Margaret Thatcher's Handbags
Margaret Thatcher was famous for her beautiful handbags. Her black Asprey bag was at her side during some of the most important summits with President Ronald Reagan during the 1980s.
Historically, Asprey has been known for jewellery collections featuring naturalistic forms. The Woodland Collection is a contemporary reflection of this, being (as the name suggests) inspired by the English woodland. The oak tree in particular is a recurring motif, both in the form of oak leaves and the use of textures redolent of oak bark.
The collection is produced using a range of highly skilled techniques: micro-pavé features prominently, as does enamelling. The latter is exceptionally challenging to execute on curved surfaces.
The Woodland Charms are designed to be worn flexibly, either in isolation or combined with other charms. They can be attached and detached from our Charm Bracelets.
