About Established in 2011 by London College of Fashion graduate Bernice Angelique, her eponymous label is a contemporary interpretation of traditional luxury. Inspired by Angelique’s native South Africa, the collection of ostrich hide handbags features the grainy texture of the exotic skins in natural shades of cognac, almond, amber and tan. In contradiction to these tactile surfaces and organic colourations are smoother, non-quilled skins in sharp tones of crystal blue, violet, chartreuse, white, charcoal and metallic. Influences from a classic design education and global sensibilities combine with spirited African musings to create a product that is as luxurious and indulgent as it is current and cutting edge. Considered use of detail keeps the focus on the purity of form and function. Architectural shapes and clean styling on elongated clutches, envelope pouches, rectangular totes and boxy shoulder bags are finished with polished French and Italian hardware in yellow gold, rose gold or palladium. Sustainability and Social Responsibility Sustainability, empowerment and a desire to support local trade are at the foundations of the brand. Humane, environmentally-responsible and globallyaccredited standards are employed from the farming stage to the tanning process with a determination to use the majority of the hide harvested. Manufactured in Namibia by local artisans, Bernice Angelique pieces are handmade using time- honoured techniques to cut, sand, burnish and paint the skins. Previously unskilled women are afforded intensive training, learning a trade and gaining the stability of on-going employment.
