It goes without saying that Grazia Daily has already road-tested Kurt Geiger’s Everything but the Dress accessories of eye-catching jewellery and talking-point handbags. And being such style-setters, it was only a matter of time before those A-list types were following in our fashionable footsteps *tries to look modest* So who’s the latest to join the KG bandwagon? None other than catwalker extraordinaire Anja Rubik.
Yep, Anja was spotted hopping from show to show during Paris Fashion Week sporting the brand’s delicious Humbug clutch. Nonchantly tucked under her arm, the navy accessory made of European nubuck leather is the cool girl’s alternative to big bulky bags, n'est-ce pas? Personally, we’ve got our hungry eye on the colour-popping green variety but who are we to question Lady Rubik?
In fact, it seems the superduper model is developing quite an attachment to KG's navy goodies. During London Fashion Week, Grazia Daily bumped into Anja chatting to Creative Director Rebecca Farrar-Hockley at the Everything but the Dress launch party and what was she holding? Yep, another clutch in blue, this time studded and from the brand's S/S '12 collection. See? A girl with good taste.
Us Graziettas are also rather fond of flashing our pennies in the semi-transparent pouches (costing a bargaintastic £30, kids!) and would you believe it, so is Anja! ‘At the moment I’m using the large Perspex pouches as a clutch,’ Rebecca Farrar-Hockley tells us. ‘Again for Spring functionality is key. The clever zip compartments and wrist straps mean you can double up on almost all of the smaller accessories as a clutch bag too’. A wallet-meets-clutch, you say? We’ll take one in every colour, please.
Granted, it comes as no surprise to see the leggy lovely dressing up her off-duty outfits with Kurt Geiger gems. As the face of their Spring / Summer 2012 campaign, no doubt Anja has a fabulous jewel-coloured clutch, shoe, earring to match her every whim. We’ve also discovered that as well as fab footwear, Anja has been signed up to model the brand’s new sunglasses range and, most excitingly, their FIRST. EVER bikini! That we can’t wait to see.
While we’re on the matter, why not play stylist yourself and dress up our very own Kiki Georgiou who is waiting for you at graziadaily.co.uk/kurtgeiger. Did we mention you could be in with a chance of WINNING up to £1,000 to spend on the Everything but the Dress collection? Yes, we thought you’d like that. Now what are you waiting for?
