I recently covered the Capitalize Press Day for The Upcoming and saw many pretty and wonderful things, but the bags and accessories by Helen Rochfort really stood out.
Helen Rochfort started out in 2007 and her quirky and unusual designs are still going. There’s an element of childlike cuteness about her products but they aren’t tacky, so you won’t be looking like you’ve just robbed a four year old. Never a good look.
May sees the launch of the new Sindy products as it’s the doll’s 50th birthday. There will be a range of frame handbags and clutches available in this exclusive collaboration project.
“I was a Sindy girl in the 80s and look back nostalgically. Creating a Sindy 50th design and our ‘Postcard from Sindy’ range fits perfectly with the ethos of out brand.” Helen Rochfort
My favourite items by far though were the fairy tale bags, especially the Alice in Wonderland one, of course! I’ve seen many products that use fairy tales and childhood as their inspiration, but so few are actually practical. These products aren’t coated in saccharine and glitter, I want them aaaaaaaaall! 😀
The website is really worth checking out especially if you are on the hunt for a present for someone….or yourself!
