Yesterday evening saw the spring/summer 2013 collection launch at the Sarah Forsyth Boutique, on Kings Road, Chelsea. All I can say is get ready to dazzle with vibrant hues of fuchsia, rouge, turquoise, neutrals and shimmering metallics , all n the form of snakeskin clutches.
Not to mention the  gorgeous  fringed handbags and black, bold feather purses- giving the collection a definite boho chic flare. My personal favourite was a black suede with snakeskin gold fastening – giving the clutch a stylish touch. Low key elements of luxury, with a glamorous edge.
After seeing the gorgeous and flamboyant collection, the evening was followed by Beaufort House, Kings Road, Chelsea, where discussions of the launch continued over a few glasses of  free white wine and guests were given goodie bags with a little snakeskin surprise.
Here I managed to grab a moment with the designer, Sarah Forsyth who told me of her inspirations for the collection, “Some of my inspiration was taken from the vibrant colours of Andy Warhol’s pop art and Tuscany. The collection is eclectic and obtainable. I wanted to create a collection that was all real skins but priced so that it is accessible for young girls”.  It’s refreshing to hear a designer who wants to create pieces that don’t have an totally outrageous price tag.
Pick your shade, whether you prefer a  natural coloured snakeskin, or a shimmering, colour-popping, two tone piece, there really is something in this collection for everyone- it’s affordable too!
