Whenever we design a bag to match a particular shoe, we obviously try and imagine who will be using it. So for example, if the shoe has a definite nod to a vintage style or particular era, we’ll design the bag along the same lines, choosing a more vintage shape to work with. When it came to designing a bag to match our Isabelle shoe it wasn’t that simple, as whilst the shoe has a definite art deco influence with its distinctive fan shaped motifs, we’ve seen it styled with all kinds of looks, from vintage to city chic, boho to party. To that end we wanted to create a versatile bag which catered for all looks, so we chose a classic envelope shape clutch, with a neat magnetic clasp. We added the art deco style applique in metallic gold leather which contrasts beautifully with the coloured leather underneath. One thing we particularly love is the intricate stitching which goes around each teardrop cut out beautifully.
Whilst Iona was designed to compliment the Isabelle shoe, it’s a great bag to wear on it’s own to add some elegance to your accessories. The soft colours are really versatile, and the classic envelope silhouette is timeless. There is a detachable metal chain shoulder strap inside the bag which can come in very handy when you need your hands for more than just your clutch. Trying to balance a glass of prosecco, elegantly eat canapés, take a selfie and read the order of service- we’ve all been there!
Iona mint matches our Isabelle mint green shoes perfectly, but we also rather like it worn with Mimosa mint green too.
