The new season is here! We caught up with our Creative Director and Co-Founder, Katie, to find out what’s in store for Autumn Winter 2022, what style she’ll be wearing all autumn long, and what she’ll be gifting her nearest and dearest!
Shop The Autumn Winter ‘22 Collection
What was the inspiration behind the Autumn Winter 2022 Collection? This season is all about luxury! We wanted to introduce more luxe textures, like gorgeous faux croc and pebble vegan leather, and build out a timeless yet statement colour palette with sumptuous plum and olives, that sit beautifully against our customer-favourite taupes and cognacs! From a design perspective, we’ve treated our customers to even more bag silhouettes to give them more styling options; think structured profiles and mini styles, the latter making for the most perfect gift to yourself or someone special. Of course, our must-have crossbody selection has been added to, as we know our customers adore them, and our personalisation offering still sits front and centre of everything we do. This is also the first season where we have online exclusives dropping throughout the year, which is super exciting!
Do you have a favourite design? How would you style it? That is a hard question - I’m obsessed with them all! But, the brand-new Oxford Holdall that’s coming soon really is a wardrobe hero, I think you’ll love it! It’s a new take on our iconic Weekend Bag, we’ve just moved it forward for the new season so it’s more of an everyday do-it-all bag. And the Quinn Mini Saddle Bag in faux croc - what a bag!!! It’s a true trend-led piece that has all elements of becoming a timeless classic.
Which new collection are you most proud of, and why? The Lila Collection is a stand-out collection for me. It’s the first bag where personalisation has been the inspiration. We designed it so the panel where you slip your hand through to hold, can be embroidered, making the initials the focus, which the design team and I absolutely love. It’s a limited edition style and exclusive to online, so this one needs to be snapped up quickly!
Which new season style do you think your customers will love? Without a doubt the Oxford Holdall! In my opinion it’s got everything you want (and need!) from a holdall; it’s roomy, chic, and just so easy to throw your stuff in and go!
If you could gift one piece from the new collection to your friends and family for Christmas, which would it be? The Millie Mini! It’s so effortless and cool, totally transitional to take you from day-to-night which is an utter essential when it comes to a crossbody. The cute mini profile also makes it the perfect gift for everyone on your list, from family secret santa, to your besties present.
