Strong prints and bold textural fabrics are always a great way for designers to inject some obvious vintage inspiration into their pieces, but these can often be the choices that are hardest to wear in clothing. Using both those things in an easy to wear statement piece, this Leopard Joanie Handbag from Fred Flare has tons of retro charm.
The Joanie range is inspired by Ella's personal collection of vintage tea plates, with family heirlooms and charity shop finds updated and re-imagined to create a distinctive pattern with a contemporary flavour.
The range incorporates everything you need to hold a stylish tea party; bone-china tea-cups and dessert plates, napkins and a table runner – a great reason to get an apron on and get baking.
