Nemo the Vintage Lovers Choice x

Nica has a love for ALL things vintage. From clothes to jewellery, artwork to houseware! It is Nica's passion for vintage that sees elements and twists in her collections from times gone by.

The ‘Nemo’ shoulder bag is recognisable by two big buttons that are inspired by a 1950’s dress that Nica found on her travels of vintage fairs and shops. 

‘Nemo’ is a soft, fun loving everyday shoulder bag that can hold all of life’s necessities.

The Lucy Tote x

To escape the hustle and bustle of London, Nica’s favourite place to unwind is a secret garden. The serene and tranquil garden flourishes with colourful bursts and lush green foliage. Under an ivy covered archway Nica sits on her bench and sketches. 

First comes a twisted woven strap handle, like the ivy vine she sits under. Secondly, panels burst open to reveal canvas print like a flower bud opening and finally a perfect rose charm is added to complete the ‘Lucy’ shoulder bag.

 Whenever worn, the ‘Lucy’ bag brings back wonderful memories of the secret garden.

The Story of Rowan

Nica's trip to Longleat Butterfly garden had her fluttering with delight at the beautiful colours, symmetrical shapes and soft, delicate touch of the butterflies.

 The ‘Rowan’ bag has the same elements in its soft hobo shape. Fine detailing of embroidered butterfly stitching adds whimsical elegance.

 The ‘Rowan’ design inspired Nica to spread her wings and get carried away with the inside print design.

Alicia Satchel Inspiration

Nica’s Signature collection is a range of cherished Nica shapes, with each style coming from delightful inspirations from Nica’s life.

The ‘Alicia’ satchel was inspired by Nica’s visit to Castle grounds where a statue of Alice in Wonderland ‘Through the Looking Glass’ can be seen. Multiple worlds and a whimsical aura allowed for the creation of, and need for, multiple pockets, both open and zipped.

A twist lock mimics Alice’s intriguing behavior to open and close doors by twisting keys in locks to find hidden treasures. Cut out flower detailing and snowflake shapes depict the wonderland adventure that Alice finds herself on.

 What style bag would Alice need on such an adventure? A satchel of course! And that is how the inspiration of an Alice in Wonderland statue created Nica’s ‘Alicia’ satchel.
