September can mean a lot of things, to a lot of people…returning to school, going back to work, the end of Summer and the beginning of Autumn. When investing in accessories, it is essential to have clean pieces that can effortlessly elevate your everyday look.
Signature Manière De Voir accessories combine neutral colourways and premium finishes, from laptop cases and backpacks to crossbody and travel bags, there is an accessory that will transport you from casual locations to formal occasions.
The silhouette of bags is particularly key when collating your everyday looks, the women’s Multiple Pouch Belt pairs perfectly with structured denim or a relaxed t-shirt dress. The Vegan Leather Backpack with Suede Panel can be worn with one of our Sports Luxe tracksuits, Cannes Runner Trainers for comfortable office attire, or take the formal route for your next big boardroom meeting, by styling up a crisp shirt and tailored trousers with the Check Laptop Clutch.
As well as looking good, your capsule of accessories needs to also embody both practicality and functionality. Enough capacity to comfortably hold your everyday essentials but still compact enough so that they easily move around with you on a daily basis.
To ensure extra longevity, here are some simple tricks you can use to keep your handbags and backpacks in perfect condition:
- Lubricate your zips: to prevent jammed zips, use softened paraffin or beeswax to lubricate the zips on your bags.
- Hand brushing: to keep the outer of your bags looking as good as new or to sort out any stains/marks, use a soft, mildly damp cloth dipped in baking soda, wiping the bag with gentle circular movements.
- Smelling fresh: to maintain that fresh ‘out of the box’ scent, once emptied leave a dryer sheet inside your handbag/backpack overnight and remove the following day.
