Leather Handbags from British Companies
After the British Style Council unveiled the line-up for London Fashion Week, we took a peek at some British companies and their very latest in leather handbag designs.
Ri2k London leads the way with their showcase by creative talent Isla Simpson; new and innovative designs with flair and imagination. Who can resist Jerri; a fabulous large drawstring tote bag made from delicious purple cherry leather?

Smith & Canova have some new and beautiful leather handbag designs to tempt us with. Based in the north of England, Smith & Canova has long been recognised for its own brand of high quality leather handbags and accessories. Trends this season include soft nudes, creams and dusky pinks. Monaco, Ruby and Venice are not to be missed.

They say the only way is Essex and we have to agree! Gigi personifies the cool Britannia look with elegant designs which wouldn’t look out of place on the Duchess of Cambridge, or Kate Middleton as she’s probably better known. Perfect for town or country, check out the Othello Collection in Classic, Fashion or Stripe leather.
Gigi Shoulder Bag - Stripe £49.95 (RRP £65)
Catwalk Collection Handbags are creative, colourful and fun with cute cat logo bag charms and heaps of personality. The Catwalk design team works from Shropshire and the warehouse which stores the finished leather handbags is affectionately known as Catwalk Alley. The latest addition to the collection is a totally gorgeous leather handbag called Caz, which happens to be the nick-name of one of the employees.
Catwalk Collection Handbags - Caz Shoulder Tote Bag £89.95 (RRP £115)
