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 – a desire to create classic pieces with subtle surprises inspires her.
We think: A homegrown take on practical luxury is just what we’ve been waiting for.
She says: “I want the women who carry my bags to form a relationship with them, to move around with them and take them on a journey.”
Must-have: White’s signature AW1 tote in Deepsea. The midnight shade of navy adds a contemporary twist to White’s timeless design.
