Luxury womenswear brand, Mother of Pearl, 2017 winner of the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund, has been commissioned to design this season’s London Fashion Week Festival limited edition tote bag.
The bag’s design draws inspiration from Dutch florals and the use of darkness and light in the paintings of artists such as Caravaggio and Jan Van Huysum. Mother of Pearl’s brand mantra is ‘Serious fashion, not to be worn too seriously’, so the striped sporty handles are the perfect partnership to the beautiful botanical print.
Mother of Pearl is a womenswear luxury brand based in East London. Each collection is a fusion between quality and design, with a focus on print, sportswear inspired detailing and luxe fabrications. Mother of Pearl takes an innovative, and often humorous approach to print and embellishment to strike a balance between easy daywear that can be dressed up for any occasion.
Caroline Rush CBE, Chief Executive of the British Fashion Council said: “Mother of Pearl’s beautiful designs perfectly capture British creativity and the energy of London Fashion Week Festival. It has been great to work with Amy on the tote bags for this season and I look forward to seeing them being used all over London and further afield.”
