DeMellier, winner of an Emerging Talent prize at last year’s Walpole British Luxury Awards, has already caught the eye of style heroes from the Duchess of Sussex to Emily Blunt and Beyoncé. For autumn/winter 2019, it has launched a range of bags named after Canadian and European cities: the compact Vancouver (from £340) with round edges and an adjustable strap; the angular Montreal (from £425) with a rigid handle; the Mini Rome (from £315) with minimalist brass details; and the small cross-body Nano Venice (from £280), decorated with a playful tassel.

Under its “A Bag, A Life” initiative, DeMellier works hand-in-hand with the international children’s charity SOS Children’s Villages. For every bag sold, the brand’s founder Mireia Llusia-Lindh funds vaccines and treatments for children in need in countries such as Somalia, where currently one in six children do not live to see their sixth birthday.
