Friends like Hill & Friends

I’ve been looking for a leather tote since I ruined a beautiful leather bag (actually, to be honest it was my sister’s beautiful leather bag) – because I kept shoe-horning my laptop into it, toting it around over-stuffed and over-stretched. The spec was that it had to be soft and supple leather in uniform black and the right size for everyday; I browsed Cos (nothing in the right size) ASOS (not the right shape) and Zara came close but the quality wasn’t there.

Cue Hill & Friends inviting me to see their new autumn/ winter collection which features neon Happy chain bags, burgundy totes, grown-up camel colours, metallics and leopard print; there’s something for every leather-lover whether you are a minimalist or a more-is-more sort of person.

Did I find what I was looking for? YES! Introducing the newest addition to my every-expanding collection of black leather handbags, the Happy Slouchy Tote in Liquorice Black – a true Mary Poppins design that can fit everything for my everyday including my laptop – hoorah!
