The Morphbag by GSK

Winter gloom be gone! Spring is here - and with it a gorgeous range of eco-friendly designer handbags that are also super practical.

You know when you love something so much you don’t want to tell everyone else about it because it’s your secret squirrel 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 brand new 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.

Made up of a reversible tote designed to fit your daytime essentials, a stylish crossbody bag, and a clutch, 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 – but several years ago she moved into interior design.

And then, as her daughter and her friends went off to university and started their own careers, she spotted a change in needs of the style-conscious woman. She noticed that women needed different looks for different occasions, a bag that would take them from day to night, without breaking the bank.

And so the Morphbag by GSK was born – a handbag designed hit that balance of practicality, style, function and form.

But these bags are 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!
