Luxury in Clerkenwell: Made in Global Bags

SEEN was attending Clerkenwell London to hear all about the forthcoming Clerkenwell Design Week in May, when I spotted a fabulous backpack adorning a fellow attendee and found myself sitting next to the same lady at the briefing. Happily, the fabulous backpack was part of a collection currently enjoying a pop-up outing until the end of March at Clerkenwell London, which if you haven’t visited it yet is a must-see concept store of fashion, art, food and drink, wine, wellness and design, not far from Farringdon Station.
