The de­signer on the first bag she ever made, board games, and sneak peeks for the next sea­son. By Cai Mei Khoo.

Why is the Be­spoke col­lec­tion so im­por­tant to you? I wanted to cre­ate pieces for our cus­tomers to trea­sure for a life­time, an an­tithe­sis of throw­away trends. So we cre­ated a new col­lec­tion that can be em­bossed with hand­writ­ten mes­sages, draw­ings, and mono­grams, pieces that are about hav­ing your name on them rather than mine. Own any be­spoke pieces your­self? I have a few with mes­sages from my hus­band and kids. My iPad case has a hand­writ­ten


mes­sage from my hus­band, say­ing, “There are three of us in this mar­riage; You, me, and that bloody iPad.” And your daily bag? An Al­bion and a Feath­er­weight Ebury (from our new Cruise col­lec­tion), in­side of which I have a Ge­or­giana clutch in black, for af­ter-work events. In my bag, you will find my iPad, iPhone, keys, Le­ica cam­era, pen­cils for sketch­ing, and swatches of leather. Your sources of in­spi­ra­tion? A thou­sand things and peo­ple in­spire me: my mother’s style, ar­chi­tec­ture, travel, and choco­late. Who is your de­sign muse? I de­sign with my­self in mind. Women play many dif­fer­ent roles in to­day’s world; We work, travel, have fam­i­lies, and still like to en­joy our­selves. The high­light of your ca­reer? When I re­ceived my MBE from the Queen. The se­cret to your suc­cess? Know­ing that the jour­ney is as im­por­tant as the desti­na­tion and be­ing pas­sion­ate about what I do.
