By  |  0 Comments

Correct me if I’m wrong, but a handbag has the power to transform any outfit. And for summer 2023, the latest trends hone in on the story behind the accessory, rather than just the appearance.

When it comes to combining creative flare with effortless style, British vegan handbag brand Vendula London is the brand to have on your radar.

Making waves in the fashion industry with its quirky and colourful designs, the brand’s unique aesthetic has garnered a growing number of fans, including celebrities and influencers. Its goal is to become the quirkiest vegan handbag brand in the UK, and with its playful designs and commitment to quality, it is well on its way.

Vendula London was launched in 2003 after a chance meeting between co-founders Raymond Lam and Vendula Zemanova. Both were passionate about animal welfare and wanted to create beautiful fashion pieces without harming animals. They focused on using vegan materials and high-quality craftsmanship to produce unique and beautiful bags.

Today, Vendula London is a thriving business with a dedicated team that launches at least 20 collections each year. Each collection has a different theme, ensuring that there is something to suit everyone’s tastes. It has a vibrant and engaged community of fans, lovingly called Vendulettes, who are passionate and loyal.

“We want Vendula London to be for everyone – our aim is to make people smile and ask ‘where did you get that bag?” Raymond Lam, CEO of Vendula London, said. “Our bags are statement pieces that ignite something in each and every buyer – they may love it because it reminds them of a fun memory, or it has their favourite pastime featured, or even their favourite animal! Whoever they are, our aim is to make them smile.

“When designing our bags, we strive to create things that spark interest – it all comes down to the details. We love to find new and innovative ways of surprising our customers – from new embroidery techniques to 3D elements – we want all of our bags to feature that wow factor that makes our bags truly unique.”

As animal lovers, the makers behind Vendula London are proud to only use vegan materials in its collections. They deeply care about the planet and its people, even ensuring that the glue used during production is animal-free. It has also been certified by The Vegetarian Society as vegan for the past five years.

In recognition of its innovative designs and commitment to veganism, Vendula London won the “Most Innovative Vegan Handbag Brand” award by Lux Global Vegan in both 2021 and 2022. It is also working towards becoming fully transparent in reporting its carbon footprint and resource consumption.

Right now, I’m obsessed with buyoant ‘Gardens of Mexico’ collection, which has taken inspiration from flora and fauna from all over the world.

The designs are so unique and eye-catching, with vibrant colours and intricate detailing that really make each piece stand out.

The bags are also very well-made and durable, with high-quality materials that feel sturdy and long-lasting. I love the attention to detail, such as the embroidered flowers and 3D cactus appliques, which add an extra element of fun and whimsy to the designs.

One of my favourite things about this range is the variety of styles available, from the compact crossbody bag to the roomy tote bag, each with its own unique design and practical features. They’re also very versatile and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Raymond continued: “Our Gardens of the World Mexico range was inspired by the beautiful walled gardens you can find in Mexico – we were very inspired by the tropical colours of Mexican florals so we incorporated this to make the fun and colourful designs.”

Vendula London is celebrating 20 years of fabulous vegan handbags in 2023 and will release a special celebration collection later this year. The brand has a flagship store at Gabriel’s Wharf in London’s South Bank and other stores worldwide. Follow it on social media to keep up with its latest news and fabulous designs.

Overall, Vendula London is a brand that fashion lovers can feel good about supporting. With its commitment to veganism, unique designs, and dedication to quality, it is paving the way for a more ethical and sustainable fashion industry.
