Time for a seriously awesome giveaway. (more…)
As much as I love the shape of the Notting Hill Westbourne, it is the rich saturation of colors that has me ga-ga for the brand. To be honest, it is both aspects. The structured shape of the Westbourne is typically not one I am drawn to, yet the feminine and streamlined design is perfectly put together. Why I really love this bag is that it is perfect for dressing up but can still be worn dressed down. And for me, having a more elegant bag in my wardrobe that I can still wear with jeans is a homerun.
For Spring 2010 I could not pass up sharing the colors that Notting Hill has available in the Westbourne. (more…)
One of our goals for 2010 is to bring you more news from designers you may not know much about. Recently we brought you information on Notting Hill Design, a brand whose bags have been spotted on Gossip Girl and whose designs exude an uptown sophistication.
Notting Hill Design is the latest brand we want to formally introduce you to. We already had Amanda gush about their Westbourne after she spotted it being carried by Leighton Meester on Gossip Girl. Then we were teased even more when Blake Lively stepped out with the same design in the most delicious shade of orange. Now it is time we introduce you all officially.
PurseBlog readers, meet Notting Hill Design. Notting Hill Design is a handbag brand that was created by husband wife duo Kimberly and Steven Yurisich. Kimberly is a former New Yorker with a background in architecture and luxury goods while Steven is an Australian entrepreneur who helped launch Marquis Jet in Europe. Their luxury background reflects in the designs of their bags. Not only are these handbags pleasing to look at, but are also nice to the touch. The skins are delicate yet sturdy, practical yet luxurious. The collection channels the 40’s and 50’s, showcasing clean, sculptural lines while keeping proportions and shapes in mind. (more…)
I just fell off my couch.
The Notting Hill Design Westbourne Tote is just that beautiful. Never heard of the designer? Me neither. Nor has basically anyone, but they somehow snuck the Westbourne Tote into an upcoming episode of Gossip Girl, on the arm of none other than Blair Waldorf herself, and that will set the fashion folks a-chatter more quickly than almost anything. As the name suggests, the brand is based in West London and has a small collection of several bags in a variety of exotics including python, crocodile, alligator and ostrich as well as calf, deer, goat, and buffalo leather. Their bags are simple but architectural in design, and the attention to detail paid when using the exotic skins is incredibly exact. (more…)
