I had the pleasure of meeting my favourite bag designer- Pauric Sweeney. Being such a dork, I carried my bag there to show him how much I loved his design and patent leather. Here I am standing outside his show room in Paris, my stomach is full of butterflies.
A most gorgeous pug called ‘Shakra’ with a diamante collar and larger-than-life personality greeted me. He made me miss my boys at home so much. We spent the next 10 minutes talking about our dogs and pulling out photos from our phones.
I wore my vintage gold ring everyday in Paris. I always pack a small satchel of jewelry and only end up wearing a few pieces. Wearing my Callia cream coat and dotted stockings from Alannah Hill. The buckled shoes are a copy of Opening Ceremony ones from Nine West. They’re tall but very comfortable.
Out of a living room full of bags, this grey leather bag was my favourite. It is actually a back pack as well. And yes I have ordered it for my boutique for next season. Cannot wait for its arrival!
Pauric Sweeney used to be a fashion designer. One day, a famous journalist told him at the end of one of his fashion shows that he should concentrate on his bags. He took her advice and the rest is history. Pauric used to be the accessories designer for Jil Sander. I love his bags. He’s pretty cool too. In Chloe dress and vintage nude scarf.
