Hailes Hearts Henry Holland.

As I was walking through Debenhams (high-street department store) I stumbled across a new range of clothes. I saw the name Henry Holland and immediately thought I must be mistaken. But sure enough it was him and practically everything I saw, I fell in love with instantly. I came across this green satchel with a bright orange lining and reluctantly looked for the label. It was £35 but is now down to £26.25!! Both pretty reasonable prices. (Sadly) I put it on my birthday list so I can't really justify buying it in case someone else has had the same idea.

I really like this bag because I could mix it in with so many different styles. Versatility is a key when picking a day bag. It could be thrown on with a tea dress and pumps or jeans, a baggy top and fitted blazer. The satchel never fails to let me down and the fact that this one is such an unusual colour (similar to the Mulberry Satchels) makes it even more exciting and eye catching.

The collection this bag is from is called H! by Henry Holland and is is full of tea dresses and blouses mixed with a sporty edge of accessories. The Sport Luxe trend is so big here in England. I am putting it down to the Olympics being held in London this Summer. Everywhere I look, somebody is talking about it! I haven't been too thrilled by the examples I have seen of this trend on TV, neon clothes and random zips aren't really my style. Although I do like to occasionally throw in a 'current look' - this collection has the right mix of vintage, sport and androgyny with all the peter pan collars! This collection is perfect for me.

Make sure you check out his collection at your nearest Debenhams or online (click here).

Such an awesome color. Wow, it would be great to go with so many things.

Olympics is the reason why I and my boyfriend decided to skip visiting London this year and chose Prague instead :P
anyway, the green bag you've chosen looks really classy! I like the colour very much and hope you'll get the bag :)

It's very versatile indeed but I would have prefer another color, I'm not a great fan of this green anyway I love the shape.
Have a nice weekend :)

Well, that's pretty cool. I'm more giddy about the color than the design: you're right, it IS totally versatile. And I love treating green like a neutral. So many fun looks to create! I hope you get it for your bday!

P.S. Thanks so much for your comment and adding me to your blog roll! Means so much! <3

Gorgeous bag, the colour is awsome & it's so much cheaper than a Cambridge Satchel yet still gives the same effect.

I really love the H! collection. I don't often go into Debenham's, but I always check this out when I do. This is the perfect bag, and green is my second favourite colour (after red), so I'm not surprised you put it on your list - happy early birthday! xxx
