Inspired by nature, aubergine (also known as eggplant or plum) is the bold and sensual colour you need for Fall.


Long associated with royals and riches, this deeper take on purple will add a spiritual allure to your wardrobe. Whether you're trying to look elegant and understated, slinky and glamorous, or two steps ahead of the curve, why not try one of our newest handbags in this warm and luxurious colour?

Given its romantic and sophisticated nature, this intense purple colour lends an air of luxury to any outfit. Plus, unlike its cooler sister, violet, its warmth flatters every skin tone and, like navy, it's subtle enough to serve as a neutral. I especially love it in a monochrome look. For a more dramatic statement, try pairing it with another bold colour such as a deep red, contrasting burnt orange or my personal favourite, forest green.

I fell in love with aubergine when I was researching trends and leathers at the leather shows I attended last year. I decided to pair it with a contrasting forest green because the combination truly represents my idea of Fall. It’s the perfect exemplification of the feeling I get in mid September, when warm summer days start becoming few and far between, nature begins to change colour around me, and the cooler breezes start to set in. This colour combination is both warm and nurturing and is a much more colourful and exciting alternative to the usual navy, black or brown Fall colours.

I’m currently switching between my Aubergine Midi Loren Tote and my Micro Mini Crossbody bag. The Midi Loren is the perfect size for toting around to meetings while the new Micro Mini is the ideal option when I need a hands-free bag.
