Anya Hindmarch on speed dial

anya
Anya Hindmarch has to be one of our favourite handbag designers here on Diva Darling. The UK based designer knows a thing or two about quintessential British style. Her pieces are classic and feminine, she combined THE BEST of everything we love and adore.

If handbags were people, Hindmarch’s collection definitely the beautiful, strong, quirky girl with tons of personality. Her collections are always inspiring, more than a little cheeky and 100% loveliness. We have featured 3 favourite Hindmarch’s pieces in this month entry and this season she has really outdone herself. (can’t wait to grab the “Crisp” pouch especially!)

This Mini Gracie first took my eye over at Bicester Village some time ago and I have been smitten ever since.  It fits a phone, keys, lipstick with slots for three credit cards. If you can grab this iconic Hindmarch piece, it is a great way to start off a designer bag collection for those who would normally only buy from the High Street and with leather bags in most stores costing £100 or more. Sometimes it is worth the bit extra to go for something that you will love and last years.

Galia Lahav - the small details...

Small-Details
If wedding gowns were made in heaven, they would look something like these devastatingly beautiful wedding dresses from Galia Lahav -a well-known Israeli designer. She exhibits modern style while emphasising the small details, the sewing quality and luxurious European imported fabrics. Prepare to swoon, ladies!

Her collection is a combination of the finest Italian luxurious silk satins, tulle and chiffon combined with the use of textured French lace, embroidery and embellishments. The most apparent of her distinctive collection was the incredibly sexy and beautifully sewn backless design, we adore them all. Gorrrrgeous!

We just love the way she interprets sophistication and angelic designs in all her intricate works of 2014 collection. They tell us stories of modern heroines and powerful fashion symbols drawn from a mythical and romantic world of once upon a time.

Timeless LM Cuir

Longchamp_LM_Cuir_Colorama1
LM Cuir, Longchamp’s new icon, introduced last year for Spring 2013 and this year Longchamp came in a dazzling array of shades. We had the chance to grab one velvety dark purple colour during the Christmas big sale (half the price!) and we totally in LOVE with it! Such a smooth and soft leather with buttery feel and of course, its well known embossed LM pattern which represent racehorses galloping and crossed reins.

There are 16 colours in total. Which colour are you? I will go for the bright and nude colour this Spring. Fresh colours fit all styles, weekend and casual look - don’t forget to pair it with your favourite oversized blazer or skinny jeans. You can carry any colour that presents your style with playful to classy one!

They feature on the two original LM Cuir tote bags, as well as on small leather goods, travel bags and a trolley case. All bear the signature details of the LM Cuir line: gold or silver metallic leather piping and a metal identity tag engraved with Longchamp heritage symbols. So classy!

Which colour will be yours this time?

For those who like to log things (like me with my baby girl’s essential), a medium size (36x32x1cm) is more practical & here comes the fun part - it has a detachable zip pouch for hidden cargo and suitable for fashionistas of all ages.
