When and how did you meet Bec and Adam? What was your first impression?
I knew a bag was being made, but I had no idea that it was going to be named after me! Being a friend of Bec and Adam I am privileged to hear about business ideas over brunch dates. I knew a bag was being designed and I loved it way back in its prototype stage. I guess my reaction to how cool the bag was back then may have led to the bag being named after me.
What do you put in your bag?
The essentials, my wallet (which is more like small card holder), my iphone, sunscreen (because I burn way too quickly for a brunette), Bal D’Afrique by Byredo parfum, bright red lipstick, hairpins and my earrings.
You had the unique opportunity of testing the design before it was released, can you remember your first impression? How has it gone over time? What features do you love?
My favourite feature on the bag is the wooden panel on the front. It’s a beautiful accent and brings a sophisticated earthy-ness to the bag. I love that the wood is bendy, it’s a little confusing at first to work out how the wood is bendy (it’s a bit magical), which I think what makes it so unique.
