As you know, yesterday I went to London for some press days and here are the photos from the Lulu Guinness Autumn/Winter 2011 collection. Unfortunately I didn’t get to meet Lulu herself as she went home but seeing her amazing bags definitely made up for it! The Lips clutches are still my favourites, they are even more beautiful in person! I adore the crystal ones, the fuchsia crystal especially. I saw her new collection of fan bags which were embellished with crystals and absolutely amazing!
The leather Studded Bow Wanda bag is Lulu’s favourite bag from the collection. It’s the perfect sized tote and the studs really add an edge to the dainty bow detail, I think it would suit anyone! I love it. The postcard clutches were also really cute and a lot of her patent and nappa handbags have the lips print inside the quilted stitching which I find to be really sweet! I also loved the floral print, the shop front window bags, the leopard print and the studs. Even the face bags have the eyes closed on the back. There is so much detail for this coming season! Please click this blog post to see all of the bags and to see the room decor and a very pretty gift bag I got given!

The press day was held at the Savile Club in Mayfair and it was absolutely gorgeous inside! I loved the old and posh style decor, the way the staircase splits in two, the decorations and engravings on the pillars and ceilings, the old paintings and the mini chandeliers, it was really stunning!
Here is the very sweet gift bag I got given. I had the look book cards in there and to my suprise, I completely did not expect this, a Lulu Guinness purse! It’s got 2 singing birds on the front and made from a black satin material. It’s so cute and I know I am going to be using it for my lipsticks, glosses and eye shadow pens! Now next on my list of things to do is buy a lips clutch!
Absolutely fantastic Lorna, and well done to Lulu, what an amazing fabulous collection… Your talents are endless Lorna I wish you so well xxx
She makes some beautiful bags, and the place you went looks amazing too 🙂 Nice gift bag you received as well.
Thank you Ali and Adam, I appreciate that! She really does make amazing ones! I love them! 🙂
Yes you should get a lip clutch! It’s just such a bummer how expensive some of them are! I vote the studs one should make its way into your collection!
Naturally I want the pink Perspex or the pink swarovski crystal one 🙂 it’s gotta be pink! Which do you like?
I’m a complete sucker for the studs!
I figured you might love that one the most since you mentioned it lol!
omg how fun! That is awesome! Love the lip picture!
love from San Francisco,
I’m glad you like them 🙂
A lot of eyes. http://wp.me/p5HLb-dfP
Great job you did there on the new collection, got me all excited and looking forward to July! I recently got my dolly bag from the spring summer collection and saw that the fall winter one has another version of it with lovely winter wear! I couldn’t see clearly from the pic but is this later version without the buttons where u can pop the outfits on and off? Since u have seen it in the flesh I thought u’r the best person to ask! 🙂
Hi 🙂 From what I saw it looked like they were stitched on, it didn’t look like you could remove them like you can on the exclusive Dolly bag, I didn’t pay much attention to that particular bag though as I was obsessed with the lips clutches, haha! Would you like me to find out for sure for you?
Hi Lorna I’m a huge fan of those hot lips too! 😀 It’s sweet of you to offer to help me! You have a way to find out for sure? Whether the outfits are stitched on? It’ll be great to know, cos I haven’t been able to get more info or clearer pictures of that bag 🙁
Yeah sure, I know the Lulu Guinness team so I can just ask 🙂 I will let you know as soon as I find out! It will probably be next week since it’s the weekend now! 🙂
That’ll be great! Thanks Lorna 🙂
Babe hope I’m not asking too much if I ask you to also help me find out if the outfits are made of felt, like the 1st dolly? 😛
I’ll send you the high res image I have of them 🙂 See if it helps but I can ask as well 🙂
Hi Evonne! They are sewn on, you can’t remove them and here are some other details about the bag for you 🙂
Details on the dolly bag:
Bags are patent material.
Black coat is felt with embroidery lips detail.
Leopard print coat is embroidered with patent buttons.
Red dress is felt.
White top is felt and red trousers are embroidered.
The doll itself is printed on with patent hair clips, shoes and felt gloves!
Hi Lorna! Thanks for the detailed descriptions! 🙂 Though I already have the first dolly bag the fabulous outfits on this second one are too cute to miss! 😛 Just wondering why did Lulu not design the outfits to be changeable like the first one..
I have no idea, I guess every season designers like to change up their original designs to make them new but maybe it’s because the original dolly bag was a limited edition one and this one isn’t?
