Luxury leather goods brand Strathberry has developed a loyal following that customers flock to Mount Street for. Their famous bar closure bags are an understated ‘it’ bag loved by celebrities with elegant taste including Meghan Markle, Katie Holmes, Heidi Klum and Coco Rocha. Designed in Edinburgh, each bag is handcrafted in Spain, sometimes taking up to 20 hours to make. If you’re looking for a beautiful bag, made to the highest specifications without flashy brand names and over-inflated prices, Strathberry is the brand for you.
One of the youngest brands on the street, Strathberry was founded in 2013. The brand has just four stores worldwide so take advantage of this exclusive shopping opportunity while you’re on Mount Street. You can also contact the store to book a personal shopping experience and really get to know the brand, as well as discover some of the products exclusive to this store. They offer a variety of styles from clutch bags to totes and over-the-shoulder styles, as well as a small selection of cashmere scarves, ponchos and capes. The aesthetic is minimalist with architectural structure and colours vary widely so you’ll always have something to match your outfit.
The boutique itself is much like the brand; intimate, simple and elegant with an inviting feel thanks to soft lighting. It opened in 2019 following a successful launch of their only other London boutique in Burlington Arcade. With additional boutiques in the brand’s home town of Edinburgh and another in Shanghai, a global fan base is steadily growing for their distinctive bags.
