Northern Quarter X Personal Style

As soon as the new Kensington iKat clutch bag was completed it was instantly added to my wardrobe, in fact it didn't even get a chance to see the inside of my wardrobe. It was out and about straight away trotting around Manchester's Northern Quarter whilst I headed to meetings. It's constructed from shower proof cotton nylon, extremely useful as seconds after intern Emily snapped these pics the heavens opened.
I painted the blue washed iKat print in the studio, scanned it in and digitised the painting to become a really photographic and texturised print for clutch bags, phone cases and cushion covers. Inspired by boho-luxe vibes (seen here on my Urban Surfside pinterest board), carrying this clutch is like carrying a little slice of beachy art around the bustling streets of Manchester.

Life's a beach || Abersoch

Beach, sea & sand :-)
There is no better recipe.

If you follow me on snapchat and instagram you will have seen that I've been spending loads of time in Abersoch recently and of course I couldn't resist taking several hundred photographs of the beautiful surroundings. 

All the clutch bags at www.riannaphillips.com are crafted from a waterproof cotton nylon which makes them the perfect beach companion. Since I set my little brand up the majority of customers who shop at the e-boutique are Australian, so it seemed completely essentials to make sure my accessories are ready to hit the beach! Being waterproof however also means that they are very British-proof too, it rains like 99% of the time here!
