WHAT’S IN MY BAG
My love affair with handbags began at an early age. My mum loved bags and when she bought a new one I used to watch her transfer her things from her old bag into the new one. It was like a ritual.
I developed a taste for designer handbags after treating myself to a DKNY satchel shortly after I became the manager of agnes b. You can’t rough it when working in a French designer boutique! Since then I’ve gradually acquired a number of handbags ranging from the Chloe ‘Paddington’ to the Balenciaga ‘Twiggy.’ To me, handbags are things of beauty and I’m always excited to view the new season collections.
The reason for this post is to introduce you to the gorgeous illustrations of the Stockholm-based artist Kristina Hultkrantz also known as Emma Kisstina. Kristina draws pretty illustrations of flowers, perfume bottles, handbags and many other pretty things. I was honoured when she contacted me to draw my bag as part of her blogger what’s in my bag series. And with my 40th birthday only a few weeks away, this illustration now marks a milestone in my life. Thank you so much, Kristina!
