Perfect for adding a little character into your daywear, these bags are ‘small in size but big in style.’ They are just so cute! I’m looking forward to purchasing one on my next trip to Sweden, which hopefully will be sometime this winter. Team Coup recently spoke to the lovely Paulina Liffner; mastermind behind these beautiful creations.
Q: Did you have any experience of working in the fashion industry before launching Little Liffners?
Yes. My magazine jobs basically consisted of styling and during my years in PR I have worked closely with many fashion labels which gives quite a lot of insight, so its all different sides to the same coin really.
Q: What was it that made you specialise in designing bags?
I always thought of accessories as the icing on the fashion cake. Also many of my friends and I seemed to have trouble finding beautiful bags in a clean style that didn’t come with a price tag of a two week vacation.
Q: Which sources do you draw inspiration from?
Art exhibitions, street style photos, architecture and cool interiors. Traveling is also a major source of inspiration. I’m a major people watcher, a starer even, haha. I love to make up imaginary life stories for the people I stare at.
Q: What are your favourite fabrics to work with and why?
Leather of course, the possibilities are endless and it’s a natural material that ages well. But I look much forward to working in other exciting materials to like rubber, woven wools and canvas.
Q: If you had to choose 3 words that best described Little Liffner bags, what would they be?
Clean, all round and chic
Q: What has been the highlight of your career in fashion so far?
Taking the leap and starting Little Liffner for sure. But also being a fashion assistant at ELLE Sweden at my first photo shoots was amazing.
Q: What is next for the Little Liffners?
To do the best bags I possibly can and develop the concept of add-ons further with additional shoulder straps, handles, name tags etc.
