The Lulu Guinness brand was established in 1989 with the concept of a briefcase for women. Guiness’ idea eventually morphed into vintage style rose basket bags which prompted the start of her fashion career as one of London’s leading bag and accessory designers. The Lulu Guinness brand is now multinational and buyers are invited into Lulu’s “weird and wonderful” lifestyle.
Inspired by the Surrealist artisan and fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli, Guiness “dares to be different.” Her designs have been seen on the arms of many trailblazing women including Helena Bonham Carter, Florence Welch, Katy Perry, Dita von Teese, Alexa Chung and Christina Aguilera – women who dare to be different and embrace their own femininity. Her famous kiss clutch was featured in The Untitled Magazine Music Issue 6 on musician Kate Nash (photo above).
Inspired by her recent trip to Miami, Lulu Guinness has released her latest bag collection.
