From there it was but a skip and a hop to purchasing bags (yes, that is plural) designed by Mimi. I favour bags with long straps and a zip along the top - so my hands are free for swatting pesky children, and my possessions stay safe as I hurtle around town - and Mimi has designed plenty of those over the years that have somehow found their way home with me. A particular favourite, not unlike the Delilah (see below) was made especially for me in fabulous orange leather.
I popped along to Cheshire Street earlier this week to take a look at Mimi's Spring Summer collection.
Delilah in tan.
Let me tell you all about it:
soft, slightly grainy leather,
one long strap cross-body strap,
and one shorter strap to wear bag on the shoulder
zip top, inner pocket with zip.
Gracie purse with long strap - brilliant! - on mannequin.
Little Peggy satchel in hard leather hanging on wall to the left,
and red and green ones on table (just seen)
Hero messenger bag hanging on wall
Louis laptop case and Oscar travel wallet (on top of cabinet)
Gloria clutch bag - especially like the sparkly leather in sorbet colours- which I have seen up close, and it is delicious (top left in cabinet),
and Lucy purses (bottom shelf in cabinet)
