Owing the rapid growth of online sales as well as the success of our UK flagship store in Solihull’s Touchwood Shopping Centre, we’re moving… again.
Barely a year after shifting the O bag offices to a new location in Dickens Heath two doors down from the original HQ, the overflow storeroom that was the former office spilled over into the showroom when the Spring Collection arrived. What used to be a fully stocked little store room is now awash with boxes without a suitable home elsewhere.
As a result we will be moving to Monkspath Business Park in the coming weeks to a brand new facility where offices and storeroom will be united once more under the same roof. The warehouse is huge and the offices modern and spacious; so will happily accommodate future growth but at this rate we’re not quite sure for how long…
Inspired by a range of patterns and textures, the Majolica range of O bag accessories recall Mediterranean holidays spent along the towns of the Amalfi coast, where little shops sell earthenware goods hand painted with bright and colourful patterns.
The natural colours of the hessian trims work well in the season of renewal and regrowth, and are thematically complimented by the botanicals range of O clock watch dials. The pastel suede accessories introduce a more luxurious texture to the collection, worked as delicately and beautifully as the finest lace while the brand new Amaranth, Powder Blue, and Aqua colours introduce a striking alternative to the subtle and understated suede pieces.
Claudia Mcintosh (Store Manager) and her team welcomed guests to the launch of the new O bag store, which opened at Touchwood last month, the first concept store in the UK. The invited guests – a mix of clients and associates, including the Mayor of Solihull who cut the red ribbon and made a speech, were treated to champagne and canapés, while they enjoyed the new store and the experience of putting together their own bag and watch to suit their personal style and taste.
When we asked Claudia what she enjoys most about her role, she said “I love helping customers personalise our range of O bag products to create a style and unique look which is individual to them”, she says “The products include a vast range of interchangeable watches including the new O clock greats with new straps and larger dials. O bags with many different styles to suit, including the classic and mini, the smaller bags O basket and O pocket, and the recently launched O chic, again all with many accessories which are easily added to or changed. For SS16 there is a fantastic new colour-coordinating collection, all available within our Touchwood store from the end of February”.
