I’m delighted to introduce three new additions to the TNMA Edit. Two beautiful leather tote bags and a superb summer shirt. The classic leather tote bag is designed in partnership with Hackney-based designer Mimi Berry. Previously, we collaborated on a sell-out crossbody/ shoulder bag, so this year we’ve been working behind-the-scenes on a timeless leather tote. Simple and practical, it’s the kind of stylish, everyday bag that goes with everything. The grainy leather totes are made in England, with environmentally-friendly vegetable tanning processes, and leftover Italian leather to ensure that they are zero waste. We chose two versatile colours that will play beautifully with prints, patterns and neutrals; brick (shown above) which is a rich reddy tan, and navy (shown below) which is a pure, classic dark blue.



The TNMA Tote


I’ve been using mine, a lot. The perfect size, it’s big enough to hold a jumper, book, umbrella and a water bottle, but not so large that you’ll need a trip to the chiropractor. The stitched bridle handles fit neatly over the shoulder, staying put without slipping, and we’ve added an interior pocket for small items and valuables (like yer bus pass). The TNMA tote also features two metal D-rings in the top corners, suitable for attaching a long strap or key chain. And the TNMA stamp! (see above).

Dimensions: W: 43cm / H: 37cm / D: 15cm

Handle height: 27cm

RRP: £160



Next up is the latest design from my on-going collaboration with Somerset-based designer Sarah O’Keefe. The effortlessly chic, pull-on-and-go Stitch Shirt; a collarless style in indigo blue with an oversized shape, made from 100% Indian cotton (£95). The abstract pattern looks like irregular hand-stitching (hence the name), and the shirt is screen-printed and made in Delhi. The hem is longer at the back than at the front which makes it perfect for tucking-in, or wearing open over swimwear. Lightweight, wafty and easy-to-wear, this is a great shirt for summer.

We recommend you measure yourself before selecting your size and refer to the full size guide on Sarah’s site HERE.  (I’m wearing a size 2/medium, for the slouchier fit).



All three items can be purchased by clicking through to the respective website and placing an order (simply click on the title of the item within this post).  And, you can shop the full  TNMA Edit HERE.
