Zandra Rhodes Handbag Collection

Zandra Rhodes

Fashion designer Zandra Rhodes has created a new range of handbags under a licensed agreement with Girari Design. The collection includes a variety of styles including totes, clutches, handbags, wallets and makeup bags. There are lots of prints and patterns in bold tones with rose-gold clasps, and of course lined in bright pink!

I had a chance to interview Zandra Rhodes about her collection:

What is the inspiration behind the collection?
ZR - My very special Rose printed evening jacket printed with giant deco Roses, which inspired the exquisite long narrow clutch with the rose pattern cut out and over-lyed on top of another leather. Also my signature lady’s head has been interpreted into gold embroidery onto a vibrant pink satin bag, which can be a very signature evening bag.

Where will the bags be sold?
ZR - Beales Group, Fenwicks, Independents

Was it the success of the M&S collaboration that inspired you to launch your handbag range?
ZR - A little but no outfit is complete without a handbag and a pair of shoes both of which Zandra Rhodes now does.

Can you tell us more about your teepee collection?

What’s next?
ZR - The sky’s the limit!! Always thinking up new projects. currently working on my new book about my work between 1961 and 1971 called Zandra Rhodes – Textile Revolution, Medals, Wiggles and Pop 1961-1971.
