We’ve taken something of a fancy to a new handbag range Aubrey, by Isla Simpson. This is Isla’s first collection and it’s very assured, being good quality with an attention to detail and classic-but-interesting designs. Isla is a Saint Martin’s graduate who’s been working in the industry for some years and although this is her first range it has already been bought by John Lewis, Fenwick, Debenhams, Harrods International and Arnotts, which is good- going for a first timer.
Better still it’s not stupidly expensive, with bags starting at £79 to £200, it’s also extensive with purses, clutches, bowling bags, shoppers and a good collection of laptop bags. You can catch a selection of styles, including the new summer stripe handbag and shopper at the brand’s pop up store in Monmouth Street London, which is there until the 24th May. Tempting.
