We tell you about the accessory of choice for a bone fide princess

Designed by Robert Dumus, the Hermès Kelly bag has been around since the 1930s.

The bag’s aesthetic was very different to the decorative styles that were in fashion at the time.

It took its moniker from Grace Kelly after the Princess of Monaco reportedly ordered six of the bags in different colours in 1956.  Photographs of the Princess with her various bags and other celebrity fans soon made the design an icon.

F is for Falabella: Why has this British bag become so iconic?

Stella McCartney’s Falabella bag, instantly recognisable by its braided chain, has now reached icon status.  Introduced in the Winter 2010 collection and refreshed each season it has become one of the brand’s best-selling designs.

We have a couple of bags from the Falabella family available for rent on our site – the black faux-suede Falabella shoulder bag and the grey faux-suede Quilted Baby Bella.

Stella is a life-long vegetarian so the brand does not use any leather or fur in her designs so it’s faux-leather and faux-suede all the way.

Make a statement with Lulu Guinness

If you haven’t already met, we’d like to introduce you to Eloise.  She’s a canvas shoulder bag with an eyeshadow printed scarf by Lulu Guinness.

We love a shopper and the Eloise is perfect for work, shopping or a day out, if you’re anything like us and are a girl with lots of stuff!

We love detailing and Eloise isn’t short of that.  As well as the eyeshadow printed scarf the bag has patent leather handles and trim, a Lulu Guinness logo on the back and a number of internal pockets.

Unfortunately Lulu Guinness no longer makes the Eloise bag but we’ve got one on our site for rent so why don’t you have a look?

Why we love Louis Vuitton’s signature check canvas print

Louis Vuitton’s Damier print is universally recognisable whilst being subtler than its eponymous LV initials print.

Created in 1888, the Damier brown check canvas pattern, originally bore a logo that read “marque L. Vuitton déposée”, which translated as “L. Vuitton registered trademark”.

Just over a century later, in 1998, the pattern was reintroduced as the Damier Ebène, and it has proven to be a huge success.  A number of Damier canvases have been introduced since then: Damier Azur (beige and blue), Damier Graphite (black and grey for the 120th anniversary of the canvas in 2008) and the embossed leather of Damier Infini (soft calf leather textured in the style of Damier check).

We’re fortunate to have a classic Damier Ebène Neverfull tote bag for rent on our site.  Why not check it out?

Animal print that’s quirky and versatile

We love a bag that’s both quirky and versatile – that’s why we love Kate Spade’s Cobble Hill Krista.

Firstly, it’s made out of animal print material.  Animal print goes with everything and instantly perks up any outfit.  Secondly, the Cobble Hill Krista can be worn as a shoulder or cross-body bag.  Thirdly, it has secret pockets and gold-coloured hardware. It also has both zip and magnetic fastenings for ease of use.  What’s not to love about this bag?

What is the ultimate bag icon?

Many designer bag lovers consider the Hermès Birkin to be the ultimate bag icon.  We must confess that we’re huge fans and it tops our bag wish list.  Well we can all dream, can’t we?!

As the story goes, Jean-Louis Dumas, who’d been at the helm of Hermès for five years, happened to be seated next to Jane Birkin on an Air France flight in 1983.  Jane dropped her Hermès datebook, scattering its contents and stating that bags never have enough pockets!  Dumas offered his assistance and introduced himself.  He subsequently offered to make her dream bag for her.  The finished version, named the Birkin, has since become iconic due to its design and rarity.

Over 30 years later the Birkin has been made in a variety of leathers and colours and now comes in a wide range of models.  Bags have been known to change hands for tens of thousands of pounds.  A rare gold and diamond encrusted Birkin was sold at auction in Hong Kong for £146,000 in 2015.  The original Birkin was auctioned off at a fundraiser for earthquake victims in Taiwan.

Thierry Hermès set up his harness workshop in Paris in 1837.  Hermès is now a high fashion luxury label specialising in leather, lifestyle accessories, home furnishings, perfume, jewellery, watches and ready-to-wear clothing.
