I've just discovered accessories label Barbara Rihl.  The Paris-based Austrian designer has designed this beautiful red Explicite Trend handbag made from 100% cowhide leather with square quilted detailing, chunky silver zips, press stud fastening and long strap so you can wear it how you wish.

Barbara Rihl studied at the Universitat der Kunste in Vienna under Karl Lagerfeld for two years and then Jil Sander before she started working at Kenzo.  The designer then left to set up her own handbag label in 2000 and I don't know how I hadn't come across her collections before - some are simple designs like the above and some are like a European version of Lulu Guinness with fun slogans, girly embellishment and printed illustrations.  Barbara, I can tell you and I are going to become firm friends...
