Two of our favourite designers in flowers and handbags, Susannah Hunter and Nikki Tibbles, have collaborated on a project that might be of interest for your fantasy Christmas present list…should you have a generous budget.
Susannah and Nikki got together at Chelsea Flower Show this year in a mutual appreciation of each other’s work. For those who don’t know, Nikki is a florist of huge repute, she founded Wiid At Heart, you can follow her instagrams to see what lovely work she does, and Susannah we’ve written about before here.
She told us “Nikki appreciated our garden at Chelsea Flower this year and wrote a blog about it, and so the seed of a collaboration was planted then. It is fantastic to work closely with such a talented florist on this special bag – and I hope it’s the first of many collaborations together.”
The luxury leather bag is available in a stroke-ably soft oatmeal coloured leather and has a super-complex appliqué of a special bouquet Nikki created for the collaboration, with dahlias, red and black roses, garden roses, hypericum berries, and hydrangeas…there are 202 individually cut leather petals and 19 different nappa leathers. The final result is a densely layered and strikingly colourful unique design that we’re coveting deeply. Available here.
