Angelo over at Polkadot turned me on to Natalie Thakur, an emerging new London based leather bag designer. At the beginning of the month, Thakur made an exclusive version of the grocery bags as the give aways for the On/Off show at London Fashion Week at The Royal Academy. All work is handcrafted and made in limited quantities and from the finest leathers.
Thakur's signature collection, ‘The Reusable Range’ is based on the notion of disposability. The range is now stocked in the UK and internationally in Japan, Paris, San Francisco and most recently an exclusive collection for the large department store Takishimaya in New York, Fifth Avenue.
