The Boutique Gallery at Jaeger

The Boutique Gallery at Jaeger opened last month; I popped down on Friday to take a look at what they've got in store. As well as their own range of Boutique clothing, Jaeger have gathered together a fabulous selection of British designed accessories.
The Boutique Gallery is currently located on the first floor of their Regent Street store, but I think this fine selection of British designer-makers complement Jaeger's own main collection so well they should relocate it to the ground floor!

Nicholas King - for the greatest chunky bangles: jewellery featuring fabrics and trinkets encased in resin.
Angel Jackson handbags - oooo what a fabulous quilted tote bag. Angel Jackson's bags and purses are made in Bali in their own factory.  Although my primary focus in this blog is on UK-made products, I love this brand for their committment to creating a good working environment for their employees through a production system which they control, good craftsmanship and, of course, fantastic design.
Noble Isle - bath and beauty products that draw inspriration from the plants and landscapes of the British Isles. Relax in a bath with their Lightning Oak bath gel, while reading 'To Autumn' by Yeats.
Age of Reason - designer of my favourite punk owl scarf. SS13 scarves feature pirate queens, daisy-chain-threading punks, and the very wearable Over & Over electric coral scarf seen far right of picture below. At the back of the store are the very covetable Wilbur & Gussie clutches and bags.
Cabinet - previously blogged about here - glittering treats, rosey-gold metals, sparkling jewels, something to wear when you party in West Egg.
Mercy Delta scarves - silks and fine modal digitally printed

Guardian Fashion Wish List: Rachel Orme purse

Rachel Orme's beautiful Venus purse in green and cream is featured in Guardian Fashion Wish List. Great to see British designer-makers in the national press! Rachel is a regular at designer-maker fairs (see here and here) and all her purses and handbags can be bought from her website.
