First details of the New Sherene Melinda Handbag Collection

First details of the New Sherene Melinda Handbag Collection

As trees gain their leaves, the sun sets later and the streets of London are filled with the sights of quickly melting ice cream, we know that summer has truly arrived. In the fashion world, the change in seasons doesn’t just welcome a change in what people do but also what they wear. It’s a ticking clock for designers to have their new collections ready.

Creative Director, Sherene, has been hard at work over the past six months sketching, measuring, sculpting and preparing for the release of the latest collection here at SHERENE MELINDA. With final stitches being sewn we thought it was time to let you, our faithful customers and fans, know of its upcoming arrival and give you a little teaser on what to expect.

We are happy to announce the offering of our first-ever unisex bag, a cosmopolitan rucksack with a clean silhouette that will compliment the body shape of both genders. This also includes an optional laptop case.

Next in the line-up is a conventional satchel with a leather top handle as well as a detachable silver chain and leather strap that allows this compact handbag to be worn over the shoulder or held in the hand.

The third addition is a unique square-shaped handbag using unstructured and supple leather, providing ample room to store even larger belongings such as a camera or tablet. The ‘box bag’ is also offered with a detachable silver chain and leather strap, making it an ideal accessory for day-to-day wear or for travel.

The New Collection is made with signature authentic springbok hair-on-hide and offered in a range of sixteen seasonal colours; including new shades of green and grey along with classic red, orange, yellow, olive, lime, taupe, pink, baby blue, purple, royal blue, burgundy and neutrals. All handbags are fully leather lined with the softest natural ecofriendly leather.

By now you might be wondering where and when you can get your hands on one or more of these handbags. Right now, we’re making the finishing touches to ensure that every handbag is perfect.

If you are interested in reserving one of the handbags, please get in touch with us via the contact page or emailing and we will be happy to keep your chosen bag aside and send it to you when it arrives.

Sherene Melinda are delighted to announce the launch of the 2020 Collection and are now open to taking orders for the new seasons handbags.

Structured styling enhanced with either ethical hair-on-hide or studded embellishments offers a range of exquisite handbags with a desirable edge. The entire collection of handbags is fully lined with an opulent and natural eco-friendly leather lining.

Our handbags are made using leather both inside and out. We use nappa leather on the outside and the handbags are lined with an ecofriendly (using no harmful chemicals or dyes) natural pigskin leather in the inside. This helps to make our bags incredibly soft and luxurious but also durable and longlasting.

For our signature feature that we have become known for we use genuine Springbok hair-on-hide leather. The ethical source of the materials is very important to us. Springbok are classified as non-cites (which means there is no threat to the survival of the species) and the animals live freely in abundance in South Africa. The sustainability of the species is carefully managed and the population is culled to keep the ecosystem in balance. The local food industry benefits from this and the by-products are also utilised in decorative ways in interiors, furniture and fashion.

All our leathers are a by-product of the food-industry.

We use only high quality YKK zips and silver-coloured metal chains, studs and handbag hardware.

All our handbags are offered with a white cotton dustbag to keep them clean.
