Australia’s doyenne of down-to-earth yet out-of-this-world luxury, Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley (located in the stunningly rugged surrounds of the NSW Blue Mountains) has teamed up with bag-makers-of-the-moment State of Escape to launch a capsule collection of their signature fashion-meets-function neoprene bags. Seen on the shoulder of any respectable Bondi beauty, State of Escape has created three bespoke bags designed to evoke the unique colour palette that defines the outback beauty of Wolgan Valley. The limited edition bags are available at the resort’s boutiques and online at www.stateofescape.com.
Meanwhile, COMO Shambhala is celebrating 20 years of bringing its holistic wellness treatments, ethos and hospitality to legions of dedicated fans by collaborating with the similarly iconic luxury goods brand Mulberry to create an earthily lovely canvas tote. A sure-fire way to look suitably chic whilst lugging your yoga gear around town, the limited-edition bag comes in light tan or navy, finished with leather straps and a stitched COMO Shambhala logo. The bags are available exclusively at COMO Shambhala retail outlets worldwide, and COMO Hotels and Resorts Boutiques.
