Spring ’19 accessories’ round-up

FASHION What’s in style this spring? Our team looks at bags, shoes and a watch that give you more of a special sense this season




Bags from Lautem have a quality, structured feel to them


Architecturally constructed

Spanish accessories’ brand Lautem prides itself on its quality, each item crafted by artisans in Ubrique, a small town in Cádiz. Designed by architect Elena García and businessman Roberto Vercellotti, Lautem believes that every­thing can be rethought and made from scratch. The Carrusel bag is available in an intense blue, but a lighter shade is also available, alongside a deep mauve and peach colour. Fans include Solange Knowles, Jamie Chung, and Emma Watson.

Petite and purposeful

Jasper Conran’s new small leathergoods collection is made in Italy from French lambskin, and available in blue, pink, red and yellow. Among the range are pouches, coin purses, compact mirrors, bookmarks and keyrings. The designs have leather linings and hand-painted edge stains. Prices begin at £65, available online at If flying to London, visit the Conran Shop at Selfridges, Chelsea, or Marylebone.



Red on red carpet

Part of Freya Rose’s spring–summer Empress collection are these Soraya heels. The British designer uses highly skilled Spanish artisans, and has gained herself a celebrity following with fans including Kate Moss and Pixie Lott. While many of her designs are aimed at the bridal market, we can see them looking just as fitting on the red carpet or a special night out. The Soraya designs have real mother-of-pearl and polished brass leather heels, and are also available in white for brides who might want something special for their walk up the aisle. Freya Rose ships worldwide via its website,




Sevenfriday’s The Blade watch has a design that conveys industrial might, and is inspired by a saw blade. It’s meant to be as tough as it looks, with a hardened glass box and anti-reflective coating. The calf-skin leather strap with yellow lining is standard, but it can be easily changed. The watch is chipped, and can connect to the Sevenfriday app where the wearer can register their watch. Recommended price is €1,100. •
