Last year for our wedding anniversary, the Mr surprised me with a gorgeous monogrammed Aurora London Ziggy bag that I’d been hinting about for months. I wore it all through autumn, winter and beyond, with the beautiful Aurora London bag a firm wardrobe favourite still. The stunning quality of the designs and premium leather make this independent brand a lust-list accessories name to shop.
So I was thrilled when co-founders Sarah and Devina sent me their Willow bag to review. A chic and timeless cross body bag which doubles up as a clutch, you can pick from a stylish colour selection too. Mine is burgundy, but there’s also navy blue, black, ruby red, pewter and gold to choose between.
Plus, fast forward a few months and we now have a dog called Ziggy. My husband always wanted our first pup to be called this and I love that he matches my bag, with such special meaning too.
The Willow (£69) is a perfect size for your essentials on the go, and then you simply unclip the strap to convert it into a streamline clutch. Aurora London bags come complete with a dust bag, embodying their ethos of elegant and luxe items at affordable prices.
Launched in 2013, Aurora London focuses on both style and substance; boasting beautifully made bags aplenty which truly last the test of everyday use.
Continually introducing new colour palettes, the latest incarnation is their two tone take on the Gigi bag (£108). As mentioned, monogramming can be added for £22, with space for three initials.
Discovering an independent brand creating breathtaking creations means that as a fan of Aurora London, your collection will become something you want to continually add to. And as their affordable price tags are purse friendly, you can store up present ideas come birthdays, Christmas and just as a well deserved treat to yourself.
