    Press Release



    Mary & Marie handbags effortlessly marry style and practicality for an action-packed summer


    With the sunshine season now firmly on the horizon, Mary & Marie handbags are certain to see you through summer in the most stylish way possible.


    This Hong Kong-based, Australian-designed accessories brand has a range of fresh new handbag designs available for 2016, ensuring that you’re armed to tackle whatever summer has to throw at you – whether it’s lazing on a beach, rocking out at a music festival or jet-setting around the globe. Made using the finest fabrics sourced from around the world, these unique designs have all been carefully created to feature a series of practical inner pockets and compartments that effortlessly marry unparalleled functionality with unstinting fashion.


    Beach babes will love the easy, breezy Avalon and Venice Beach Totes, made from recycled plastic for an extra eco-friendly factor. These lightweight and durable bags are big enough to fit all your beachside essentials – with eye-catching yet versatile designs that will take you from daytime lounging to evening cocktails with ease. See-through inner mesh pockets provide a convenient way to keep all your basics organised and easily accessible, while a waterproof transparent plastic compartment is the ideal place to store a Kindle or iPad uploaded with the latest simmering reads and sizzling shows to keep you entertained while sunbathing. A neoprene bottle holder also ensures that your water is kept cool, ready for all your hot day hydration needs.


    Another especially innovative Mary & Marie feature is the bag’s removable waterproof interior compartment, which simply zips out allowing for easy cleaning and washing, and transferring all your everyday items from bag to bag in a snap… just the sort of savvy practicality ideal for action-packed summers.


    Also crafted with this unique feature is The Sting Handbag, made using top-quality lichee grain leather with a subtle suede trim. This smart, sleek and sophisticated number is the perfect companion to summer travels, boasting the same series of handy inner mesh pockets, waterproof bottle holder and large transparent plastic compartment to keep all your flight essentials in order. An inner clip keeps track of your keys, meaning no more panicked rummaging around the bottom of your bag, while an elasticised hook ensures that valuables – like a passport holder or money wallet – are always exactly where you need them. With a classic design that compliments any outfit, The Sting will take you from boarding your plane to exploring your new destination in style.


    Rock chicks will love the Festival Heaven Shoulder/Backpack Bag, made from buttery soft black lichee grain leather with a tactile distressed finish. This nifty convertible number with a removable backpack strap is your new best friend for a summer spent hitting the festival circuit, transforming from a slouchy shoulder bag to a convenient and compact backpack with the minimum of effort. Featuring Mary & Marie’s signature inner internal mesh and transparent pockets to keep your items organised, alongside easy-access front pockets for stashing those all-important rock star sunnies, this bag stores everything you need insecure but stylish fashion – leaving you to concentrate on dancing the night away.


    Summer 2016’s final new addition is the There’s Something About Mary Shoulder/Backpack Bag, another ingenious two-in-one wardrobe addition that nails this season’s backpack trend while also converting to a smart shoulder bag should the situation require. Crafted from high-quality Italian lichee grain leather in a versatile tan finish, this bag is an organisational dream – boasting a large outer pocket ideal for storing items in easy reach, a secure zippable back pocket, a large see-through inner plastic laptop or document compartment perfect, and practical inner mesh pockets for smaller items. Day or night, in the office or the gym, shopping up a storm or relaxing at a restaurant… there’s no situation this bag doesn’t look great in.

    Top Five Buys To Organise Your Life

    Some days you’re unstoppable; everything falls into place, you’re right on schedule and you power through your ‘to do’ list, one bold red tick at a time. And then there are those other days. Days where you lose your keys, miss that important client meeting and accidentally delete your annual report. Sound familiar? Here are five fool-proof buys to whip your organisational skills into shape, no matter what life throws at you.


    Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll already know that clean queen Marie Kondo has become the last word in organisation with the publication of her book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up”. The Konmarie method promises to de-clutter, delineate and de-stress the most ardent hoarder’s home and office with a series of tips that are so simple; you’ll wonder why you never thought of them before. With an app soon to be launched, keeping clean and serene on the go has never been easier.


    Speaking of which, although smartphones are undeniably useful, if you’re the type of person who can’t remember anything unless it’s written down, good old-fashioned paper won’t run out of battery at a crucial moment leaving you high and dry. Bullet Journal is the next generation of diary management, upping your productivity in a way that’s beautifully simple and entirely customisable to your needs. Employing a reassuringly clean and low-tech system of dots, crosses and arrows, this straightforward method aims to make keeping on top of your life admin an absolute cinch.


    Make sure you’re motivated to keep up your journaling with a beautiful new notebook. Made from colourful cross-grain leather embossed with a range of witty slogans (we love “Blah Blah Blah” to raise a wry smile when taking minutes at tedious meetings, or “Novel Ideas” for brainstorming new business concepts), these gilt-edged Smythson notebooks add a touch of class to the most mundane task and will encourage you to keep up to date.


    Find yourself cramming an overstuffed wallet into a tiny shoulder bag? Rifling around the bottom of your backpack for your house keys? Drying out your paperwork after yet another water-bottle leak? Your bag should always help, rather than hinder your organisational efforts, which is why Mary and Marie’s handbags, backpacks and totes all feature a nifty range of organisational extras that will keep your day running smoothly.


    If you tend to multitask your way through the day, then the There’s Something About Mary convertible bag is for you. This classic leather backpack, with its reassuringly chunky silver hardware, transforms effortlessly to a stylish shoulder bag in just seconds, effectively giving you two bags for the price of one. The large internal transparent plastic pocket is ideal for keeping your laptop, gym kit or even baby changing supplies separate from the rest of your bag, while handy see-through mesh pockets give you rummage-free access to your phone and notebook. Being hands-free on the fly has never looked more stylish.  


    The Sting is where functionality meets style to create a beautifully practical bag, crafted from black matte lichee grain leather and super-tactile suede that’s designed to age beautifully while remaining durable for years to come. With the same large plastic compartment and mesh pockets as its cousin Mary, The Sting’s four external pockets offer plenty of space for everything from travel cards to lip balms, while a smart elasticised wallet strap means no more hunting for your cash. A key clip saves hassle when it’s home time, and a handy neoprene bottle holder keeps drinks cool, baby bottles warm, and even doubles as a handy spot for a wet umbrella on a rainy day! Best of all, you can unzip the entire interior to hand wash – no more lipstick smears or leaky pens staining your favourite bag. Switching between bags also becomes an absolute cinch – essential for busy women with no time to waste.

    Mary & Marie – handmade leather nappy bag perfection

    Mary and Marie nappy bags

    I’m so glad I am part of this generation of mothers who have never even seen a nappy bag adorned with balloons or bunnies, I hear this was the case in the past, I find it hard to comprehend though. Take a look at this beauty.


    Mary & Marie‘s nappy bag collection is so far from what nappy bags used to be they almost need to call them something different. Handmade with high-grade luxury nappa leather (of course) and complete with detachable long strap (so you can hang it on your pram) these beautiful bags have all the features that mums need. Waterproof bottle holder, key hook and mesh sections that make it super simple to search through.

    I’m in love with the La Dolce Vita Bag (below) partly because I have a black and white fetish but also because the two large outside pockets mean you can keep all your usual handbag contents separate to the bub stuff. All Mary & Marie nappy bags come with a removable organiser (above) and prices start at $99. Shipping is free for most orders in Australia and they will get it in the post within two days. Now I’m going to make a confession. I have never actually owned a nappy bag – eek. But I’m about to go and change that right now.
