Those of us who couldn’t get enough of ‘Downton Abbey’ will be thrilled that one of its leading cast – Lady Mary, aka Michelle Dockery – has teamed with quintessentially British lifestyle label Aspinal of London to create a chic range of handbags.
Applying traditional craftsmanship on timeless silhouettes, ‘The Dockery Collection’ is available in two sizes across nine colours and oozes that understated chic yet with a contemporary twist Aspinal of London is synonymous with.
Attention to detail is second to none, we are particularly smitten with brass and aluminium clasps that result in a clicking sound evoking nostalgic memories. It was in fact, one of Dockery’s grandmother’s vintage bags she fondly remembers from her childhood, that is the main inspiration for the range.
Michelle Dockery says, “To me, Aspinal evokes a sense of British heritage and and to collaborate with them on our new collection has been a wonderfully creative experience. I am thrilled to see the collection in its entirety and I hope that others will take as much pleasure in owning them as we had in creating them.”
We can envision fisticuffs over those beauties between Lady Mary and her ever-suffering sister Lady Edith but luckily you won’t need to fight for a bit of arm candy. The range is now available at all 10 Aspinal of London stores.
