Bag Lady Loves: Beatrix Ong A/W 11 vintage style trunks
Beatrix Ong has cooked up something really special for autumn/winter 2011, and while we've been delighted with her collections for years, this one exceeds all our expectations in terms of design genius and in the size of the range, which is bigger than ever and full of delights.
The handbags on offer continue many of the most-loved themes from the spring/summer collection with the gold bee motif re-appearing on many of the pieces. But one thing that really grabbed our attention was this little range of vintage-style trunks, each decorated inside with colourful lining paper. Seen up close, the pattern on the interior is made up of dozens of scarlet 'flowers'; each made up of five shoes:
We absolutely love this graphic print, which was designed specially for Beatrix Ong by artist Natasha Law, who has collaborated with Mulberry in the past, designing elements of their set for runway shows. For those planning to make a purchase, the collection will be available via Jaeger stores from early autumn. Keep an eye out for some fabulous zebra-print handbags and small leather goods, too.
