Lulu Guinness – AW15 Preview

Lulu Guinness – AW15 Preview

For autumn/winter 2015, Lulu Guinness the original quirky accessories brand has a more sophisticated, pared-back feel to the collection. There is still signature Lulu in the collection including her lip clasps, red and black dominated colour palette, as well as glitter overload, but this season the designer has been more restraint with her designs.

It’s interesting while other brands including Anya HindmarchCharlotte Olympia and Kate Spade are riding high off quirky, fun, and statement fashion, Lulu Guinness has decided to take a step back and look more at silhouettes, fabrics – there’s everything from grainy leather to vinyl, satin and even velvet petal appliqué, as well as the introduction of prints into the collection, and the paint splatter monochrome print is a serious highlight from a fab AW15 collection.

Anya Hindmarch AW15

Anya Hindmarch AW15

I always seem to be drawn to the quirky and fun, especially when it comes to accessories, and Anya Hindmarch is killing it when it comes to injecting a little fun into fashion. For autumn/winter 2015, the British designer is embracing traffic, roadworks and road signs with her own unique humorous pun-packed collection. Think speed cameras, chevrons, highway code symbols, reflective surfaces, as well as a whole raft of service-station references from Little Chef to a cute Eddie Stobart lorry

Introducing: Village England – Gorgeous Handbag Brand

Introducing: Village England – Gorgeous Handbag Brand

I love discovering new handbag brands, because there is no such thing as too many bags, and I love it even more when it is discovered through the power of social media from a great conversation, and I adore it even more when the brand is British. So let me introduce Village England, a new-ish British accessories brand that is on the quest to design the perfect bag and I think looking at the autumn/winter 2015 collection they have cracked it. 

What I love about this label, other than the fab styles, has to be the passion of the founders, Eddie Knevett, the former head of accessories at department store House of Fraser, and Julia Dobson, the former UK boss for LVMH-owned French brand Céline, who both really just want to make quality bags that are not only functional but also fashionable, oh and I have to say I love that they like me love pockets!!!
