Luxury leather goods brands?

(25 Posts)

I'm after a really nice leather purse in the sales and am prepared to spend quite a bit.

Which brands should I look at? I'm considering Mulberry but would like to shop around.

I have a lovely Aspinal of London purse in coral. It's beautiful. I stroke it - and I didn't pay the 'prestige brand' markup that Mulberry has whacked on since becoming more popular...

Dancergirl Wed 30-Dec-15 17:06:24

When did you buy it LB? Could you post a link?

AmberNectarine Wed 30-Dec-15 17:08:27

Agree Aspinal, my purse is also from there and they monogrammed it for free!

bluesky Wed 30-Dec-15 17:09:51

Smythson or look at Coach, they have lovely handbags so I presume wallets/purses too

Barbie1 Wed 30-Dec-15 17:13:46

I have three beautiful bags from here, the craftsmanship is excellent and five years on they still look like I have just purchased them

Can't see any purses on their site barbie

Think dh mentioned Smythson

Yes to Aspinal of London, fabulous place. I've had a phone cover, diaries and a bag from them and the quality is excellent

They have a website, and a couple of shops in London, Harrods also sell their goods. Sorry, I go into town to get mine, so I'm not sure about things further out.

They also have an eBay account and sell some of their seconds on there. If you wanted to expand a collection for not too much money ;)

Thanks, have checked out Aspinals and unfortunately they don't seem to do the size purse I am looking for. I want medium sized but with plenty of card pockets and a zipped coin section.

I love Mimi berry. All hand made in the UK. Beautiful leather.

How about jaeger? Not that expensive but rather nice and classic..

I was in the store yesterday and they had a good selection of purses in the sale in lots of colours.

I have a large everyday smythson purse and a smaller anya hindmarch one for going out.

Dancergirl Thu 31-Dec-15 10:02:28

I wonder if this might be worth a trip to Bicester....?

campbell which Smythson one do you have? I've been looking at the Continental.

greengreenten Thu 31-Dec-15 16:16:07

Smythson products are gorgeous.
They have a sale on too, online.

Dancergirl Wed 06-Jan-16 12:46:57

Reporting back, been looking at Smythson. They had a continental style in purple crocodile leather but it's sold out unfortunately. What do you think of this colour?

It's a gorgeous colour but too light for a purse? I wanted something different from black or brown.

Barbie1 Wed 06-Jan-16 15:21:37

I love it, I have the fashion note book and diary both in that colour and it wears well even though they are thrown in the bottom of my bag with stray raisins, cars and other such nasty things from the dc's

KateSpadeAddict Wed 06-Jan-16 15:45:45

What about Anya Hindmarch? Not enough card spaces in this?

And as usual I will promote my favourite brand, Kate Spade grin Not a great colour

Bodicea Wed 06-Jan-16 15:58:05

I have a Tory birch purse. Had it two years and still looks brand new.
The outnet is a good place to look for bargains.

buildingamystery Wed 06-Jan-16 15:59:41

Tanner Krolle and Loewe are my favourites. I have a couple that I have had for a while and they look fantastic.

Dancergirl Wed 06-Jan-16 16:41:19

Thanks, think the Smythson one is still my favourite, it's exactly the right size and I like the layout of compartments.

Just can't decide on colour though!

Boosiehs Wed 06-Jan-16 16:43:08

Furla are lovely. I ❤️ them.

Tate15 Wed 06-Jan-16 16:47:01

Osprey make some nice purses.

ivejusthadacake Wed 06-Jan-16 21:25:35
