Bag Brands to Know for Autumn 2018

Here at The Vendeur HQ, we are obsessed with finding new brands you will love. Here are our favourite handbag brands to know for Autumn.

When it comes to updating your wardrobe for the new Autumn Winter season, it can be tempting to just go nuts in your local high street store buying up anything that looks remotely similar to something you saw in a catwalk report. Instead we recommend investing in a few pieces, nothing too trendy, just something in a new exciting style that you’ll still want to wear come next year. 

A perfect example of this is of course a fabulous bag. An object of functional, wearable art that will have people asking ‘OMG where did you get your bag?!’ It was hard to choose just five bag brands for Autumn but we promise they will all make your heart skip a tiny beat.

Inspired by the folk traditions of the Spanish Mediterranean, Hereu create modern handbags for ladies on the go. The brand works with skilled local Spanish artisans to deliver their clean but charming styles. They also make adorable leather espadrilles that are well worth checking out.

What do you get when you combine British style with artisan Indian craftsmanship? The answer, a bag that’s as beautiful as a piece of jewellery. Handmade in India, each piece is uniquely charming. Crafted from gold or silver plated metal and raw silks, the result is a sumptuous homage to 70’s Bollywood, with an achingly cool twist.


A clever play on words, Carcel’s name came via their production line, all of their silk products are produced by incarcerated women in Chiang Mai, Thailand.  Their first bag, the Buck It Bag (geddit?) is created from fine Thai silk, native to the country it is then produced in. With a design team based in Denmark, the mixture is a heady one of ‘oh so trendy’ and giving back.

Paradise Row

Named after a street in their beloved East London, the team behind Paradise Row are obsessed with all things ‘East’. So much so, all their leather bags are designed and produced right there, with many of their core styles named after aspects of East London. We love the Empathy collection, made from vegetable tanned leather, twelve carat gold plated fittings and a whole lot of positive intention.

Wicker Wings

Inspired by their Grandmother’s days of hand weaving baskets in China, the sister and brother duo behind Wicker Wings set out to create the ultimate modern basket bag. And we think they got it spot on. They are proud of their ‘Made in England’ mark, but even prouder that their bags are made from naturally grown ratan and vegetable tanned leather.
