Then the gorgeous and vivacious Brooke Fairgray took us through Saben's latest range - once known as Saben's sales and marketing manager, Brooke's now known as 'coffee drinking, secret sharing chaos maker'. Each bag has it's own name - Harper, Madison and Chloe (to name just a few), and Brooke talks about them as if they're her babies. "They all have their own personalities" she laughs. Dael's favourite was Charlie - Giraffe, and, although I could've happily walked out with half a dozen different styles, if I had to choose just one, it'd be the Caroline clutch. The perfect size, and sporting a classic purse clasp, it's reversible, making it super versatile. Use one side for day, and flip it over for a glamorous evening purse.
Giant black & white posters adorning the walls feature some of Saben's most stylish friends modelling their favourite Saben pieces. Brooke explained the Portraits of Style campaign, and I love the concept. Celebrating individual style, Saben asked their friends to show us how they wear their favourite piece and had photographer, Mike Rooke capture their personality. No professional models here, just super stylish people, including the lovely Nardine from Baz*ar. What's your favourite bag, and what would you prefer your title to be?
I think I'd be 'bubbly drinking, animal loving colour junkie'!
