Our new Aspinal launch at London Fashion Week

8th March 2017

The buzz of London Fashion Week was in full swing as we arrived at the Aspinal of London presentation in Claridge's Hotel. Following on from the success of our Pegasus collection of bags and scarves, launched last year, we were delighted to preview a brand new range of Pegasus bags as part of their Autumn/Winter 2017 collection. Our hand drawn designs star on a range of bags to be released by Aspinal later this year - read on to find out more...

The vintage Aspinal car was a delightful sight, parked outside Claridge's Hotel.

The theme for the presentation was "A Night at the Theatre"; the ballroom at Claridges Hotel was transformed into a theatre-esque room, filled with opulent and luxurious furnishings. Red velvet was a continuous theme, and the walls were adorned with designs that evoked a true sense of watching a show. For example, their upcoming large leather totes were featured prominently in a 'box' style display.

The opulent furnishings were in-keeping with the "Night at the Theatre" theme - a velvet delight!

"Hand-drawn pearly constellations, planets, galaxies and shooting stars surround the mythical Pegasus on these magical new rucksacks."

The new large Aspinal bags were displayed in the premier boxes, as if they were the VIPs of the presentation.

The real reason we attended the event was to take a peek at our new collection with Aspinal - and we couldn't be happier with the result. Aspinal have re-invented the original Pegasus design, and transferred it onto a new range of leather and canvas rucksacks! These bags will come in a cream or navy leather, and feature either the Pegasus design or the starry galaxy scene on its own. What's more, the collection will consist of a variety of sizes - oversized rucksacks and smaller, more compact backpacks.

Additionally, the original Pegasus Trunk and Clutch have been re-worked; hand-embellished with Swarovski jewelsgems and 23 carat gold dust, added entirely by hand by artist Annie Newman.

These new styles will be released later this year - if you're already planning to take home one of these new bags, sign up to our newsletter below to be the first to hear about their release...
