Handbagology The Daniela de Montby brand embraces an avant-garde approach to shake the foundations of the conventional handbag world. Previously referred to as ‘head-made handbag art’, its creator, Daniela de Montby, is a former psychologist who likes to apply psychological concepts to her fashion designs. The De-stress line of handbags based on the ‘bubble wrap’ theory, the Picnic and Bowtie handbag lines, and the one-of-a-kind range, have led to her proudest concept so far: handbags whose designs are based entirely upon the individual customer’s personality.
Customers are invited for a one-to-one session with the designer, and are asked a series of questions which create a mental image in the artist’s mind that she uniquely reproduces in the workshop, reflecting the individuality of the customer. Stop by the boutique in the heart of Chelsea on the Kings Road for a handbagology session, and have the handbag of your dreams tailored and designed to reflect your unique personality. n All bags are available from www.danielademontbyhandbags.com
