Love quality handbags with a unique edge? Then check out the Willique Handbag range. Made of the finest quality leather and hardware, founder, Anya Willique, has an appreciation for functionality while giving a subtle nod to classic English design with her gorgeous designs.
London based designer, Anya, who established the brand in 2016, was born and raised in both the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos Islands. She often references her heritage through her designs. The Willique brand has already gained the attention and support of The Royal Prince’s and she has showcased her collections at various industry events, including February’s Fashion’s Finest London Fashion Week event.
Her Conscious Collection, first released in AW16 is a beautiful range of bespoke handbags crafted from a variety of sustainable materials. Recognising that it can be difficult to find luxury leather goods that are both bespoke and cruelty free, Willique has forged links with an innovative alternative leather company.
Reflecting on next steps, Anya states: “I am proud of what we have achieved in a relatively short space of time. I believe that I am part of a new wave of successful and young black female creatives who represent diversity within the London fashion industry. Willique is a wonderful marriage of design, my Bahamian heritage and love of British craftsmanship. I look forward to the rest of the year, forging ahead with producing more collections and developing my brand.”
