Sophia Webster steps into a new realm with the launch of her first and highly anticipated handbag collection. From everyday totes to cross body bags and evening miniature clutches, the collection embodies the same strong but feminine signature that has won the award winning designer legions of fans across the globe.
Inspired by a fantasy mermaid launderette, Webster’s new Spring Summer 2016 collection, CrazySexyNautiCool, expands the designer’s creative world further than ever before.
“It’s been a long-time wish of mine to extend the brand to include handbags,“ Webster tells Lane Crawford. “Like my footwear collection, I wanted the bags to be feminine, fearless and sassy. I found ways to combine materials, colour and print in unexpected ways, and put as much thought into the inside of the handbags as the outside.”
Webster’s designs have always appealed to a wide range of women, and the designer admits that she loves the satisfaction that comes with this. “They definitely appreciate the feminine sensibility in the way I design and the special details, whether it is the intricate flower detailing on a strap or a hand drawn print on the lining of a bag.” The customer is never far from her thoughts, she says, adding, “For this collection, I wanted there to be a real process of discovery for the wearer.”
