Kind of want a Launer bag...?
I know, I know, it's the most old school granny bag of all time. It's by a company in England named Launer - they make the Queen's handbags, and there is something in the utter simplicity and forceful dedication to never follow a fashion or make anything other than a bog standard smart bag for old ladies that really appeals to me. Just think - me and Queen having something in common!
I am fascinated by companies like Launer. Why don't they make more of their heritage and the fact that for the last 40 years Queen Elizabeth II has been carrying one of these? After all, look what Diana did for Dior bags. Have you ever heard of Launer?
