Sometimes you find out about great fashion in the strangest of places. At work the other day, someone had left a newspaper section on a table in the lunchroom and I picked it up and was flipping through it. To my delight, there were a couple articles on fashion and one featured a write-up about the great handbags from Horse + Nail. The reasoning for the inclusion of this brand in my local newspaper is that the designer is somehow connected to my local football team, the Calgary Stampeders (the pretty red bag is named after them and has a charm of their logo).
I tucked the name away in the head and today remembered to check out the website. What lovely pieces! Not to mention that the photographs incorporate my other great love besides fashion: horses (oh course, this doesn't include my family or bf)! I love these photos and the bags are just gorgeous. I love how horse tack has been incorporated into the designs (the metal pieces that make up the handles are actually horse bits). Definately a great up and coming handbag designer.
