BagatellesandCo Designer Feature:
I grew up in sunny Tunisia, by the beach, in a house full of plants, paintings and beautiful fabrics, spending my childhood drawing, reading, or dressing up in my mum’s clothes with my sister…
I then moved to Paris to study Textile and Fashion design. After a while, longing for new adventures, I decided to move to London and after a degree at Central Saint Martins College, I worked several years as a freelance Designer/Tailor.
Bagatelles&co started last summer when I was desperately looking for a nice evening bag for a wedding I was attending. I couldn’t find anything beautiful yet affordable so I ended up making my own…! I haven’t stopped making bags since then!
Trying to make my products the most eco friendly possible, I source mostly from vintage silks, remnants and end of rolls of tie silk, brocade, furnishing textiles and Liberty cotton, thus avoiding waste.
I combine my experience as a Pattern cutter and textile Designer to create purses and clutches with unique shapes associated to vibrant colours and beautiful fabrics. My designs are created for a playful and feminine girl who enjoys life, daydreaming, and breathes a kind of sweet elegance.
Spring garden Gigi purse. It has been my best seller so far. It represents very well bagatelles&co with its cute and voluptuous shape associated to bright and feminine colours, sweet and elegant at the same time.
Visitors will find change purses, clutches and satchel bags as well as some brooches, earrings and hair accessories…
