Step Into 2014 In Style! Stylish Bags That Will Work All Year Long

Step into 2014 in style! Stylish bags that will work all year long

Here at Your Coffee Break we’ve long believed the way that you choose to style yourself is an encompassing form of expression, from your choice of clothing right through to your accessories. We’re always on the hunt for new ways to rejuvenate our wardrobes and handbag label Be.Loved Handbags, is all about maintaining that all important individual style.


We met with Saffy Allen, the founder of Be.Loved, who designs her collection with independent women like herself in mind: “Someone who places as much value on high quality as well as beautiful style, and who keeps an eye on trends but is not a slave to them.” The designer told YCB.

After finishing a business degree and finding herself becoming disillusioned about buying bags that just couldn’t stand up to her demanding life, Saffy decided to take matters into her own hands and founded Be.Loved – a unique collection of real leather handbags and satchels with an authentic twist. “This presented me with somewhere to flex my newly learnt skills from my degree and with some gorgeous arm candy that is both durable and stylish at the same time (it doesn’t have to be one or the other!)” Saffy explained.

A proudly British brand, each Be.Loved bag is handcrafted in the UK by dedicated craftsmen in the most sumptuous, colour saturated leathers. Understanding that our handbags withstand our hectic lifestyles, they also offer a 2-year craftsmanship guarantee on every handbag, satchel and clutch, to ensure the durability of every product and the satisfaction of each customer.


Whether you prefer a Stella McCartney-esque tailored look, or a quirky, bohemian style, the right accessories can really make an outfit and the versatile range of luxurious designs complement any look, from office chic to a night on the town. The chic design of the Urbane Small Satchel is perfect for Alexa Chung inspired weekend wear, paired with a cute black dress and oversized knit, whilst the All Day Satchels are a great choice for the office, teamed with a crisp blouse, slim trousers and a pair of killer pumps.

We’re obsessing over Be.Loved’s Equis 3 Way Clutch Bag – available in Deep Purple, Pitch Black, or our personal favourite, Oxblood Red. The tailored design can be styled in 3 unique ways, such as a colourful clutch to add elegance to your favourite cocktail dress, over the shoulder for a fusion of practicality and poise, or on the wrist for a classic, feminine look.

As the New Year approaches, upgrade your wardrobe and step into 2014 in style! For more info about Be:Loved or to grab your favourite bag today, visit :
