Origin, Ethos & Inspiration
British designer Loren Taylor grew up in Africa; however, with strong ties to England, she now calls London home. Still on a quest to see the world, Loren is skilled at packing light and travelling without comprimising on personal style.
Taking inspiration from places she has lived and explored the label- established in 2008- offers bags designed with the urban traveller in mind. From the traditional slouchy Immi Bag, to the curvaceous Alice & perfectly formed Bella clutch bag, the current best selling styles are versatile and durable.
Craftsmanship and quality are fundamental.
Loren is proud to work with traditionally trained, leather artisans, selecting only the best quality leathers and materials available. Her handbags and small leather accessories are hand made in limited numbers; a quiet revolt against large scale production.
The final result… gorgeous luxury quality products that will effortlessly accompany you on your travels whether you are at home or exploring exotic far flung ‘corners’ of the globe.
INSPIRATION FOR AW12 SMALL ACCESSORIES
For AW12 Loren decided to focus on introducing the first small leather accessories into the Loren Taylor leather family. These small accessories have been designed to sit alongside the current collection and to offer a gorgeous selection of items ideal for gifting. Drawing inspiration from the SS12 colour palette Loren has kept one of her favourite colour combinations of fuschia & lime inspired by the native Sally – my – handsome flowers, which are found growing close to the shoreline in South Africa .
