Yes, Fendi may have stolen the market with their bag bugs, but it seems that everyone’s favourite (newish) accessory designer, Sophie Hulme, is set to take over with her new breed of bag monsters.
Fashionistas across the globe have gone WILD for googly eyed bag charms, and actually Sophie Hulme has already released some in the last few months, but it seems for Autumn/Winter this year we are going to be eaten up (excuse the pun) by her novelty – and, may I add, incredibly fabulous and fun – bag monsters.
They just make you smile, which is the first hurdle with novelty pieces like these. The second being making them high enough quality to last, and Hulme is an expert with leather, so these zip up coin holders(?) will more than likely stand the test of time (we hope).
What’s more, we will see more of Hulme’s experimentation with colour with these stripes (when she launched, it was all about block colours), different shapes (rounder edges, which is something very different for her), and more smaller leather accessories too. It’s all just so infectious, exactly like her first generation of bags were.
More Hulme triumphs me thinks!
