B&W designer Simon reveals tomorrow’s jewelled bag


Model with Butler & Wilson Jewelled Clutch BagHello,

It's hard to believe but it's almost Christmas, and to add a little glamour to the holiday season Butler & Wilson have designed the perfect bag just for QVC!

It's ideal for those pre-Christmas office parties right through to your annual New Year's bash! In four stunning colourways it's just the accessory to go with your favourite little black dress… or red dress… or blue dress – you get the idea! We caught up with designer Simon Wilson, who tells us more.

Simon WilsonTell us about your Today's Special Value clutch bag

I'm so excited about our TSV bag! What I've designed is an evening bag that is beautiful but also functional; it's large enough to fit your mobile, cards, make-up and more. I think everyone needs at least one evening bag!

You never know when you'll get invited to a party, dinner or just going out with friends and our TSV has that B&W glamour that will look amazing with whatever you're wearing. Take a look at the colours available below!

What inspired the design?

I'm always inspired by an antique feeling simply because of the workmanship and handcrafting. Our TSV is all hand-stitched and it can take a whole day just to make two bags, and for all the crafters you'll really appreciate the work that has gone into these bags. Also the colours are perfect to work with anything you're wearing.

How would you style the bag?

It depends on your personal style, you can wear these bags with a simple black dress and a great pair of earrings or you can really go mad (my sort of girls) and have the bag, a full-on glamorous dress, necklace etc. You all know who you are!!!

Which celebrity would you love to see carrying your designs?

I'm never really excited by celebrities; I get just as excited seeing my customers wearing B&W. We get so many stars in the shops; we had Kimora Lee Simmonds and her husband, the actor Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator) in yesterday. He's great, and they bought half the shop but all my QVC customers know that when I meet them in the shop I'm always commenting about what they're wearing.

What are the accessory trends for the season?

I never really follow trends; if you buy something beautiful it will always be beautiful!!! The secret is to create your own style and you all know what basically suits you, but then it's good to go a bit wild sometimes!!

    I bought a bronze/gold holdall with a design of a lion head on each side, in the South Molton Street shop in January last. It is a BLING design. I used this bag travelling through the airport and on an Emirates flight where it attracted alot of very favourable attention. I have also used it very recently at The Atlantis, I was also carrying a Bracher Emden bag and a Mulberry Alexa – guess which bag got the looks? Lovely jewellery and accessories from a designer who has a genuine interest in his customers and is also kind and takes time to speak, a very down to earth and approachable ‘fun’ guy. Power to the people and to Simon Wilson!!

    My daughter and I both have a lot of Butler & Wilson – jewellery and bags. We get lots of positive comments when wearing them. Always well made and different to what’s on offer on the High Street. Thanks Simon, and QVC for the designs and the fab prices.
