Fashion Week favourite Sophia Webster set to launch her first handbag collection

Kooky accessories designer Sophia Webster will be launching her first standalone handbag collection this month, just in time for the opening of her eponymous Mount Street store in London. The store’s interior will include an ornate custom-made glass chandelier in the shape of a flamingo - the perfect symbol of her outlandish designs and quirky-cool aesthetic. And now die-hard Webster fans can add to their collection with her new handbag line.

The limited-edition collection will comprise of key features from Webster’s SS16 under-the-sea theme that saw her pastel watery creations come to life in a mermaid launderette. Featuring five styles of bags, including the ‘Romy’ leather bucket bag, and a printed‘Izzy’ tote, seashell and fish motifs will feature on ‘Claudie’ cross-body bags, while crystal coral reef embellishment will adorn clutches.

"I wanted to launch bags in the same way I launched shoes. The first collection was all about making a statement with prints and color in order to produce something really special,” said Webster speaking to WWD.

The collection will be priced between £300 - £700 and is available now from sophiawebster.com
