We have created a limited range of leather handbags available exclusively online at Wolf and Badger and in their Notting Hill store. The range includes two small messenger style bags which are large enough for your phone, make-up essentials and a small wallet; bags that are both beautiful and useful. The shape of the bag is formed through Swarovski crystal seams that are hand sewn to abut the leather at 90 degree angles. Because the seams are actually formed using the crystals, the Swarovskis become structurally integral to the bags as well as a stunning detail. It takes Paul a full day to do the hand sewing of the crystals alone in each one of these bags - they are true luxury artisanal pieces.
The Norfolk bag (pictured in patent cherry) is simply finished with metal fastenings, while the Cornwall bag (pictured in navy) has an additional decorative plate on the front flap. This additional plate has patterning formed through further hand sewn Swarovskis that appear as luxurious studs due to being partially inset into the leather.

The Season Hats: Refined simplicity.
The Season Hats offers hats, headbands and headpieces that are feminine without feeling ‘girly’.
The Season Hats combines classic materials with new technologies to create modern pieces that are appropriate for social events, weddings and casual wear. The Season Hats fulfils a market need for exclusive headwear that can be worn easily and to multiple events, with the wearer always feeling appropriate.
Paul Stafford (MA Cantab, MA Womenswear RCA) :
“I wanted to create a collection of headwear that takes the heritage of traditional millinery in terms of material, technique and proportion but makes it fresh and contemporary by combining modern technologies and a minimal, almost architectural, aesthetic.”
The Spring/Summer 15 preview collection uses laser cut leather with traditional Panama Straw to update conventional styles and shapes. A nod to, and update of, a customary millinery technique is made using a laser etched peacock feather motif. Made in limited numbers and hand finished by Paul to maintain quality, you can have a timeless piece that is not mass produced...headwear that feels modern, finessed and appropriate.
