Aspinal of London takes inspiration from traditional English gardens and the art of customisation for spring/summer 2016. Botanical and butterfly prints adorn slim clutches and totes, while their Chameleon bag line allows customers to choose from over 1500 options, with bespoke choices available for trim, handle and strap colour combinations.

Integrated technology is another focus for 2016; the Marleybone Tech tote and the pouch-like Power Clutch come with hidden power packs to keep phones and tablets fully charged while on the move.

Sumptuous textures are also key, with tan croc leather and an array of printed pony hair. Neutrals overlaid with metallics are new to the collection – we love the mini Marylebone in soft taupe with silver stripes – while vivid brights such as emerald green, magenta and hot orange will appeal come high-summer.

Sleek structure adds substance to the collection, highlights include the vintage inspired Elizabeth, a new addition to the Letterbox family and the Scarlett Box Clutch. Another Team OP favourite is the Mini trunk clutch – a miniature boxy style complete with hardware details and a practical across-body strap.
