DESIGN THERAPY: Wilbur and Gussie

Wilbur and Gussie handbags/clutches are like jewels. Their Story...

"It's not such an unusual story, but we met at school when we were 14 years old, and never lost touch. In the Spring of 2005, we decided we were ready to start new chapters in our professional lives. Brett had been working in film and designing jewellery in her spare time; Lucy was a fashion buyer. Both of us felt the need to do something adventurous and creative. We realised there was a gap in the market for elegant, affordable clutches and decided to try and fill it. Our goals were to produce high-quality, statement bags that wouldn't break the bank. Wilbur & Gussie was born.

Our defining features are eye-catching prints and vibrant colour, elegant jewelled brooch fastenings and bold hardware. We try to buy limited edition fabrics and one-off brooches, thus making the bags unique and collectable. Everything is made in Spain."-via Wilbur and Gussie

Their Brand name came from their childhood pets, Wilbur the Cat and Gussie the Dog. Each line of clutches is further named from more family pets. The Charlie range of clutches are made from vibrant coloured silks adorned with elaborate vintage brooches as clasps.

These beauties are all you need with a simple black dress, to give a splash of colour and detail to your outfit.

For more day to day wear, the Harriet Bag is larger (for all your "essentials") and comes in classic colours of mock-croc with a vintage inspired clasp. Try this candy pink, which I LOVE!

They have a huge sale on right now! Now, which one to choose?
