Making Waves and Making Friends
June has been another busy month at madebywave HQ as the brand journey continues in all its glory! In the past month, I've been spending time at A Luxe Story pop up and met some great new people – customers, buyers, designers and bloggers.
It was actually at a pop up a few months ago that I met the lovely Chrissabella for the first time. This German-born, London-based blogger has a 34,000-strong following on Instagram and her breezy, stylish vibes fit perfectly in line with the wanderlust, exotic flavours of madebywave.
Chrissabella recently travelled to Tuscany, carrying all her summer essentials in the Cotswolds Beach Bag from my collection. In her own words, “Basket and Straw bags are all the craze at the moment but I've been after a good quality one that will last many summers to come and this light-weight, handmade straw bag ticks all the boxes!”
Indeed, the bright green and candy pink design with tassels and your own choice of bag charms is totally irresistible. The bag is also very roomy and the ideal shape and dize to pop all your essentials in for a day out.
Good Things Come in Small Packages
If you prefer a smaller bag for your beach days out, I’ve recently expanded the madebywave collections to include beach bags in a Medium size. Check out the Cotswolds design here. It’s still spacious but ideal if you don’t have too much to carry or simply prefer a more petite aesthetic.
And because good things always come in threes, the gorgeous Cotswolds Clutch Bag is ideal as a bit of arm candy in its own right, or to pop into the larger beach bags and have all your most important bits easy to hand.
June has been all about the collaborations, as I've also seen luxury swimwear maven Alexandra Miro take the madebywave red straw bag on her travels to Ibiza. The Aztec Red clutch looked beautiful with her summer style set in smooth black and white with passionate red and straw accents.
Alexandra rocked the clutch at a summer wedding on the island, offering the perfect example of how the madebywave bags can be used to dress up or dress down a gorgeous summer outfit.
