Lulu Guinness is somewhat of an icon on the British fashion scene. Renowned for her playful approach to accessory design, Lulu Guinness pieces focus on glamorous retro influences which have been given a distinctly contemporary twist. With celebrity fans including Dita von Teese, Katy Perry and Alexa Chung, it goes without saying that the brand produces collections which are both luxurious and seriously covetable.
The Autumn/Winter 2012 collection, entitled ‘Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover!’, sees Lulu Guinness experimenting with a midnight blue and vivid red colour palette, as well as signature design elements such as the popular lips motif. Inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s character in the iconic film ‘Funny Face’, the Autumn/Winter collection explores the concepts of both beauty and brains through Lulu Guinness’ charming Lulu book shop, a vintage store façade which is present on the Emily and Jenny bags. This theme can also be seen running throughout other designs in the collection, including the Black Library Jenny and the Black Library Ethel Tote, both of which feature a colourful stack of books baring titles such as ‘Dare To Be Different’ and ‘Confessions of a Glamour Girl’. The Librarian Doll Face selection effectively showcases the brand’s amazing ability to bring a sense of humour to the luxury accessory market, featuring a bespectacled face in a bold red, black and white colour scheme. Key fabrics present in this incredible collection include calf hair, snakeskin and soft nappa leather, ensuring each design is a textural delight.
