Allow me to introduce you to one of my latest bags additions, the Iphis Marlborough tote bag by Liberty. I came to know about it in Spring 2015, when Liberty London launched new bag styles from the Iphis line. The Iphis collection with its roots firmly embedded in classic English design, has its signature coated canvas base fabric screen printed with the Iphis monogram like print by-hand in Italy.
Iphis is a modern reworking of the much-loved classic Liberty print ‘Ianthe’ which is a French Art-Nouveau wallpaper design dating back to c 1902. The print is named after Iphis who according to ancient Greek mythology was Ianthe's lover.
It is worth mentioning that all the bags in the Iphis collection are named after the renowned streets that surround the Liberty store. My Iphis Marlborough tote bag was a perfect addition to my wardrobe because a) I fell in love with the creative and artistic use of colors and patterns, b) the leather felt strong and enduring for my everyday use, and c) it's sooo light to carry!
