About Time You Met: Olive CooperBy Claudine Levy
London Fashion Week is all about profiling up and coming designers, and we think we’ve found a great one for you.
Olive Cooper, the new kids on the block, are set to be big this Autumn. The new fashion label has designed innovative, elegant leather satchel bags which we’ve been lusting after since we first lay eyes on them. Get there while you still have the chance, because these babies are being snapped up.
Olive Cooper: The Story
Olivia Martyn (aka Olive) co-founded Olive Cooper whilst working in the city, finding it a drag lugging her heavy bag around with her when she wanted to meet friends for drinks after work. Olive left the city inspired to help lift the weight off the shoulders of other women like her, and thus – Olive Cooper was born. She created a range of handbags that can be subtly detached to become two separate bags, to suit the needs of working women who like to play hard as well as work hard.
Olive Cooper: The Collection
This Autumn/Winter will mark their first collection. Keen to support British manufacturing, each piece is handmade by craftsman right here in the UK. Key pieces come in Nubuck Leather, Suede and Wool.
