The Case

I couldn’t be more excited to share this collaboration with you. I’m incredibly proud of the final results. I love using mine and I really hope you will think it’s special too. It really mattered to me to create something new and unique that wouldn’t be available anywhere else. An exclusive case that represented me and my travel life.  I love to look chic travelling, partly I guess because I do it so much. I hate the idea of looking a mess at the airport. So I like my outfits and luggage to have a clear aesthetic, a clean and grown up look. Some of my luggage is brown and tan, and some is black. I just find neutrals work best with most outfits and handbags. So I knew I wanted to keep the outside of the case all black, so it would be timeless and clean, and wouldn’t look dirty or damaged after being in the hold. That said, on the inside I wanted it to have the feeling of opening a jewel box. The lining is a pattern I created with paintings I made specially for the case. I used layers of white on beige to make a soft but detailed pattern inspired by my mixed race heritage – influenced by chinese wallpaper and painting. The print features lovebirds, butterflies and most importantly lots and lots of peonies. The paintings alone took three days to create. All the straps and hardware are based around the black and neutral palette. I subtly combined gold and silver hardware to make the case pair equally well with other accessories of either colour. The final cases have a beautiful label made specifically for this collaboration.

They will be available exclusively at Harrods, in-store and online for a limited time.
