If, like us, you frequent the new-in section of Net-a-Porter, you might have noticed the arrival of a shiny new handbag name in the mix, Scandinavian brand Little Liffner.
It can be difficult to find quality, luxurious handbags that don’t cost more than the £1000 mark, but Little Liffner's founder, former fashion consultant Paulina Liffner von Sydow, was intent on filling this gap with expensive-looking handbags that all fall under £500.
Lifter von Sydow set up business in 2012, but Net-a-Porter has just selected Little Liffner as a new buy, creating even more hype around the Scandi favourite. The success of an emerging brand is now, of course, often dictated by its visibility in the street style scene, and the “Liffners” have already been carried by the likes of Celine Aargaard, Natalie Joos and Carolina Engman.

As you'd expect from anything Stockholm-based, the designs are clean, minimal and non-shouty, falling in line with the prevalent anti–It bag movement. Key styles include the ring tote, an oversize functional work bag with a croc-effect panel and a large silver ring as a handle, and the mini box shoulder bag, which comes in a rich burgundy suede, a mossy green suede and black lizard-effect leather.
