MEET BRIX + BAILEY
You might have only just found Brix + Bailey - but if you want to know more about the brand, here are a few things that might interest you.
By following their own instincts, and sticking to their own aesthetic, they have quietly and determinedly built a transparent, successful, contemporary leather bag and accessory brand, featuring totes, backpacks, clutches and more, defined entirely by themselves, always incorporating eco-friendly materials and applying fair trade sourcing practises throughout the supply chain.
The seasonal collections, manufactured in Italy ( some might mistake them for family such is the bond! ) combine hand illustrated luxury linings featuring illustrations from the brands archives, along with sustainable and ethically sourced premium leathers and trims, resulting in sophisticated and unexpected leather bags for women and men. They love it. About it, they are deeply ambitious.
Stocked in over 350 outlets worldwide, Brix + Bailey is the brainchild of a transatlantic sibling design duo. There’s Brix [ sister] whose aesthetic was forged in London, and Bailey [ brother] who leans more towards the influences of New York.
Together, they established two fashion stores in London in the early 2000s before realising creating the ultimate seasonless bags and accessories for men and women, with a touch of hidden magic in the form of their illustrations were what really made their hearts beat faster. The duo wanted the business to become whatever it could be and were open to all that it would be.
Influenced by their upbringing in a family in love with fashion, working with premium Italian leather, and giving free rein to their imagination, they launched the first charming Brix + Bailey bags and accessory collection in 2014 —followed by a collaboration at London Fashion Week, a feature in Vogue and entering the wonderful world of brand licensing collaborating with TSBA Group to produce licensed products under the Brix + Bailey brand.
...Designed without the obsession of being contemporary...
Discerning customers around the world were charmed by their hidden details ( think magical hand-drawn illustrations and a bold approach to colour ) coupled with an unerring eye for detail and a knack with whimsy and wit- and the rest is history.
Rumour has it that a new watch line designed together as a family is in work. Watch this space…
