed without any chemicals. At the Festival these two bags stopped most of the crowd passing by.
Tea and Tequilla as their name suggests is a pairing of a British and Mexican team, Millie and Sarah. The Mexican inspiration is obvious but what you don’t see in this pic is the beautifully woven lining in bright colours, bringing that Mexican design throughout the bag. Check out the pink flamingos and skull head bags online!
So if you weren’t in London this weekend and you missed out on the Festival, use the links provided at the top to check out these fresh bag designers. I’m looking forward to Spring and summer’s bags already.
