What are the rules for Tonal Dressing? #fashion #handbags

Wearing one colour head-to-toe can look really stylish and extremely sophisticated. All you need to do is pick different textures, tones and shades in the same colour range to create the tonal look. It’s the height of chic!

Avoid prints as this will introduce too many colours which will ruin the effect. Also, you’re not looking to match the colours perfectly as this will appear too dated.

Light and dark shades of the same colour spectrum put together will look stunning. Zips and jewellery, along with studs and fittings on handbags will provide just enough relief to keep the outfit interesting. Gold, silver and brassy colours work best. Choose accessories well and they can really make your tonal outfit sing.  


Neutral colours are the easiest to put together; greys and creams blend nicely and look effortlessly expensive. For the more adventurous, reds can look stunning and make you stand out in a crowd. 

If Tonal Dressing is too boring for you, use shoes or handbags for a contrasting pop of colour. Don’t match shoes and handbag as this will spoil the over-all effect; choose just one accessory. For example, pick red shoes to go with a blue tonal outfit. Not only do the shoes subtly break up the look, but they somehow make the vibrant red pop even more.
Similarly, a bright orange knit jumper with a darker shade of orange trousers can be lifted with a splash of red scarf or a leather handbag. 

Pick different textures and fabrics to give your outfit and you shape. Now that’s tonal perfection.

Grey Leather Handbags for Travel, Work & Everyday FREE DELIVERY UK

If you’re a busy lady juggling work with kids and holidays, the concept of an organiser bag might be a pleasing notion indeed. Catwalk Collection Handbags have taken their organiser bags to the next level with their range of purpose made cross-body bags. Just the look of them and the feel of the leather make them very exciting. The English company wanted to create something that you can show off with pride, one where you can be organised and look chic at the same time.

The first organiser is the smallest in the range; Teagan. A neatly designed cross-body bag for everyday use with umpteen pockets and compartments to store everything and anything handbag related. This proved so popular that people wanted them made bigger for taking to work. The manufacturers then designed a large version and City came into existence, almost a mini office for transporting notepads and files, pens and paper, calculator and iPad plus myriad other office type contents.

This is when the Goldilocks effect occurred. For people who wanted to take the bag travelling, the Teagan was slightly too small and the City was simply too big. The manufacturing team got their heads together and designed a medium sized bag which was just perfect for the task.
These ultimate organiser bags are now available in a whole range of leathers and colours with more under development. City comes in hard-wearing Buffalo leather which has a fine grain and a soft shine to the finish. It looks smart and it means business. Teagan and Metro come in relaxed Washed leather that’s soft and sensual to the touch for everyday use.

The latest leather is their recipe for Grey. It’s slightly darker for the City bag which gives it a refined elegance and a more serious mood. The grey is a touch lighter for the leisurely Teagan and Metro designs and being a neutral colour it goes well with most clothes.

What sets Catwalk Collection Handbags apart from other handbag companies is their instinctive desire to provide products that work for the modern woman. They seem to understand the pressures of life for women and they like to come up with useful solutions that are not just practical but fit in perfectly with the fashions of today, enabling women to be fabulous and chic simultaneously.
It is every designer’s dream to create a classic handbag, a design that will never go out of fashion and perhaps they have found it with these ultimate organiser bags in fashionable leathers. This current design maintains a classic identity whilst the introduction of new leathers and colourways follows the trends of fashion houses.

City, Metro and Teagan organiser cross-body bags are currently one of Catwalk Collection Handbags best-sellers in the UK and across Europe. Now available on &

Presenting The New Distressed Leather Ashwood Bags from the Camden Collection

We love bringing you guys new bag styles to fit in with modern life and updated to fit new techology, so let me introduce you to 'Harris' from the Camden Range, made in your favourite distressed leather. 
As handsome inside as it is outside!

Style: 8354-Harris. 
Collection: Camden. 
Leather: Distressed Split Toscana. 

Been in a fight? This bag almost certainly has; textured, distressed leather with rough cut edges gives this messenger bag it's tough, rugged appearance when all the time it is really a soft, slouchy, comfortable bag at heart. Leather items may have blemishes, scars or wrinkles that are inherent characteristics and natural markings of the hide. This leather is designed to scratch easily and has that familiar, worn-in look much like a beloved favourite pair of jeans; the more scratches and knocks, the better the leather becomes. The bag has a long adjustable strap which is made from hardwearing, leather topped polyester. There are plenty of pockets for the storage of contents and the bag has good capacity for note pads, files and folders up to A4 size. Can hold up to one large lever arch file. Interior: 32.5x28.5x8.5cm. Pocket tops are finished with leather for extra durability. The base of the bag is flat.

How to Distinguish Genuine Leather from Fake

The Fire Test
The grains of fake leather would normally melt when burned. However, be aware that lots of faux and plastic leathers are now finished with a fire-resistant coating.

The Water Test 
Genuine leather will absorb water whereas synthetic leather doesn't. 

The Skin Grains
The grains in fake leather are glued whereas with genuine leather, they are part of the skin. You should be able to see that the grains of genuine skin are tidily arranged, close together and naturally bonded with no gaps.
