Newsflash: Mawi to Debut Bags in Spring/Summer 2013!

I don’t know if any of you are as excited about this as I am, because Mawi (no, not the Malaysian singer, but the British jewellery label), who is known for creating the epitome of statement accessories, is said to be launching a line of clutches! And if the image below is any clue to how the clutches are going to turn out, I’m beyond thrilled! 
I got to actually see Mawi’s designs up-close during the London Fashion Week exhibits when I was there last September when she had her collaboration with Disney Couture. Perhaps the sound of Disney would make you all iffy about the collection and her designs now, but trust me, because, I, too, am most definitely NOT a Disneyphile. But when I saw the collection at the LFW showrooms, I was smitten by the cuff. True story, and it’s not at all tacky. Apart from Disney, Mawi’s previous collaborations have been with ASOS, Topshop, Swarovski, Temperley London, and Hugo Boss. 

Mawi’s designs are bold (points to photo above) but somehow, she seems to make it all work. I mean, can you really think of anyone else who can manage silver and gold glitter along with bold oversized crystal embellishments? Her accessories are filled to the brim with personality and she is one of the few designers who have a knack for fusing all the elements so effortlessly without making it seem too OTT.
