Last year I fell in love with a little furry man wearing oversized spectacles. No, I’m not hinting at the physical appearance of the mysterious FFG. This little furry creature I’m referencing was the brainchild of Sophie Hulme. He was bite sized bag pet and he hung from my tote for a whole season, swinging back and forth and making people smile from Notting Hill to London Fields.
This season, Sophie Hulme is bringing us a new little bag pet in the form of an oversized pom pom made of shearling. At £150, it isn’t the cheapest accessory to add to your bags, but it is one that will bring miles of smiles. I’m instantly in love and can’t imagining leaving home without Austin. Yes, I have named him and he takes his name from another starry eyed legend – Mr. Austin Powers.
