Just in the last week I have noticed an increasing number of designers using a classic sewing technique in their handbag designs. Welcome back whipstitching, the overcast stitch which combines two pieces of fabric together in a visible stitch. No discreet stitches for us, checkout the designers celebrating the stitch!
- Fendi’s Peekaboo whipstitched handbag. Net-A-Porter says it has been spotted in the arms of Olivia Palermo and Emma Roberts. Priced at £3000.
- Proenza Schouler’s whipstitched shoulder bag is available online at Harvey Nichols. Here this whipstitching is in silver and bronze leather trim to add that accent of metallic which is a strong trend this winter.
3. From Kate Spade we have the Hayes Street woven Isobel bag. It is made from a bright striped fabric and trimmed with black leather and has an optional shoulder strap, available at £358.
Have you spotted any handbags with the whipstitched edges? If so please do share by adding a comment below.
