Khaki is the shade of the moment and one of my personal favourites for its versatility when it comes to planning my outfits and for its warm earth tones that compliment my red hair beautifully.
This stunning Helena shoulder bag by ILEX LONDON is crafted from soft Nappa leather and makes for the ultimate sophisticated piece. This is now my go to work bag as it’s easy to carry around and comes with a gorgeous structured shape that makes it perfect for carrying my folders, magazines, notepad and other work essentials in. The functionality of this bag is brilliant and it also doubles up as a grab bag and a cross body if you want to switch your style up from day to day.
This bag truly does oozes sophistication and when I wear this it instantly smartens up my outfits with the exquisite miniature holly leaf emblem to the lower front of this bag. Just by holding and feeling this bag you can get a sense of the impeccable craftsmanship that went into designing this piece and the luxurious interior to the inside of the bag. The single compartment inside is perfect for holding your phone, lipstick and other bits and pieces you need. I really liked the idea of the black suede dust bag to place the bag in when not in use, thus protecting the delicate leather and keeping the bag pristine for longer.
ILEX creates lots of different bag styles and finishes with a wide range of shades to fit in this season! They pride themselves in bespoke luxury and have a passion for the leather craft. The impeccable design is definitely what you will receive with this brand and the natural leather finishes really do complete the finished product. This bag is the perfect classic piece to have in my wardrobe and I can see this working all year round and the minimal design works so well with everything.
