JUST when you thought you didn't need another bag, a new collaboration comes along to tempt those purse strings: Sara Berman has teamed up with Isabella Oliver 365 - the ready-to-wear line from maternitywear label Isabella Oliver - to create a capsule collection of patent leather and silk satin handbags.
"Vanessa and I both love our Sara Berman bags so it felt right to do this collaboration with Sara and Aimee," says co-founder of Isabella Oliver 365, Baukjen de Swaan Arons. "From a commercial perspective, we wanted to add a few bags to our collection as our customers often ask for this."
The first time Isabella Oliver has branched out into bags, expect a series of practical tote, weekender and clutch styles streaming with ruffles.
"Obviously our bags reflect our clothing line and have a strong associated handwriting. The look is individual and feminine with a splash of rock 'n' roll. Strong, structural shapes and fabulous leathers are set off by the bold, feminine detailing. An unusual combination which works together to create a new, fresh aesthetic," explains designer Sara Berman, who runs her eponymous fashion label with business partner and sister, Aimee.
