British beauty Alexa Chung was spied out in London wearing our favourite bag for Spring/Summer 2013, the Bathurst. Alexa wore the Bathurst Eye in black box calf leather with an enamel cameo style eye clasp to the British Fashion Awards in London last week and was spotted the very next night at another party wearing her favourite Bathurst Eye set off against an amazing apple green skirt.
With a nod to the 18th Century, the Bathurst is a new style for Spring that could have been inherited from your grandmother. For a modern twist, wear it cross body with its contrast coloured strap. Emboss your initials or a drawing on the strap, have your name embossed on the front and hide a handwritten note beneath the cover to make your Bathurst truly unique.
The Bathurst Soft Satchel, the larger style in this family featuring an enamel bow clasp, was worn by Olivia Palermo to the Anya Hindmarch Spring/Summer ’13 ‘Pomp & Pleasure’ London Fashion Week show.
