Inside Knowledge

When I work on a new idea, I think about the inside of my design just as much as the outside, so I thought it’s about time I posted on the subject. A plain bag isn’t a boring bag, in my opinion it’s a beautiful, minimalist design, that’s been well thought through inside, as well…

Handbag Horror Story: Don’t let this happen to You!

Do you have a contactless payment card in your purse right now? And… more importantly, is it safe? I you’re not sure what I mean, then check and see if any of your cards has the little ))) symbol (a bit like a WiFi symbol you see on your phone, but it’s on it’s side)….

Nova: A Design from the Archives

Here’s another photo of one of my ‘old’ designs… A real blast from the past! This black soft handheld bag was from my Nova collection which I first produced in 2002. The bags were all made in a super soft double sided faux suede with leather handles, base and trim. You may still have one…

Queen B Handbags

Woohoo, the first lot of my Queen B limited edition bags are on their way! Here are some quick photos taken at the workshop just before they were packed up to be shipped to me. We’re making this design in very small lots as firstly, it’s a limited edition (so no more than 10 or…

Nautica: A Design from the Archives

I love it when I spot one of my older designs from around 2003, still out and about and being loved. Here is a friend who is still using bags she had from me years ago. This is the ‘Nautica’ small handheld. I was inspired at the time by the zig zag stitching and big…

A New Design: Hand Delivered

It’s rare that I get to hand deliver a new design to a client but that’s just what happened recently when I met Belinda Grashion for the first time and hand delivered her new handbag. She’d only seen it online, so the anticipation here shows! I’m thinking, gosh – I hope she likes it! I think…

Saturday Shopping: Yellow is the colour of Summer

Victoria Beckham’s been seen in yellow. So too has the Duchess of Cambridge. It must be the new colour of summer, writes Lisa Armstrong in The Daily Telegraph. If you think that yellow isn’t for you, (my skin looks awful in it) you can still get your yellow fix in the accessories you choose. Lisa Armstrong…

A Business Bag for 2016

What does your business handbag look like? Does one bag do the trick or do you carry a handbag and another bag for your laptop & paperwork? Whatever your preference, I think the days of black and brown for business are, perhaps not quite long gone but definitely dwindling. A New Year, a New Look I…

Handbags & Holdalls: A New Review

Happy New Year! Have you got your new year wardrobe all ready to go? Sometimes it’s great to treat yourself to new things and that’s exactly what Carie Lyndene did just before Christmas. She sent me this photo of her new Shona Easton collection on her meeting room table at The Sucess Coach headquarters with…
