WORLD’s inaugural leather goods collection includes 3 styles of bag in 3 theme colours and each style has 1 pop colour, in an extremely limited edition.The range reflects WORLD’s aspirational ethos as well as remaining characterful and independent.
The 3 styles are named after each of the cities where WORLD has its flagship retail stores, reflecting that city in the bags design and personality. Colour being an integral element to the label’s philosophy meant the shades selected were all important. To define the palette WORLD took inspiration from the depths of nature using tones found in the ground or in the ocean such as Coal, Coral, Clay, Tanzanite, Peridot and Tourmaline.
When WORLD began working on their handcrafted pebble leather bag collection, they thought about every probability, to ensure the range was exceptional in luxury, as well as interspersing with design, practicality, colour, suppleness, grain and desirability. Each bag arrives in a WORLD 'Map' designed travel bag cover, pulled together with leather rouleau loop. "All accessories say so much about a person, and probably nothing more so than the bag you carry" says Denise L'Estrange-Corbet. "When we created the tote, I carried the prototype around with me for 6 months, to see how it performed, and was asked everyday 'Where did you buy your bag?' "and I knew we were on to a winner". "People can often let themselves down, as they will spend an enormous amount of time on their outfit, but not what the carry, and it says so much about who you are, it is as important as everything else you wear".
