Unique Designs, Places of Mine...

Cabuxa medium sized portfolio bag gardenUnintentionally, I can see my life becoming more heavily inspired by nature than ever before.  It creeps its way in through garden walks, glasshouses filled with tropical plants, sugar crafted flowers on top of cakes and in this instance, a portfolio bag by Cabuxa titled 'The Garden of the Dreams'.  As you may have cottoned on by now, I'm more than happy to dive into an abundance of green leaves and flowers.  So, with this in mind, I set off to one of my favourite glasshouses in the South to introduce this busy portfolio bag to the world of humidifiers and colourful orchids...

Spring style denim dress and bootsBased in the north of Spain (Galicia), Cabuxa pride themselves on combining artisan leatherwork with unique design. Unique is certainly the word in the case of this portfolio bag; soft flowers meet with fierce alternatives and what at first appears as a gentle garden scene, soon reveals itself to be something much more sinister!  Speaking as someone who is determined to find unique and beautiful accessories to pair with the mass of 'basics' sitting in my wardrobe (think v-neck t-shirts and block colour maxi skirts), this functional bag has a special place in my heart.

Cabuxa garden print clutch review
RHS Wisley glasshouse plant photographyAs I wandered through the glasshouse, I couldn't help but wonder whether it was a similar environment that inspired the artist who designed this clutch; Cabuxa's creative world is made up of their very own Gallery of Artists, whose collective designs feature on the brand's leather products.  It would seem my new friend was designed by 'Pekolejo', as shown by the printed name added to one of the corners!

Style and lifestyle blogger englandI have a feeling this portfolio clutch by Cabuxa is settling in nicely to its new surroundings... or at least I hope so, as I've no doubt I'll be introducing it to many more of my favourite nature-infused haunts over upcoming months!    

With love,

  3. Haha, it's funny, as I was looking at the clutch and the photos, I too was wondering whether it was a similar environment that inspired the artist who designed the clutch. The details on the clutch is amazing and I could see some of the images from the clutch in the glasshouse. It is a gorgeous clutch by the way. x

  15. I always like the elements of nature you include in my bag as I am the biggest nature junkie myself! This bag is so cute- the tropical design is so unique and so on trend for the upcoming European Summer. I really like how it adds a pop of colour to your gap dress too- you look gorgeous girly!

  16. That print is really beautiful and special. I've been feeling more and more inspired by nature lately, not just through florals but in landscapes and formations. Nature is really complex and wonderful and really serves as perfect inspiration for anything.

  17. What a lovely bag that is, Gabrielle. Amongst greenery and sunshine, it fits right in. I'm loving the photos, too! I feel as if I don't take in nature as much as I should, often taking for granted the amount of forests I have surrounding me. Perhaps I shall start paying attention to them more often.

  21. I think it's such a great idea to brighten up basic items with bright and more fun accessories and it also helps you to get more looks from less items. This bag is so pretty for summer too :) x

  22. What a unique piece! Nature has a lot to offer, even taking a long walk in the forest not only clears your mind but also can give you so many inspirations! I am sure like you said inspiration behind this print is definitely an environment like you're in! x

I think it's a great and unique idea to feature an artist's work, as the print making of such an interesting piece. I also love your outfit and how you layered the tee under your slip dress!
