Day 1: The ‘Luisa’ Bag (words by Monique Chambers)
Classic with a twist, enduring and reliable are all things that sum up Charles&Ron’s collections; and since the very beginning, the model they chose more often than not to carry their show-finale dress, would be Luisa.
Luisa started modelling in 1998 and her career spanned the births of her children.
So striking, Luisa was nicknamed ‘Mary Poppins’ by the design duo, as she always had whatever anyone needed, from tissues to homeopathic remedies, to pens to polish. And that was no accident; as a mother to four children and modelling all the way through, Luisa proves that being pretty and practical can go hand-in-hand.
This tote bag reflects elements of Luisa’s character and is surely what every busy woman needs. Stylish with the textures, so on trend for the A/W 2014 season, capacious enough to fit your iPad, phone, make-up bag, purse and all sorts of necessities, it, like the rest of the collections, is timeless and elegant enough to still make this ‘must-have’ part of your outfit.
