Alfie Douglas shoulder bag that I've recently found and fell in love with.
First of all, it's British, which makes me feel rather proud. Secondly, I adore the name - the way "Alfie" glides off the tongue transforming into a sweet, coquettish sound makes me want to treat the bag as if it was a toy, a precious find, a piece of delicious toffee - one of my favourite traditional candies and, when it comes to fashion, hues...
What makes it even more special is all the care and hard work that goes into production, from the choice of the finest leather and dyeing techniques to the traditional saddle stitching and copper finishes, all done by hand making each piece unique and one-of-a-kind.
A sort of bag one would be happy to carry around and keep for years. And since it can be yours for on£100, Alfie makes a rather smart investment for those girls who appreciate finer things and timeless style that don't require a special loan in order to be acquired and maintained.
Available on-line, in the most perfect shade of tan or classic black.
