Lulu Guinness - "Kiss and Make-Up"

First sold through Liberty’s of London in 1989, Lulu Guinness has become synonymous with old school girly glamour. Awarded an OBE in 2006, many of her pieces have become highly sought after collectible items, with the Florist Basket and the Violet Hanging Basket just two of the designs which have been included in a permanent fashion collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

To this day Lulu Guinness has remained true to her original philosophy: why keep all your most glamorous things for special occasions? Her AW10 collection themed “kiss and make-up” certainly delivers on the glamour, with inspiration coming from vintage handbags, porcelain dolls and 60’s model Peggy Moffit.

Lips, as ever, feature prominently in the collection, with eyes getting a look-in too, especially on the Doll Face and Eyelash Tokyo bags and purses. It’s another wonderful collection full of the glamorous and very British essence that we have come to know and love.
