Before Meghan Markle became the Duchess of Sussex, there was a great amount of speculation – as there remains – about what brands she would turn to to build her royal wardrobe and how she would use her powerful fashion force to showcase more British brands than she may have in the past as she joined the British Royal Family.
Back in December 2017, we predicted that Meghan would turn to a British brand that was not only popular with celebrities, but members of the Royal Family themselves, DeMellier. For Meghan’s first visit to Wales, she showed us that we were right in our assumption when she carried DeMellier’s Mini Venice in Forest Green, which has gone on to be a favourite for many readers, including our Editor Christine (who had it before Meghan did!)
Meghan often looks to the same brands for repeat wears for engagements, and with the new collection that has just been released by DeMellier, there are many bags in their collection we can see Meghan turning to. Bags like….
While Meghan loves a good clutch, there will soon be a small person in her life she’ll need to start carrying around a few essentials for – and as we saw when she landed in Australia, she now has documents and other requirements to carry with her.
A great tote bag sized handbag like the ‘Barcelona’, especially with its exterior zippered pockets, would be perfect for Meghan’s coming engagements both personally and professionally. She can fit both official documents as well as extras such as a baby kit thanks to the multiple internal compartments.
For public events, we largely see Meghan carrying clutches or crossbody bags. We think that the simple sophistication of the ‘Athens’ clutch would be perfect for future Meghan royal engagements.
We love the wide variety of colours & textures that the bag is available in… AND you can get your initial in solid brass attached to it, as well as monogramming the strap.
Another great option for Meghan (hint, hint, KP!) would be the ‘Oslo’ cross-body bag as we know she often loves to wear cross-body bags to have her hands free during official engagements.
The mixture of textures on the bag add some visual interest which make the bag pop and we could see this being a great way to fly the British fashion brand while also sticking true to her minimalist fashion sense.
