Aspinal of London officially launched the ‘Giles X Aspinal’ exclusive collaboration in Dubai.
The brand invited the renowned designer to “dress” his favourite Aspinal products by bringing couture design elements to a playful and inspired collection.
The result is a fresh, colourful and embellished capsule based on Giles’s hand-drawn illustration of the “Aspinal Girls”, which appears on an all-over print on leather in various scales and colourways, as well as individual characters with a simple and elegant embossing of a single girl that represents the inclusivity of the collection.
“The design process for me always begins with the character – it’s who’s going to be wearing the piece and where she’s going. These are quintessential English girls, zooming around and having a good time in their frocks. They love the town and the countryside, they love fashion, quality and a bit of quintessentially English playfulness,” said the British designer.
Giles’s intricately detailed designs embellish a selection of Aspinal of London’s most iconic and timeless pieces including the Hat Box, Regent Tote, Micro Lottie, Soho Clutch and Hepburn Bag. The illustrations further continue across a range of purses, chic silk scarves, and travel accessories, with refreshing small leathers with new materials and finishes.
With the approaching holiday season in mind, the collaboration includes the ultimate luxury cracker set, containing embossed leather luggage tags, and a range of printed ribbons.
