The Morphbag by GSK

Stylish, sustainable and super luxe, this gorgeous range of vegan handbags are as practical as they are lovely.

You know when you love something so much you don’t want to tell everyone else about it because it’s your secret special thing? That’s kind of how I feel about this super-cool Italian designed handbag. Plus I don’t want to bump into you all carrying the same tote as me, obviously. But being a journalist, I’m an inveterate blabbermouth so I’ve decided to share the love and explain exactly why adore this Surrey brand – and I think you will too.

Surrey-based designer Giovanna Sessi-Knott has created a stunning line of luxury handbags designed to work with women’s lifestyles taking them effortlessly from day to night.

These three-in-one handbags are super stylish, super practical, and made from Peta-approved vegan leather – so they’re also ticking that super important ethical box. This is slow fashion at its best. They’re classically designed – so they won’t date – and come in three colour-coordinated designs including a reversible tote, a stylish crossbody bag, and a clutch.

If ever there was a bag for life, this is it. And oh, so stylish and lovely it is too. They’re brilliantly priced too at £289 for the full set.

The Morphbag is available in six classic colour combinations – onyx and rose gold, black forest green and metallic mushroom, deep sea and cloud, blackberry and currant, chocolate and pralines, and green pepper and mustard.

They’re all gorgeous colour choices – and I’m a bit stuck as to which one I love most. I think though, the rose gold and black would be my choice.

I also love the story behind their creation. Born in Italy and raised in Vienna – but now living in Surrey – Giovanna grew up around fashion and design, watching as her father worked throughout the fashion industry. Her own career started in finance – before moved into interior design and running her own London-based interior design firm.

But a busy woman needs an every-day handbag that’s practical for work, travel and daily life – but also looks fabulous!

Inspired by her own experiences Giovanna set out to redefine “the every-day handbag”. And so the Morphbag by GSK was born – a handbag designed to hit that balance of practicality, style, function and form.

A passionate advocate of slow fashion, Giovanna has also designed a set of bags that is also firmly in the cruelty-free camp – made from premium faux leather that’s been certified vegan. The Morphbag has also been awarded Best Slow Fashion Brand as well as a Symbol of Excellence by Eluxe Magazine in their Sustainable Luxury Awards. They’ve been given a big thumbs up from Peta. And us too!
