Lulu Guinness–Summer Handbags 2012
What I didn’t realise about Lulu Guinness until I visited her showroom was that apart from being beautifully made, clever, idiosyncratic, whimsical and totally original, every Lulu Guinness bag I hefted (and there were a lot) was beautifully light.
For me weight is an issue, as I tend to carry everything but the kitchen sink in my bag whatever the season, so anything weighted down with zips and studs and too much detail is a total no and buying online can difficult as very few websites tell you how much a bag weighs. With Lulu Guinness you don’t have to worry about that, as you can be sure that whatever arrives will look as it does on screen and will be easy to carry all day.
This is just a selection of what’s on offer at Lulu Guinness. Many of the prints and shapes are available in other colours, so if you see something you like just click through and see what else is on offer. This seasons colours are a light milky brown, stone, red and of course black, and prints feature cameos, spots, shop windows, lips and so much more.
My favourite? The large leather stone Romilly bag above – I’ve been coveting that one for quite some time…………..
