Boyarde recently exhibited a selection of her hand painted bags at the Hyatt Regency Hotel for both London Fashion Week, and Frieze London.  Especially for the occasion Boyarde painted a selection of unique and personalised designs, on the beloved bags of some of UK’s top fashion and lifestyle bloggers.

Amongst these exquisite bags was Kelly Eastwood’s Smythson Tote. Boyarde was delighted to personalise a Smythson bag, Smythson being one of the UK’S top luxury fashion brands. When choosing a design, Kelly of the London chatter, was keen to combine her childhood memories of growing up in kenya with her love of the Lion King, hence the perfect pairing of the Swahili, lion King inspired quote: “Hakuna Matata Sweet Cheeks “with this fabulous Catherine Hepburn inspired Diva.

Smythson, described their bag as receiving a “Boyarde make-over”, Smythson personalisation “taking on a whole new level of artistry!” Check out the link below to see the great piece Smythson wrote about Kelly’s fab bag!

Here are some photos of the bag in the making, as well as some snaps of it on display at The Hyatt! We are so pleased that Kelly loves her epic Diva. We hope you like it to!
