Today we're featuring another London inspired collection from our latest collection: Brixton!
Brixton is an area in South London, and it has FLAVOUR! With a vibrant, lively atmosphere, this is where you'll get a true taste of London. Paul loves spending time in Brixton when he wants to escape this busy hustle and bustle of Central London - you wont find many tourists in Brixton, but we think it's one of the hidden gems of this city! Here are some of Paul's favourite things about the area:

Also known as the O2 Academy, one of Londons best music venues is tucked away in the heart of Brixton, which is a perfect fit for such a vibrant, musical place. Brixton has been home to some of the UKs best and brightest musicians - The legendary David Bowie and incredible Adele just to name a couple! Pau...
There's one trend that you couldn't miss on the catwalks of this season's fashion weeks that we absolutely adore. Cross-body Bags. It's nothing new, but this subtle trend is taking its turn in the spotlight and we can't get enough of it.
Dotted throughout Ready to Wear AW17 shows, cross body bags were like the practical garnish on top of the flamboyant cake we call London Fashion Week. The ability of a cross-body bag to become an integrated part of an outfit is one of the things we love about them - they don't look like an add on or an after-thought, they fit in as if they belong there.
We aren't expecting this trend to go anywhere. With summer (and festival season) on the horizon, what's not to love about a timeless bag that keeps your essentials secure, and your hands free for dancing!? You won't hear any complaining from...
When we design our bags we take inspiration from everything around us. Fortunately we are blessed to be surrounded by one of the most inspiring cities in the world: LONDON! Paul's Boutique started as a little stall in a London Market and our roots still have a huge influence on our brand today. We are proud to be British and we like to reflect that in our bags! Today on the blog we are starting a mini series where we will reveal exactly the inspiration behind some of our SS17 Collections that were heavily inspired by London. So lets start with one of our most popular new collections, Shoreditch.
Shoreditch isn't just the name of our badass new holographic collection, it is also a district of our beloved home city. Shoreditch has a lot of history, as the home of an elizabethan theatre where Shakespeare wrote and performed ma...
We're jumping for joy (join us if you like) because our new collection is finally here! We've waited what seems like forever to share it with you, but now we can and we hope you love it as much as we do.
This collection is very close to our hearts and we've pulled out all the stops to make sure you (our incredible Paul's Boutique customers) like what you see! Swoon worthy texture, vibrant colours, and unique new shapes all make an appearance in our latest launch. You'll also see a touch of holographic thrown in for good measure, because who doesn't love holographic!?
"As always - said our Senior Bag Designer Mary Botgatcheva, - we were inspired by the vibrant culture surrounding us every day in London. This city is full of empowered, strong, young women and that's what we honed in on when designing the collection. Who is our PB w...
We are so excited to be kicking off 2017 with our very first blogger feature! We will be regularly featuring our favourite bloggers so you know who we're following!

We were lucky enough to interview Aria recently and here's what she had to say!
When did you start blogging? What inspired you to start?
I actually started blogging in 2008 but I shut down the blog in 2012 because of a job that took all my time (I used to be a handbag maker in London). At the time, I started a blog just to follow the flow, I think. I was reading all of these fashion blogs and I thought I cou...
