Queen’s Favourite Handbag Designer Launches Jubilee Edition

The favourite handbag designer of the Queen is celebrating the Jubilee by launching a new collection based on Her Majesty’s classic accessory.

Launer is releasing a retro-style handbag reminiscent of the style they launched in 1972, which Queen Elizabeth II herself has long been a fan of.

Gerald Bodmer, chief executive of the handbag brand, was reported by Hello! magazine as saying: “The Queen is a style icon and always looks remarkable, we are therefore proud and delighted that she has used Laune bags so prominently for more than 50 years.”

Therefore, there is no better way to celebrate the royal’s 70 years on the throne than with a Jubilee Collection, which while being based on the Queen’s favourite structured design, has also been updated with a contemporary finish.

For instance, the suede interior has been replaced with a retro-feel fabric, and each bag features a leather plaque with ‘Platinum Edition Jubilee’ in embossed gold foil.

There are five colours of the limited-edition accessory, including Monarch Purple, Ebony Black, Tangerine, Cloud Blue and Fawn Brown, and are available for £2,500.

Bodmer told People: “It’s a beautifully finished product – we stick to what we are good at, which is making structured bags.”

Over the last 50 years, the Queen has been seen with six different styles of Launer bags, with her most recent choice being the Turandot, which is smaller and lighter to carry.

Due to its popularity among the royal family, Launer has been given the Royal Warrant, which is the “ultimate seal of approval and prestige”.
