Victoria & Hunt

Chevron prints accompanied by a hint of leather, make Victoria & Hunt bags wearable, yet stylish. Designed by Lauren Pennefather, in her beautiful Durban home, these bags are the newest addition to her popular range.  She debuted her collection with her bunny print nappy bags and recently introduced the new prints to add a slight fashion edge. Lauren’s understated personal taste is gracefully translated into her designs and creations. The totes are versatile, holdalls with convenient inside pockets for essentials.  The trims and hardware are sourced locally and the fabrics are laminated in a matte finish to allow for easy cleaning and lasting style.  The collection includes ice-cream parlour pastels, finished off with tan leather.  The bags retail for R520 and work wonderfully as a beach bag or for everyday wear. Other items on offer, include cooler bags, receiving blankets, cushions as well as fabric by the metre. For more details or stockists, contact Lauren via email – or visit the Victoria & Hunt Facebook page.
