Forget Jared Leto, this chequered Bowling Bag (shown above in Brown with Purple Leather Trim) from Hawes & Curtis is the only arm candy you'll need to tap into the bright accessories trend beloved by A-list celebrities for spring / summer 2014. With an RRP of £99, it is available in thirteen colour ways and crafted in the finest printed canvas with a selection of eye-popping leather trims. The bag features luxurious metal hardware bearing the Hawes & Curtis crest.
Myfanwy Morgan, head of buying at Hawes & Curtis, said women were loving the new trend for stand-out hues with yellow a particular favourite.
“While our wardrobes may be packed with simple and understated pieces, it seems we are really enjoying letting loose with the accessories on our arm. I think our bowling bags with that splash of cheeky colour are proving popular because they are fun and an antidote to the grey and wet winter we have had but yet they are still practical and easy to match with any outfit.”
Hawes & Curtis was established in 1913 by Ralph Hawes and Freddie Curtis, with the intention of creating high quality, exclusive clothing for gentlemen. From its infancy, Hawes & Curtis has been acclaimed by royalty and aristocracy alike; most famously by the Duke of Windsor and Earl Mountbatten.
Earlier this year it announced a multi-million-pound franchise deal which will create Hawes & Curtis stores in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Dubai over the next five years.
The deal with Korath Holding represents a $5million investment, with the first store in the World Trade Center Mall in Abu Dhabi at the end of this year.
Further plans include replicating the franchise model in Indonesia and the Far East, as well as the launch of a flagship store in the United States.
