Many classically English traditions were taken into consideration when creating concepts for the bag, including equestrian and country styles as well as military trends playing key roles in formulating ideas for the structure, texture and colouring of the saddle bag. However these iconically male traditions were updated to create a ladylike twist on the classic cross body bag, using subtle additions.

Another important aspect behind the bag was its need to be super versatile and totally functional for everyday use. The structured shape ensures you remain organised for your hectic schedule, while the simple letterbox closure allows for easy navigation of the opening and closing of the bag.
