Before Covid shut down the vibrant city of Melbourne, we took to the streets to shoot some of our exciting new luxury leather bags.
The aim behind the launch of PHOEBE was to provide a bag with the chic elegance of SIMONE, without the bulk.
Designed to be "Simone's little sister", PHOEBE has the class of SIMONE, and features the same luxe pebbled leather, but is slightly smaller making her ideal for those who find the SIMONE too bulky, or for those who don't like the flap and belt buckle design of SIMONE.
The aim of the shoot was to capture the chic belt detailing of the bag, the textured leather, and the size and shape of this tote.
We were, for the first time ever, launching a work tote in a new shade - beige - so we wanted to capture the true tone of this buttery, creamy hue in natural light.
We can't wait to see what you think of this new buttery beige shade of the new PHOEBE BEIGE - the reviews so far have been really positive and we hope you love her as much as we do!
JILLIAN a chic, best selling tote which features a classic "fit-it-all" shopper silhouette, with a hidden zipper pouch to store your valuables.
A luxuriously soft leather tote, JILLIAN is crafted from beautiful pebbled Italian leather. Super simple, low maintenance ladies will love JILLIAN's chic understated design.
JILLIAN is reliable and always there for you - hence it was named after my sister!
JILLIAN's top handles are long enough to be worn over the shoulder and comfortable enough for extended wear, making her the ideal choice for days shopping, traveling or for a long commute home. Perfect as a gym bag, work bag, laptop bag, or as an everyday shopper tote. JILLIAN is also great for travel as she lays completely flat when empty.
Time constraints meant we were only able to shoot our JILLIAN Black - but we are thrilled to announce this essential every day shopper will be available in four shades! That's right ladies! For the first time ever, we are offering one single bag in a variety of FOUR different shades. Along with Black, JILLIAN will soon be available in BEIGE, TAUPE and TAN.
Our newest crossbody VANESSA was designed to make the smart, modern women look and feel amazing, so we really wanted to capture the quality of the beautiful pebbled leather in the shots, which we think our photographer Tarlie did really well.
VANESSA was designed to be a seriously roomy crossbody. The idea was that she would be our first crossbody that could fit a full-sized wallet, sunglasses case, phone, keys and a few extras. It's often hard to find a crossbody that can fit a full-sized wallet and sunglasses cases, amongst all your other important things, without being too bulky. Removing any separators inside the bag, meant it's quite a large roomy cavity, so you've got space to carry your daily essentials.
VANESSA needed to be a worthwhile investment, we wanted her to be able to take you from season to season, so this is what we kept in mind when choosing our colour palette. In the end taupe and beige were added to the mix (along with black) to ensure the bag came in a variety of shades, each of which could be worn with summer or winter wardrobes. The VANESSA Beige looks excellent on denim and linens, the VANESSA Black really pops on colour, but looks equally chic with an all black ensemble, and the VANESSA Taupe goes with pretty much any outfit.
We hope you love this little sneak peak into our shoot and please comment below if you have any other questions!
