Our favourite UK designers and the London neighbourhoods we think they belong to.
Sophie Hulme bags belong to what we call The City, or the business district. The structure and hardware of the bags let people know that you mean business. You can take them from the office to after work drinks at the pub – if you have any time for that, because you obviously have a very important job!
Alex Monroe fits in well in Bloomsbury, a neighbourhood where nature meets city life and where there are many gardens and parks filled with birds and squirrels. Look out for cyclists at rush hour – everyone around here seems to use a bicycle to get home from work!
The Cambridge Satchel Company makes us think of Notting Hill, full of quiet streets with pretty little houses in fun colours. The classic shape of the satchels is perfect for this area which is known for its antique shops and for the fun atmosphere around Portobello market.
T&F Slack Shoemakers’ creations go well with the arty feel of the East End of London. Their colours match with the flowers of the Columbia road market and their shapes are great for both the shopping and the bars around Brick Lane, which is a favourite hangout place for fashion students’ at the weekends.
