The wait is over, Lulu Guinness is here!
We've been a fan of Lulu Guiness and her fabulous accessories for years, so we have been waiting rather impatiently for her new collection to arrive in store since we spotted them at a trade show last year. This week has seen the arrival of her gorgeously kitsch bags, including her iconic lips bag, toted by fashionistas the world over, including Alexa Chung, Florence Welch and Katy Perry. Take a look below at some of the AMAZING styles, including a statement holographic bag that winks. The perfect way of adding a bit of fun to any outfit!
We also have some amazing shoes on their way as well (don't worry we'll let you know when they arrive!)
If you're not familiar with Lulu Guinness here's a little snippet from her website:
"Founded when Lulu Guinness was 29 in 1989 with the concept of a briefcase for women which morphed into an idea for vintage style rose basket bags, Lulu's intention was always to be slightly outré and push boundaries.
Critical acclaim and praise from leading fashion industry figures was instantaneous, paving the way for Lulu Guinness stores as far afield as New York and Tokyo as well as London, and creating opportunities to be sold on the shelves of the world's most prestigious department stores,from Selfridges and Fortnum and Mason in the UK to Luisa Via Roma in Italy, Harvey Nichols Dublin and Galleries Lafayette China.
Her iconic designs have surpassed the role of mere fashion accessories. The Collectable bags have been described as 'tomorrow's treasures', becoming permanent fixtures in museums worldwide.The Florist Basket is in the permanent fashion collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and has also been exhibited in Sotheby's London and New York.
2006 saw Lulu awarded an OBE from the Queen and in 2009 she was awarded The Independent Handbag Designer Awards ICONOCLAST Award for Lifetime Achievement in Handbag Design.
Today Lulu still lives by the motto of her hero, the Surrealist artisan and fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli, 'Dare to Be Different' and the women who wear Lulu Guinness do just that.
Her creations are regularly seen on the arms of Helena Bonham Carter, Florence Welch, Katy Perry, Dita von Teese, Alexa Chung and Christina Aguilera, trailblazing women who dare to venture outside the parameters set by a predominantly trend led fashion industry.They are women with a fierce sense of humour and an even fiercer sense of their own femininity."
