Leather: How Influencers Styled It

Have you heard? We’re celebrating a very special birthday, as 2018 sees Cath Kidston turn 25. That’s right – we’ve been brightening up your day for a quarter century! As part of our calendar of celebrations, we’ve launched a brand new leather bag collection that features an array of 11 vibrant colours across seven classic bag shapes and accessories.

Our in-house designers are constantly on the lookout for inspiration, and have carefully crafted our latest luxury range. The concept was inspired by the colour and design experimentation that takes place in the Cath Kidston studio, and you’ll find eye-catching shapes that work in both alone and in tandem with the brand’s heritage prints – perfect for creating modern and wearable combinations with chic dose of style.

Whichever colour you choose, these multifunctional leather pieces will fit seamlessly into your everyday life, no matter whether you’re at the office or out for drinks. Keep reading to see how influencers are styling their beautiful bags.

“I believe in personal style over trends and quality over quantity.” – Samio

Samio (@samiorenelda) has paired her white Henshall handbag with monochrome shades to create a smart work to evening look, and her textured blazer is the perfect contrast to the smooth, luxurious leather of the bag. The compact yet generous Henshall shape is ideal for your everyday essentials, but is sleek and chic enough to carry well into the evening, too. Samio creates timeless outfit combinations and has a more minimal approach to her wardrobe curation – that’s why she loves our new leather range! The plain colour and tonal shades mean that there is something for everyone.

Jemma (@_jemmawade) is an artist and seeks out colour and design wherever she goes. She’s chosen the vibrant cherry red Lozenge bag from our leather collection, and it’s the perfect complement to her dreamy hair. Jemma wears a lot of black and neutral colours, and our leather bag adds an instant, effortless pop of warmth to her outfit builds. Harmonised with colour accent accessories, the Lozenge bag becomes the statement piece on this adventure – and, with two zipped compartments (each with an internal pocket) it’s sure to keep belongings safe and organised.

Jess, AKA the chic @coppergarden, is all about effortless style on her blog, pairing metal accents with monochrome to produce a flawless look. It was no surprise Jess chose our ice grey leather Cross Body bag – it fits in so naturally with her sleek sartorial style. With a simple textured rib jumper and a smart coat, the chic leather bag instantly takes Jess’s outfit to a new level. The cross body is one of our bestselling bags, and its two zipped compartments and adjustable strap means it’s ready to be taken anywhere.

Emily curates the @stylelobster, and has teamed her cherry red Lozenge bag with a seasonal trend favourite, the Baker Boy hat. She’s styled her luxury piece with cool denim and a comfy bomber jacket, but the outfit options don’t stop there – the sleek lines and classic colour of the bag means it’ll look just as good with a party dress!

Madina runs the beautiful blog, @thesematters, where she documents her family, travels and wardrobe. She has an eye for detail and adds warm, homely touches to her social feeds. Her latest love is our classic Saxham backpack in this rich plum colour. With its drawstring and magnetic closure, plus zipped side pocket, this leather bag is the perfect companion to venture out with. Styled with a kimono jacket in a similar hue and statement heels, the backpack is the perfect pretty yet practical finishing touch. The rich plum shade is ideal for teaming with other bright colours – or style with muted greys to add a pop of colour and ensure your luxury leather takes centre stage.
