  • If you’re a fan of Queen Elizabeth’s style, you’ll know that Launer is her go-to handbag brand – in fact she is rumoured to have 200 of them.

    Although she owns the bags in several colours, her preferred style is a structured black patent with handles, which goes with pretty much all of her colourful outfits.

    But while you might think the heritage British brand is better suited to customers around the Queen’s age range, think again, because it’s going millennial on us.

    You see Launer has just introduced an online interactive service that lets you customise its core five styles as well as card-holders in colours ranging from neutral black and beige to bright colours worthy of Instagram.

    When you go on their site, you’ll get a 3D image of your preferred style and a huge selection of colours and leathers, and then you can mix and match to your heart’s content: body, gusset, handle, and flap can all be individually altered.

    We don’t know about you, but we love the idea of a bright green and pink bag, the Queen loves a bright ensemble after all.

    Each handbag is handmade, so once you’ve picked your favourite, you’ll receive it in 21 days.
