Autumn/Winter is the time for city breaks in my eyes. Sipping rich hot chocolate in Bruges, exploring the Christmas markets in Dresden, or discovering the culture of Vienna. But traveling in style while still feeling your belongings are safe is something everyone seems to struggle with. Enter Kim.
New York-born, London resident and creative director of the luxurious travel bag brand JAUNT, Kim Lai knows what it’s like for the globetrotting women of the world. So this Autumn/Winter she launches her debut collection of clutch bags and totes designed from the finest calf hair and lamb nappa, handcrafted in Italy.
Lai’s signature range and seasonal collections feature casual fresh designs in vibrant print and colour combinations that are also fabulously functional.
The Travel Clutch Autumn range offers an envelope-style clutch in two-tone block colour calf hair with a contrasting nappa back. With a generously padded, satin-lined interior and oversized zipper pull that slips perfectly over your wrist, you know that your belongings are secure, leaving your hands free to explore.
Offered in vibrant pink, electric blue or a classic monochrome, this travel clutch is the ideal size for your iPad and travel documents, which can then be switched for your evening essentials to take you from Eurostar to a five-star dinner!
The Resort Clutch collection mixes vivid prints, using traditional ikat dying techniques and soft nappa leather. With plenty of pockets and a removable strap, I love how versatile these clutches are. The distinctive global inspiration brings a little worldwide culture to your everyday outfit.
The Explorer Tote Autumn selection is more suited to you ladies that need a little more space. JAUNT’s attention to detail and undeniable quality really shines through here with a satin-pique lining and detachable inner pouch for your more treasured pieces. The lightweight leather is perfect for long days roaming the streets of Paris with the added bonus of being easily compressed to fit in your luggage.
So banish those post-summer blues, book yourself a Eurostar ticket and treat yourself to one of these beauties!
