During the weekend I met with the lovely Alex from the blog Alex Loves. It was great to finally meet her in person after three years of following her blog. It spend the next three hours talking about absolutely everything. Whilst I was stuffing a delicious warm bowl of porridge with banana and caramel, a little brass plate caught my eye. It was part of the most wonderful little handbag. Alex must have seen that something had caught my eye because she immediately spun round and said along the lines of "ahh yes a Sophie Hulme bag, they are everywhere and she is definitely making it". I was smitten by the whole bag; perfect size, what looked like lovely leather, the perfect amount of hardware and it was the creation of an 'up-and-coming' London designer.
I ended up going home and 'googling' her as one does and sure enough I had seen her bags before but it wasn't just bags. Her whole world was just perfect. Sober clothes, pops of colour, dinosaurs, brass hardware and gorgeous leather, strict edges with soft fabrics... I really do love it when a designer creates a universe so perfect and so appealing that you simply wished you were part of it. Added bonus, her entire collection is office friendly, which makes me like it even more.
