Isn’t it heart warming when your ‘significant other’ actually picks up on your hints for gifts you’d really love. I love a surprise, but on the other hand it’s also lovely to receive that luxury desired item that you maybe would not buy for yourself.
I was so lucky to receive a truly gorgeous palm sized leather zip coin purse, in black from the Grace Han collection for Christmas this year. I did send a cheeky little link from the website for this gorgeous piece and it really is the most perfect gift for those that appreciate the art of intricate design. The craftsmanship and quality of the leather is first-class, it features delicate and stylish ‘Ballet Pleats’ that are handmade mirroring the design on some of the larger handbags, as in the photo above. This purse may be small, but it’s beautifully designed to take credit cards, notes and coins, it fits seamlessly into a pocket, doesn’t take up too much room in your handbag, but is also comfortable just to take out on it’s own, fitting comfortably in your palm.
As a designer Grace, a British Taiwanese, was inspired by her parents, her father was an accomplished businessman and her mother equally as accomplished as an artist. The style of her works emphasises details and lines, while being soft, chic and luxurious. It took seven years to create Grace Han’s iconic multiple folding leather to be a major part of her ‘Ballet lesson’ collection.
The purse comes in a bold red, classic black and a pretty smoke rose, and is £390.
Grace Han has a fabulous selection of leather goods, all shapes and sizes of bags, wallets and purses, delivery is speedy and the packaging as you would expect from a luxury brand is of course stylish and luxurious.
One of the newest additions to the Grace Han range is the Small Black Backpack, part of The Love Letter collection and priced £1,695. It is crafted in 100% calfskin, with the same love, care and attention as the entire Grace Han collection, it is a globe trotters dream accessory. The Love Letter Backpack, named because of the envelope style opening, it is a new sought after addition to this particular range. It is just big enough to hold all of the essentials, it has one inner pocket, is not bulky, is comfortable on the shoulders and supremely stylish, particularly with the gold-tone hardware. The envelope style opening with a magnetic fastener ensures complete security when using it on your back. It is also available in a sexy shade of red!
