Earlier this month, I invited some of my closest blogger friends to the London Flagship boutique to discover our brand new AW13 collection. We were greeted with some delicious raspberry cocktails and tasty canapes and treated to a tour of the store before sinking our teeth in the main event: the collection presentation.
Our London Team kindly talked us through each new bag from the range, detailing materials, embellishments and passing them around - it was like being at a 1950's salon show. So decadent and luxurious! Both Kit and I were planning our next posts, wondering which bags would become the stars of our blog show while the others were already calling their bank managers to warn them of an incoming MCM spree!
"I'm a huge MCM fan and in terms of men's accessories they are way ahead of the game and have been for years. While the rucksack/backpack trend seems here to stay there is absolutely no-one offering anything like MCM. Everyone else's bags seem a little sad and depressed. I've never been one for subtlety or nuance (what's the point?) so I wasn't sure where MCM would go aesthetically as studs have been their signature embellishment for a while and it seems like everything on the high street has been covered in studs for the past few seasons even beanies (seriously, think about that). Well I never would have guessed that I'd be drooling over fur, snakeskin and bandana print bags but here we are.
As for me... Well, you can see my favourites below:
All Phenomenon, all the time - I could happily live with only those two bags... Plus as Warren said, the shopper is reversible so 2 in 1!
The Romantic Chandelier is even more luxurious in mink this season - true love.
And it looks so good on me, right?
You've met Marlene before? Well here she is again, as splendid as ever.
And of course, a list of my favourites wouldn't be complete if I didn't include my little baby: the First Lady Small Satchel in a cute pink - colour of the season!
Which is your favourite bag?
