Post after post I have been going on about colour as the most important trend setter of the season. And one colour trend in particular is bright neon shades. Earlier this year I have already blogged about bright handbags but this time I have a new addition to the collection – DesignInverso handbags I discovered at Luisaviaroma.com. At £78 they have the designer feel without the high price tag. What I absolutely love about the range is that they are a clever imitation of infamous Chanel shape – quilted and with a long chain. Where is the clever, you might ask? Well the handbags are PVC and not leather plus the colours are world apart from the usual black and red Chanel flap bags we see everywhere. And that is what makes them fashionable – playful and fun interpretation of one of the most classic bags making it not just practical but totally trendy. So pick your favourite shade and wear it with, well, more or less anything for the fashionably required splash of colour!

I love discovering new brands. And this week my find came from thecorner.com. There I came across an Italian bag range created by a talented lady Benedetta Bruzziches whose sewing techniques passed down to her from her mother (I am always in awe of craftsman families who preserve their skills for generations to come).
My pick from the collection are two beautiful and perfectly crafted leather bags (£520 each) – completely identical in shape the two could not be less similar in their feel. Moss green bag on the left has a vintage feel and reminds me of luxurious upholstered and quilted sofas from late 18th century while bright snake skin bag on the left could not be more contemporary – it fits well with current season’s trend of bright and patterns!
Here is my find of the week! Have you discovered a new brand worth sharing recently? If so comment below, I will blog about it and give you a special shout out!
