Summer is Calling: Sophie Hulme Citrus Fruit Tote

The hype over Sun friendly attire has been mocking us since last years winter season, but now that we’ve made a break through into the spring season, warm weather accessories become a realistic manner. One of my favorite quirky styles for handbags has always been the fruit purse trend; they’re cute, fun, full of color contrast and attract many compliments.

Although I’ve always been delighted by an appropriately designed fruit-inspired handbag, today I’ve spotted a classic twist to the trendy style. Sophie Hulme knows how to design accessories with warm golden tones and unexpected features; on this specific Embellished Square tote, you will find an array of sliced citrus.

To begin with, the bed of fruit slices lays over a smooth and sturdy boxy tote, that’s easily carried via rolled leather handles or a comfortable body strap. Her signature gold plated hardware compliments the rich Tan color of this tote and a golden banana charm seals this spring collection. Asides the shimmery gold tones, it’s the elaborate arrangements of crystal stones over the citrus slices that will turn heads towards this tote.

Sophie Hulme Monsters Collection

Categories:Other Brands

sophie_hulme_monsters_collection2Fendi has her Bag Bugs, Sophie Hulme, her Monsters. And even though I’m technically a whole season late (these are from her F/W14 collection, after all), the flip side is that most of these are on sale now online at various sites, which means picking them up for a song should be a breeze (and an added bonus).

Depicting squiggly-faced monsters that are more cute than horrifying, they show up in a wide variety of SLGs and accessories, from round coin purses and card holders featuring leather cut-outs to a pair of key holders that come with an adorable monster on each end.

And because bigger is always better when it comes to anything fluffy, you can pick from one of 9 monsters which all come with their own names. There’s Alan, for example, with the scary teeth, and Phil, the studious one that comes with his own pair of gold sunglasses. Priced at around SGD185 each and made out of rabbit fur, they are a bargain compared to you-know-who.

So where can you get these babies? For starters try Net-A-Porter, then head over to MATCHESFASHION, which has a keyring and a round coin pouch in stock. You can also check out Farfetch and Shopbop, with the latter stocking both coin pouches and the smaller pom pom keyring.

Globe-Trotter + Sophie Hulme Leather Tote

Categories:Other Brands

globe_trotter_sophie_hulme_leather-toteWhat’s big, black and hard? And after you’ve dug your mind out of the gutter, take a look at the new Globe-Trotter + Sophie Hulme Leather Tote, a collaboration between the luggage maker which started back in 1897 and the British fashion designer best known for her wacky creations.

Measuring a boxy 23 cm by 21 cm, you’re basically buying a tiny piece of luggage given the Sophie Hulme-twist, a long shoulder sling that’s also removable, a leather bow that sits on the handle just so that it’s whimsical enough, and a gold-tone hardware luggage tag that’s a nice added touch.

Price at GBP975 and now available online via Net-A-Porter, it’s the perfect alternative to everyone else’s same-old same-old mini handbags that are all the rage now. In other words, if you want to stand out and be that bit more different, this could be the one for you.
