When you talk to Clare Slater about her eponymous handbag and small leather accessories collection, it’s not a sales pitch. It’s pure passion. And boy, does she have a lot to be passionate about. Whether it’s the softest leather she has painstakingly chosen, the thoughtful design or the beautiful colours she has had dyed to her exact specification, every piece oozes quality without the designer price tag. And what’s more, I love that each piece is made with versatility in mind. From the bestselling Everyday bag that is big enough to hold all those essentials (let’s face it, whether you’re a mother or not, we all have a lot) and can easily be worn on weekends and weekdays alike. To the pouches that can be used to organise belongings in bigger bags (Amen!) or as a clutch bag – oh and they flat pack too which makes them perfect for travelling. There’s really nothing Clare hasn’t thought of. I’m rounding up my favourites from the collection below – and lucky ladies, GET 15% OFF BY USING CODE “HARRI” at checkout.
