I had the pleasure of previewing the holiday/resort collection from Lulu Guinness today. Those familiar with the designer, know that she's very whimsical. Her pieces are bold and not for the faint at heart.
For holiday, the inspiration was astronomy, fortune and tarot cards. A snakeskin star shaped clutch caught my eye. It comes in pewter and gold, which will be quite popular shades for the holiday season.
Various purses and totes had a silver-star closure, rather than the usual square or button shape.
If you love your shoes, as much as your bags Lulu has a whole line a suede, structured bags with enamel or embroidered shoe prints.
The above styles will be available around November. I will try to secure images of the bags so you bagistas can be the first customers to see them!
For more immediate shopping, check out the fall Lulu Guinness Couture collection. It's the glamorous 1950's style that Lulu always embodies in her personal style and the direction of her brand. But, this line really takes the glam factor to a new level. Rich in emerald, plum, red and black the handbags are reminiscent of a chicer era when jeans were uncommon and pantyhose were a must.
Today's woman can pair the suede purses or shoulder bags with jeans or a pencil skirt, and look equally breathtaking. I do warn you that actually holding one of these bags makes you want to embrace the fabulously glamorous fashion season we are about to have - dust off your brocade coat, slip on your silk gloves and don't forget your Lulu Guinness bag.
Have a bag-a-licious day!
