Danielle Foster bags








Early January I finally managed to book in a visit I had been planning for months; I took myself down to east London to visit the incredibly talented handbag designer Danielle Foster.  I remember coming across her designs every now and then but when I glanced through her fall look book, page after page filled with her signature style beautifully heavy leather bags, I simply went yes yes yes. I did not just want a bag, I wanted to see how these beauties got made, know everything about them and of course take the time to meet the designer herself.

And so I did, the model/designer was just as humble to meet me as I was to meet her, when I spent an hour or so sipping mint tea in her little studio. I placed two orders, one of them is being made in pic one, because if you have an opportunity to own a human hair tote - you really should.

Thank you Danielle for having me over, the collection is now online as a newcomer at Bengt, make sure to check the collection out here.

I've always been fascinated with pieces that can be worn in various ways. This coat exemplifies just that. Adding a funky finish to any look, casual or polished. I like its edgy vibe. The soft knit clutch from Zara is so fun to pair with my winter staples. The only drawback is how much it pills against my coats :( luckily, I carry a lint-roller in my purse for such occasions.. so, all ends well. I chose red as the pop of color this time (I've always had a torrid affair with the color!) My red lipstick courtesy of Maybelline and the sweater, Rag & Bone.

Mini interview with Loeffler Randall and Late Afternoon

LR: What is your starting point for putting a look together?
LA: I always pick one piece that I know I want to wear, like a pair of shoes or a great jacket. Then I just build the rest of the look around the item. I pretty much try things on until the look feels "right".


LR:What current trends do you love and hate?
LA: I'm totally smitten with pastels and mint. I really don't mind dressing like a giant cupcake. I'm also loving neon and pajama dressing. A trend I'm not feeling? Overalls. Not for me.

LR:What are your favorite Los Angeles treasure troves?
LA: The Rose Bowl flea market is definitely one of my favorite places to find gems, as well as the Amsterdam Modern in Silverlake. I'm also obsessed with Pepe's for amazing antique furniture.


LR:How did you first discover Loeffler Randall?
LA: I remember working with an intern 3 years ago who wore the most amazing shoes all the time. Every time I asked what designer the shoes were, she'd always respond back with "oh they're Loeffler Randall". And that's what started my love affair with LR.

See how I've styled my new Loeffler Randalls here, here, and here.
