There’s a new Kensington in my collection and she’s an absolute beauty. My friends very kindly bought me the new ‘Soft XXL Kensington Bag’ for my 30th birthday and I’m absolutely thrilled with it. I had my eye on it as soon as it landed and tried to get a look in store a few times to put the size into context however they never had it in stock. It’s even more beautiful in the flesh and I can’t believe how soft it is. It’s like a pillow, a sumptuous one with a silk slip, that’s all I can really compare it to.
I initially thought this would be the perfect travel companion when we can start to explore the world again however now that I’ve got it, I can see the practicalities of using it day to day. First of all the size is incredible. I could literally fit everything I could ever need to carry inside. It’s really spacious with two main compartments as well as a pocket at the back which I like to use for keys & things I need quick and easy access to. Secondly, the buttery soft leather is a dream. I don’t know how they keep it so smooth and supple especially with the quilted design. The craftsmanship is exquisite and it looks like a high end designer piece. The matte finish is also really classy and adds to the luxury. It’s different from all my other Kensington’s and I think I now have all designs from mini to maxi, velvet to patent and everything in between.
I’ve already got so many ideas for how to style it up. It’ll be ideal for shoot days when I have my camera, extra lenses and other accessories to lug around. It would also be great for spa days which I can’t wait to enjoy again. I’d also say it would make a great baby bag if you’re a mum that doesn’t want to compromise on aesthetics. You can probably get a separator or organiser to slot in to each compartment which will protect the bag from any spills as well as making it easy to find things.
Overall it’s a great all rounder and the perfect addition to my much loved Kensington collection.
