Rupert Sanderson and the new handbags: part 2

You’ve swooned over Rupert Sanderson’s shoes and read his wise words (if not read our last blog –we promise you’ll love it!) but now there’s a handbag too and it’s b.e.a.u.tiful!

You might have seen Rupert’s first handbag collection – they are wonderfully simple with a striking metal bar detail and super plush to touch. Can you tell that we’re obsessed?

Talking about the new venture, Rupert said: “I held off making handbags forever. I’m a shoe designer. But I decided a year ago to do a simple bag story and see if I can make it work. There will be minor changes and be made from different materials and they will hopefully become iconic.”

The inspiration for the new bags was those old-fashioned music satchels. He describes them as “a perfect piece of design” and built his collection with a flap and bar feature. The collection is currently exclusive to Selfridges (one of Snap Fashion’s 150+ affiliates don’t you know) and we REALLY want the red version!
