I’ve got very exciting news for you: I’ve found the bag of the season, and it’ll go with everything. You are most welcome. Even better, it’s by the next big it brand, meaning you’ll be well ahead of the game.
Introducing the Whistles x Mlouye collaboration, a range of luxury architectural bags that will look just as good on your shelf as they will on your person.
That’s because the Turkish bag brand’s creative director Meb Rure actually comes from a furniture design background, which is reflected in the curved details and craftmanship of the bags.
The exclusive capsule collection comprises six limited edition bags, all handcrafted in Turkey, and the colours have been lifted from Whistles’ Autumn Winter 2019 collection, combining soft nudes with bright yellow hues, glossy black and rich emerald green tones.
My favourite is the tan croc lantern bag, though the black patent helix bag is a close favourite.
‘We are delighted to be collaborating with Mlouye – not only to offer their stunningly beautiful crafted handbags to our customer, but to showcase the brand exclusively in the UK for the first time. Mlouye’s brand vision is focused on creating timeless products that are unique and intelligent in design. This resonated so much with us at Whistles, where design, function and our commitment to change are core values for both our brand and customer, said Nick Passmore, Whistles creative director.
The bags are priced between £250 and £420, launching next week, so sign up now as I predict a sell-out.
