When it comes to leather handbags I simply love handmade unique bags that make a style statement. The smell of leather, the colours and styles. When we get a delivery from one of our handbag designers and each of the bags are wrapped individually I am like a kid at Xmas time, ripping at the paper to see what is inside!
When Coco Barclay Skirt bagsfirst arrived in our Bo’ness shop, I just had to have the Clutch My Skirt in fucshia and bought it before it even reached the shelves! I love the colour and style of the bag and I get loads of compliments on it when ever I use it. It has been to weddings, parties and even to the pub! My favourite designer leather handbag goes with anything and is great to add a splash of colour.
Coco Barclay works in the highest quality, ethically sourced materials and her designs are fun, stylish and practical too. Coco has brought together a group of British craftspeople to produce her designs, people who do what they do because they love it – and it shows.
One designer leather handbag I would love to own (but need to save some pennies first!) would be the Ameliafrom Steven Harkin. I love the structure of this handmade bag and it would look fantatsic dressed with jeans (or my new maxi dress!) for a day out with the girls.
Steven Harkin has been an artist, designer, maker and producer of leather accessories for some 25 years. He has gained international recognition for his creative style and his handbags are loved by public and private collectors. The Kylie clutch bag was named after Kylie Minogue who owns it in red patent leather.
I love the soft suede inside this bag and the selection of colours you can choose from, you could have one to match every outfit!
A leather handbag is one of the most important (and useful) accessories you own, so why not make a statement with yours?
