This Irish accessories designer is on everyone's wish-list right now
If you are an avid Instagram user (like us), or just like to keep an eye on trends in general, chances are you have come across the gorgeous monogrammed bags from Rae Feather.
In fact; this last summer gone by, there was pretty much not an influencer or Instagram star that didn't share an image of themselves carting one of Rae's by now pretty iconic woven basket bags or clutches.
The designer herself, who hails from Co. Tyrone in Northern Ireland, has spent over 30 years living in London, and now runs her accessories empire from Northamptonshire, in the heart of the English countryside.
And when you see her collection, you will no doubt love every piece as much as we do:
Having started her business in late 2013, fueled by a desire to create a brand that was both sophisticated and considered, Feather's bags are now everywhere – and with her recent pop-up shop opening on Elizabeth Street in London's Belgravia, it is fair to say things are going great for the creative designer.
And now, having moved from just bags and clutches into also creating homewares, such as throws, candles and notebooks, as well as other lifestyle products such as towels, hats, beachwear, slippers (seriously, those slippers!) and jewellery, we pretty much have our eyes on everything in store.
Monogrammed slippers? Count us in.
And who said woven clutches are just for summer? We want to rock this one to every Christmas party this year:
And as for doing our Christmas shopping? We need this bag to haul our finds around:
Also on our Christmas wish-list? This monogrammed denim tote – perfect for carting around all those everyday essentials we all cannot leave the house without:
