So Fluffy! Charlotte Simone's New Handbags Are Fur-tastic
Charlotte Simone's popular popsicle fur stoles (both real and faux) have been the object of desire since their inception in 2011. And rightly so. Their playful bold stripes or dip-dyed ends make them one of the most coveted statement-makers around (Olivia Palermo counts herself as a fan).
Now, Charlotte Beecham, the mastermind behind Charlotte Simone, has broadened her world of fur to include her first-ever handbag collection. Adorably dubbed "Bon-Bons," the bags could easily be mistaken for pastel clouds of fluff. "Charlotte Simone is all about fun and fluffy accessories—I wanted to venture into other fluffy accessories and by collaborating with (Rita Ora's stylist) Kyle De'volle once again I was encouraged to go for it!" the design tells InStyle. "The name reflects the edible nature of the bag. Fluffy and round in yummy pastel shades, we wanted the Bon-Bon to look as scrumptious as it sounds."
Made of shearling (aka this season's hottest trend), the Bon-Bons come in four delicious shades: pink, blue, lilac, and gray ($245; net-a-porter.com). And believe it or not, they're highly wearable. Take English model Daisy Lowe for instance (above, left) who gave her smart separates a playful touch with a gray Bon-Bon. Or, style it with a cool graphic tee and leather skinnies, a la Rita Ora (above, right).
"The Bon-Bon has really pushed me out of my comfort zone," Beecham says of the process. "And although Charlotte Simone is all about the scarf, creating this bag has opened a door to the possibilities that lie ahead in the way of fluffy accessories!" More fluffiness in the future? We can't wait!
