It’s December! The Christmas decorations are up; the tree is lit; and the festive music is on repeat – it’s time to look back on 2017 and ahead to all the exciting things planned for 2018.
We started the year with our new Madison Backpacks and Charlie Mini Bags in beautiful colours which were so popular, that they were quickly adopted as staples in our signature collections. In particular, our Stone/Green and Mocha/Orange Italian leather colour combinations have been customer favourites!
We also launched our first iteration of the pop-up brand collective+ on the prestigious South Molton Street in Mayfair, London. In this luxury boutique, we curated a group of independent female designers that shared our passion for unique design and quality craftsmanship. This was our most successful shop to date and we had amazing feedback from customers who enjoyed meeting the designers and hearing the stories behind the brands in person.
This summer also saw our launch on the Harvey Nichols website! All of our designs, from the luxurious clutch bags to the sophisticated Amy Work Bag found new homes with Harvey Nichols customers who loved our brand aesthetic. We look forward to continuing our partnership with this esteemed platform in the new year.
The rest of the year saw us travelling to Dubai on a trade mission to meet new buyers, Paris Fashion week to connect with our customers and to various Italian towns on a search for a new manufacturer. Needless to say it has been a busy few months leading into this holiday season and we are excited about what’s to come!
The new logo that we launched earlier this year on our website will make its way onto our handbags beginning next season. We have two new beautiful colour combinations in the Spring that will make you swoon and two new handbag styles that you will love! By popular demand, I have been working on designing new smaller purses, wallets and accessories. These will hopefully make their debut in the new year as well!
You will of course be able to see all the additions to our collection on our website and Harveynichols.com in the Spring and the plan is to open another iteration of our designer pop-up collective+ at the same time. We know you love to see and try our handbags in person and I know that I love to meet our customers old and new!
Thank you so much for all your support this year. We could not have done it without you! So from all of us here at Stacy Chan, have a happy and healthy holiday season - we look forward to seeing you in 2018!
