Handbag heaven at Aspinal of London AW16 presentation

The day of the Aspinal of London AW16 collection presentation was the day I died and the angels took me to handbag heaven. This was my first ever experience of LFW and I’ve loved Aspinal of London for a while so I was super excited to be on the invite list.

The presentation was in the Claridge’s ballroom (naturally) and I knew it would start well when we were greeted with bubbling champagne and delicious white chocolate cake pops. We went into the ballroom, which was beautifully decorated with a 1940’s edge, complete with the prettiest pearl details you’ll ever see.

Creative Director, Mariya Dykalo, was looking absolutely stunning and quite rightly showing off the collection.

Then the lovely ladies from Aspinal showed us around. Insert dreamy arm-candy pics here.

    Looks great. Love Aspinal – I just got a wallet from them and I think it’s going to be my first purchase of many. Very happy with the quality- I think there are more expensive brands without better quality! Have been raving about it to all my friends!

      I totally agree on quality. Plus they’re a British brand so that’s a plus 🙂

      Too many! I’m just glad there wasn’t an opportunity to buy otherwise my purse would have been in trouble 🙂

    Looks like a fabulous event! I love how they presented the new collection scattered around the ballroom. And it was in Claridges – so that’s a great treat 🙂
