Many of you have become smitten with the Queen’s Launer London handbag she wore to Westminster Abbey, according to sales of the luxury heritage bag that have risen by 60 per cent since its debut appearance almost two weeks ago.
The cream leather bag is hand-made by the luxurious brand and royal warrant holder, complete with calfskin leather, a boxy shape and bespoke design that was actually made for the Queen two years ago.
After its first public appearance, the undersized handbag has generated a flurry of excitement from woman of all ages – good news for Launer as its day-to-day clientele normally consists of the 50-plus establishment – with 20 per cent of the sales increase caused by stylish women in the 35-50 age bracket, reports the Telegraph.
The cost of a pedigree Launer handbag could set you back anything from £375 to £800, but if you want to follow in the fashionable foot-steps of our Queen, the bags are available to purchase at Fortnum & Mason, Selfridges, John Lewis and Launer.com.
