Kolin & William designs are focused on beautiful execution, heritage design, uncompromising quality of materials, and British workmanship. Each bag is handmade by craftsmen in workshops tucked away in the mews of London’s East End.
Designed with an attention to detail rare today, each Kolin & William bag pays homage to another time when things were made and designed to last. There is a classic, timeless aesthetic throughout the range that references the past with a contemporary British twist. Kolin & William bags feature British Millerain wax cotton pockets and accents, solid brass fittings, the smoothest vegetable tanned leathers, and rich and luxuriant drill cotton linings: ingredients that mean every Kolin & William bag will weather well and mature with age.
I am an avid supporter of British Industry, only choosing suppliers and factories within the UK.
Kolin and William will design and produce handmade unisex handbags for the fashion-wear accessories market.
In 2008 I graduated from London College Of Fashion with a BA in Fashion Design Menswear, since leaving I have been keen to set up my own business. I have a passion for handbags / accessories and a strong interest in the British craft movement.
And so it all began while training at the London College of Fashion, the spring board of a long and winding career working as a designer for Alexander McQueen, Preen, and designing for Kappa in Beijing, China for two years amongst many others.
