Featured - Designer Bag Collection

🕤 5 min read 

We all have different priorities when it comes to fashion. Some of us look for practicality and comfort, some for sustainability and ethical practices and others are all about style. Here at Pure Luxuries London, we aim to tick all these boxes, and with our ‘Designer Collection’ you will never have to sacrifice style for practicality and sustainability.

The ‘Designer Collection’ features a range of timeless designs with classic silhouettes for bags that will stand the test of time, but the magic doesn’t end there! Keep reading to find out why I think this collection has a must-have accessory for every wardrobe!


Gold Standard Leather

Nothing says luxury quite like gold! Each ‘Designer Collection’ bag is crafted from LWG certified gold standard leather, with a luxuriously smooth finish. Selected for its durability and natural patina, gold standard leather doesn’t just improve the quality of the finished product but also reduces the impact the production process has on the planet.
Gold standard leather elevates every design, from backpacks to cross body bags. One of my favourites, the ‘Delfina’ backpack, takes a practical and classic design and transforms it into a chic and stylish accessory with a stunning multi-toned finish.


Vegetable-Tanned Leather

Like many of our other collections, every ‘Designer Collection’ bag is dyed using vegetable-tanning processes, eliminating the use of chrome-tanning procedures and the harmful effects this has on the environment.

Alongside being more sustainable, vegetable-tanning achieves a beautifully rich and multi-toned patina, reminiscent of traditional bespoke Italian leathers. This method of dyeing is also kinder to the leather itself, allowing it to age beautifully while remaining soft and supple, so you can enjoy your Pure Luxuries London purchase for years to come.
I think the ‘Britt’ handbag in ‘Italian Tan’ looks particularly stunning with the natural gradient from vegetable tanning - so much so, that I had to bag one for myself! With a versatile and timeless design, it is spacious enough to carry everything I need and the adjustable carry options mean it is comfortable to carry around all day long.


100% Natural and Untreated Cotton Linings

It isn’t just what’s on the outside that counts! With the ‘Designer Collection’, every bag is lined with 100% natural and untreated cotton. Cotton is renowned for being stronger and longer lasting than polyester linings, not to mention much more environmentally friendly.
The contrast between the natural, untreated cotton lining and the black leather on the ‘Adelina’ tote bag is contemporary, chic and versatile. With two interior slip pockets and a large central compartment, there is plenty of room for everything you need to get you through the day.


Zero Plastics with All-Metal Zips and Fittings

Our zero-plastics policy doesn’t end with 100% cotton linings, just like our other collections, each bag in the ‘Designer Collection’ is furnished with stunning gold-coloured metal zips and fittings. Not only is metal much more robust and secure than plastic, but once again, it is much better for the planet!
I particularly love the way the metal fittings stand out on the ‘Caterina’ cross body bag in Italian Tan. With a gold statement zip to the front of the bag and the re-designed Pure Luxuries London logo, exclusive to the ‘Designer Collection’, the 'Caterina' is the perfect way to add a little luxury to your day.

The Perfect Addition to Every Capsule Wardrobe

With fast fashion being cancelled, we are all looking for more sustainable ways to stay on trend. Capsule wardrobes are one of the easiest ways to save money, reduce your carbon footprint and look chic and stylish every day.

Investing in high-quality pieces that will last a long time is much more financially efficient than splurging on items that won’t survive the next season. Accessories are also one of the most simple ways to take any outfit from drab to fab!
While the colour selection may not be as bold and bright as some of our other collections, you can’t go wrong with classic black or versatile Italian Tan for the perfect everyday handbag. So, if you have been thinking about trying out a capsule wardrobe, perhaps the timeless and practical silhouette of ‘Penelope’ is the perfect accessory for you!
