Janice always marched to beat of her own drum. To describe her style as eclectic was an understatement and to define her look on any given day could be perplexing for those with no imagination. However on a beautiful sunny day as Janice walked home from work there it was in the window at Gucci – the perfect companion for every outfit and one which truly spoke to her go-paint-something-geek-chic self, the Gucci Ophidia bag. Gucci Ophidia bag featuring the double G detail, an archival Gucci code from the 70’s. Visit: gucci.com

I remember my first trip to New York. I was living in London at the time, it was my birthday, and the first thing I wanted to do as soon as we landed at JFK Airport was to visit the Kate Spade store and treat myself to one of her bags. This was pre-2006 before Kate Spade sold the company and it turned into the multi-million dollar business that it is today. I remember walking into the store in Soho, and seeing it for the first time: a black fabric tote with the most exquisite embroidery on the front (not frou-frou at all, more vintage boho-chic), sassy pink lining on the inside and glossy cane handles that reminded me of an antique umbrella. I fell in love with that bag there and then. I’ve seen many similar stories shared on social media today following Kate Spade’s sad passing, I really hope she knew how much joy she gave to so many women.
Why wear your heart on you sleeve when you can wear it on your bag? The Marni Mrs Midi bag.
