1 What are the brands you usually use?
My handbag collection is quite vast, I collect from numerous different brands. I love Valentino, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Prada and Chanel of course! I try to purchase timeless pieces and stay away from purchasing too many seasonal pieces.
A handbag is such a great investment, I want pieces that stand the test of time.
2 What style of handbags is more comfortable for you on a daily basis?
I prefer to use a cross body style handbag for day-to-day use, as I walk most places, it’s great to not have to hold a bag in my hand all day!
3 What would your top purses be?
My Chanel Boy bag would be my largest investment piece, however I am loving my deep blue Valentino Rockstud Spike bag I purchased during Milan Fashion Week last year – it’s just to die for! I also absolutely LOVE my Olympia Le Tan box clutch – it’s the perfect evening bag.
4 Who is your favourite designer?
I don’t actually have a favourite designer! I love and appreciate pieces from each and every designer.
5 What is the handbag you had been wanting for a long time?
I would absolutely love a Fendi piece, their handbags are just so fun!
