With the arrival of Spring comes the perfect opportunity to update our winter wardrobes with splashes of colour ready for some sunshine. And with the temperature warming and the evenings getting lighter, never has there been a better time for some new additions to our wardrobes. Here at The Amazing Blog we recently stumbled across Heidi Mottram, a London College of Fashion and Central St. Martin’s graduate with an impeccable background in fashion having worked alongside Vivienne Westwood and Matthew Williamson. Her new SS12 bag and purse collection is full of bright colours and quirky appeal and as well as being one of the first designers in the UK to work with Eel skin, she is also considered one of the best. With no two skins alike, each item is totally unique, and injects a whole lot of fun into any spring outfit.
Heidi has chosen a luck and fortune theme for her new collection, with the ‘Fortune Card Wallet’ and the ‘Talisman Ipad Case’ just a few of the style names. Each piece has a unique autograph with new silver branded, name plate on the outside and with a wonderful palette of eye-catching colours, the lemon sorbet is our favourite!
The collection for this season is limited to 30 bags and 50 purses, each piece including a certificate of authentication stating the serial number. If you’re interested in distinctive and fabulous colours, textures and shapes, have a look at their list of the UK and web stockists here. And adding in an extra token of good luck, Heidi Mottram will include a 4 leaf clover charm inside a pocket of every bag or purse!
Considering that, unlike traditional leather, Eel skin does not get damaged when wet, this is the perfect fail safe buy that will see you through spring, summer and beyond!
