After announcing the opening of the very first Shelley & Harry store in Sea Point recently, we couldn’t resist showing you their brand new signature Houndstooth collection of bags. The adorable totes are of course inspired by Shelley’s four-legged business partner – Harry the daschund – who is also the brand’s ambassador on the Shelley & Harry logo. The houndstooth pattern is essentially an extension of their logo, which has also been used in the new store’s quirky houndstooth wallpaper. Shelley describes the houndstooth pattern as ‘fun and playful, but not too obvious’ – in fact, you have to look at the bags quite closely to see that it is little Harry in the patterned design. Embracing the unmissable Shelley & Harry vintage charm evident in their jewels, the bags are available with either brown or black detailing. You can also choose between a smaller clutch or bigger shopper handbag, depending on the needs of the client. When asked what inspired the look and feel, Shelley says, ‘We decided to keep the designs simple, stylish and practical with genuine leather trim’. The clutches are priced at R880 each, the medium bags at R1 350 each and the large bags at R1 950 each. Team them with a beautiful pendant or bangle from the jewellery range for a truly timeless look.
