Brenda MacLeod: Glamour of the Bag

Today I’m showcasing the amazing handbag designer Brenda MacLeod

“Brenda Macleod is a luxury women accessories brand. The brand was created to provide good quality, ethical and stylish handbags made with great attention to detail for the modern and confident woman who loves functionality, quality and minimal styles.

Designed with passion in the inspirational Highlands of Scotland and handmade with love in Florence, Italy, every handbag is a fusion of quality, style and impeccable craftsmanship.

We select the finest leathers for our production, focusing on luxurious natural leathers. Natural leather is tanned using only natural vegetable dyes, there are no chemicals involved in the tanning process, no buffing and no artificial finish. This means that every piece of our leather is allowed to retain its individual and unique patina, and being such a natural product will age beautifully with deeper colour tones.”  Read More…

These are extremely well-made, timelessly classic, and look incredibly sturdy.  Prices range from £160.00 ($225.99) to £655.00 ($910.00) so while not a budget price, they look well worth the investment.

The designers at Polyvore were given a preview and asked to create fashion sets for a contest that Rebecca herself will judge – here is mine:

Rebecca Minkoff See Buy Wear collection

So what do the experts at Vogue say about this collection:

One gets the feeling that Rebecca Minkoff’s customer might be most familiar with the designer’s seasonal muses from, say, a Pinterest board. Still, if Minkoff can turn on her young clientele to the likes of Patti Smith or Françoise Hardy, as some of the icons she’s envisioned through her kicky clothes, more power to her.  Read more…


More sets from the contest:

My “Dimensions of Purple” Collection had a phone case that was a perfect fit for the purple leather skirt and black hankie top.  See the rest of the collection here:
