#BringTheColour: Paul’s Boutique

Influenced by the fast-paced, diverse styles, cultural influences and attitudes of the capital, Paul’s Boutique handbags and accessories are bold, bright and beautiful!

From his humble beginnings, Paul started making printed tees for his friends and family, quickly progressing to a stall in Portobello Road…not too far off my fave place to go in London – Camden Market.

He was soon recognised for his talents and was offered his own concession in Topshop’s famous Oxford Circus store. And the rest, as they say, is history…

So what makes Paul’s Boutique so eye-poppingly fun?

Here’s a few of my must have pieces from their latest collection…and they certainly bring the colour!

I love, love, LOVE their gorgeous, structured shapes mixed with eclectic colour palettes and patterns. You know when a girl has a Paul’s Boutique handbag draped over her arm!

Whether it’s for the office, off-duty or for a chic lunch date with the girls, a Paul’s Boutique bag keeps your essentials secure and, most importantly, separate – so no more missing those important calls or losing your fave lipstick!

Paul keeps his purse profiles sleek, sophisticated and mature and, like all of his collections, they come in a range of safe hues including classic black and fresh nude.

However, these two PU purses certainly introduce a colour pop into your everyday wardrobe with their vivid colour palettes and clashes. I’m always a fan of PU when you can’t get (or afford) the real thing! These purses have a look of leather about them, but are SO easy to care for – just wipe them clean for a statement investment this season.

I can’t resist colour – and now I have the perfect excuse to shop it!
