As we're all about full disclosure here, we have to tell you up front that the L.K. Bennett Rosamund Bag has been a favourite for 2013. I have carried my orange Rosamund to death and been met with compliments and enquires everywhere I go. At one point I considered giving up and just tattooing L.K. Bennett on the outside to keep the questions from rolling in. This is a bag that looks, feels and acts expensive. How does a bag act expensive? Well, it ticks all the boxes for carry needs while also maintaining its shape and colour - and drawing attention from every fashion forward thinker on every city sidewalk.
As it turns out, we weren't the only ones to fall in love with the Rosamund bag, which of course gets its name from the actress Rosamund Pike who designed the bag for the brand. We asked Sarah Barclay, Head of Press of L.K. Bennett, how the bag was received across the nation over the year and she shared the following-
‘Since we launched The Rosamund Collection this Summer, the design continues to be a consistent strong seller both UK and Internationally. It’s an ongoing collaboration, with Rosamund Pike being hands on with all forthcoming ideas and colours. She wanted to create a real modern classic, a here-to-stay, bag for life – using all the hallmarks of true luxury (specifically hardware & leather) with an accessible price-point’.
It's always good to hear you are in good company. Now onto the good news for the new season. The Rosamund is returning. Yes, it's done so well it's getting a repeat performance. For Spring Summer 2014 the bags are now in a range of vibrant colours ranging from vibrant coral to nautical navy/white. They continue their heritage of being made in Italy with soft calf skin and contrasting grained leather. Bliss in a bag!
Now you may have seen we mentioned a competition. Well, all I can say right now is that it's coming on Monday and it has to do with this fabulous new collection. So if you fancy getting intimate with a Rosamund bag, make sure and check back first thing Monday. Trust us, you won't regret it!
Let's just say you should pop over now and start checking out the colours of the Rosamund bag for SS14 in preparation...
