Rising star of the British fashion scene, luxury accessories and outerwear designer Sophie Hulme graduated from Kingston University in 2007 with student of the year and best collection awards. Launching her label just two months after graduating, Sophie has wasted no time becoming one of Britain’s most promising designers, exhibiting on schedule at London Fashion Week for the first time in February 2012 . But it is perhaps her bags, especially her square armoured Totes that Sophie is best well known. Designed to last and hold a lot of stuff, they are made from soft leather with polished brass plates, they certainly look like they could last a lifetime. Like Sophie herself, I think they will be around for quite some time to come.
