Introducing Browns’ ‘Melissa’ handbag (and some other nan bags I’m eyeballing)

During my recent two-day residency at Browns, alongside the Club Monaco knits and Celine sunglasses, I couldn’t help cuddling a particular little lady-bag in pebbled grey leather. It turned out this classic, structured number is a new member of the Browns family – the very first own-label handbag. Called the ‘Melissa’, it’s named after Melissa Lloyd Maish, a designer who created the bag alongside Browns’ CEO, Simon Burstein. It retails for £750, also comes in terracotta and both colours are trimmed with rose gold hardware.

Buy the Melissa bag at Browns.

I’m also liking these structured nan bags:
