Zandra Rhodes talks about her new bag collection
Legendary fashion designer Zandra Rhodes was at Pure London for the launch of her Spring/Summer 2011 Handbag and Shoes collections and we caught up with her to get some insight into her inspiration behind the new bag range.
The colourful creative told us the collection contains a mix of hues. She said “I’ve always loved bright colours; I love lavenders, turquoises and as far as I’m concerned pink is always in!” We couldn’t agree more! There are also plenty of practical black bags in the line which, as she says, “always looks chic”.
A rose gold metallic material features heavily throughout the collection which is definitely shaping up as a shade to watch for next season.
On her inspiration Zandra said “now we’re going through a period where shoes and bags are vitally important to the outfit”. And not only are her bags style statements, they’re totally practical and brilliantly priced too.
There are some great sized work bags that have flirty frill trims, making them businesslike yet still feminine. Even the evening bags, like the gorgeous metallic shell shape numbers, are roomy allowing you to slip a pair of flats into them for emergencies!
We can’t wait to get our hands on them...
