Blu Studios

Buttery metallic leather, luxuriously soft suede in beautiful earthy tones, strong gold hardware…swooning already? All hail Blu Studios- the latest addition to the WSd treasure trove.

This sumptuous British brand specialise in hand made leather bags and accessories, striving to combine ‘contemporary luxury with everyday wearability’.

Chloe Kent, who personally designs and manufactures every item, originally met Sarah at the Clothes Show when Blu Studios HQ was based at Chloe’s dining room table. Now Chloe works from a small studio in the centre of Norwich, but the one thing that hasn’t changed is her dedication to this independent business. A trained fashion designer, Chloe told WSd that her accessory line was actually a happy accident… “I was in fact creating a backpack for my boyfriend and discovered how much I loved it. I've always enjoyed working with more challenging materials and leather is a material that requires precise technique and patience, even on the most simplistic of designs”. 

We have a gorgeous selection of Blu pieces in store…

Add a Galactic touch to your outfit with the Metallic Leather Backpack (£160). This beauty is ultra spacious and includes handy internal pockets. A full suede lining adds lashings of extra luxury, while the magnetic fastening and drawstring feature make it a secure choice for city exploring.

Available in micro, midi or maxi size the Blu clutch selection is dreamy. What better way to brighten up your wardrobe than with a flash of molten metal? The Metallic Leather Midi Clutch (£60) is a must-have plush statement piece. Pair this wonder with the Neon Rose denim boiler suit (£39) for a hint of gilded colour.

The classic clutch has been given an injection of crisp colour with gorgeous forest green, strong and elegant navy and delectable deep berry shades. Contrasting coloured suede adorns each lining adding to the supreme quality of every bag.

Even your flats for the way home will fit in the maxi clutch! (£80) Style it with the Vero Moda Maggi white shirt (£32) and denim skinnies (£40) for an ideal day to night look.

The micro clutch is the ultimate make up bag (£28). The coin purse is made with the same precision, fully lined in contrasting leather or suede & is only £10! Available in suede black or metallic... 

The tote bag (£140) is perfectly proportioned for all your day-to-day needs. Blu’s suede tote is an ideal companion for travelling or makes for a super stylish laptop bag.

Blu is passionate about dedicated craftsmanship and ‘shunning the norm of mass production’. The ethos is clear in the skilled design and impeccable artistry of every single piece. Only the highest quality materials are used, with luxurious leather at the fore.

We absolutely adore the philosophy of this brand and the simplicity yet superiority of design. A Blu bag, whatever its form, will have a fab and lasting impact on your accessory game, so pop into WSd HQ for some suede swooning and leather lux.

Why not commission your own bespoke Blu piece? Keep your eyes peeled, as the Blu made to measure service will be launched at WSd HQ very soon.  We’re very excited to be working with Blu studios and collaborating on fab future projects. Watch this space!
