There’s an art form to a good handbag, from the shape to the colour, to the fabric, and even the way it ages, and I’ve found in recent years that there are number of emerging British labels that are doing amazing things, such as Harriet Sanders, a graduate from the London College of Fashion who makes all her bags by hand from her Cheltenham studio. So, I’ve decided to start a new series, Bag Stories, where I showcase these amazing handbag labels, give you a taste of what inspires the designer, how and why they got into fashion, and why
I’ve always been fascinated with the relationship between fashion and art, both it seems to enhance one another, and I’m obsessed with new watch brand, Dial Watches, which has merged the two worlds to create a beautiful timepiece.
