After spending eight years globetrotting and working internationally as a fashion editor, Christchurch-born Anna White has returned home to launch her eponymous leatherwear collection. The enduring and fad-forgoing style of fashionable women White encountered on her travels is at the heart of her approach to design â€“ a desire to create classic pieces with subtle surprises inspires her.
We think: A homegrown take on practical luxury is just what weâ€™ve been waiting for.
She says: â€śI want the women who carry my bags to form a relationship with them, to move around with them and take them on a journey.â€ť
Must-have: Whiteâ€™s signature AW1 tote in Deepsea. The midnight shade of navy adds a contemporary twist to Whiteâ€™s timeless design.
