Julien Macdonald Limited LFW handbag collection

Okay, it’s only available online, and in the London flagship Debenhams store for now, but we had to share Julien Macdonad’s Limited Edition handbag collection for London Fashion Week.

To coincide with the big week in fashion, the Debenhams designer has launched a range of four floral-packed handbags and accessories in his Star accessories line.

Bold florals are big news this spring/summer – more on them later on this blog. This collection fits in perfectly with that trend. There are four items in the collection, three bags and a card holder.

There’s a classic cross-body handbag (£39), perfect for when you need hands-free.

Everyone loves a clutch bag (£29), and so does Julien, as there is one in this collection too.

If you want something a bit more substantial, need to carry a bit more around, then go for the Tote bag (£59)

These items are available for a limited time, so be quick!
