I would be lying if I said that a big reason for starting this site was to dwell on my favourite fetish. Handbags. I have included many stylish, desirable bags; recently I have been searching for more to potential ‘coveted bag’. Truthfully I feared that I had exhausted all suitably fine bags. Then, by chance I came across designer Amelia Powers. She began her career in fashion 10 years as a dealer specialising in vintage clothing. Over the years, Powers accrued an impressive list of both clients (including New Look and Gucci) and unique pieces. Not content with just being a dealer, Powers decided to create her own handbags; inspired by classic, timeless styles. Here is, in my opinion her dreamiest creation to date. The. Berkeley Bag.
Named after legendary Hollywood director, Busby Berkeley. Powers has created a bag that meets my need and desire. Handles that are large enough to go over one’s shoulder but not look cumbersome. A sleek finish, discreet clasp plus the depth is plentiful for everyday use. Even Burlesque dame Immodesty Blaize cannot resist the Berkeley spell (bottom picture). If you want a particular colour, You can personalise your bag. Making your bag a true one of a kind.
Here is the catch, at £2,995, Berkeley is a lavish splurge of a bag. As much as I covet this bag, the price tag is simply too much. Still the search for more desirable handbags continues.
