Colour palettes

Design inspirationAnne Kelsall

On recent travels I've been inspired by colours that seem so integral in everyday life. I love the contrasting colours and boldness of their use.

These wonderful colours have worked their way into the dbs range, with bright oranges, electric blues, and deep purples to name a few. I've always loved colour and pattern and it can’t help but filter through to the collection. Every bag in the original dbs range also feature bold printed cotton linings to make them beautiful on the inside as well.

I hope this injection of colour brightens up your day and makes you feel cheerful!

Photoshoot on the underpass

Inspired by the brightly coloured graffiti on a underpass I decided to use it as the backdrop for a new collection of bags that have been made in collaboration with other leather workers.

Some may consider graffiti a form of vandalism but to me each individual artwork is a rainbow of colour and brighten up what would have been a very dull walkway.

I'm very excited about the new range and I think it works well alongside the original dbs bags. Listening to customers requests for zips there are plenty in this new collection. We also have some new gorgeous leather backpacks.

It's been great to diversify the range of our collection and I hope to extend it in the future. Its certainly got the creative juices flowing!
