Shop and meet London's emerging designers on Bond Street

Two previous Deloitte Institute Founders, Esin Akan and Astrid & Miyu, are amongst four designers providing the opportunity, for a very limited period, to shop London's affordable luxury emerging designers in two pop-up boutiques by Bond Street. The brands share the same ethos of responsible sourcing cementing their credentials as the ethical, sophisticated and luxurious choice for the modern woman. The designers focus on high quality products that are also stylish and very wearable. Don't miss this opportunity to meet the designers and shop limited edition styles.

Esin Akan

Prior to launching her luxurious handbag brand, Esin Akan worked at Burberry where she specialized in leather handbags. Her experience in the luxury sector revealed a gap in the market for a stylish and functional handbag range. Her handbags have been thoughtfully designed with the busy professional woman in mind.

The modular designs help women transition to different environments in an elegant and stylish way: from the office to the gym, a meeting to a cocktail party, even to a weekend abroad. The sophisticated exteriors are blended with practical interior compartments to accommodate all daily work essentials including laptops, iPads, keys and mobile phones. All handbags are crafted in luxe bespoke leathers. Akan describes the philosophy of her handbags as "helping busy women to “ do-it-all!” with confidence and style.

Astrid & Miyu

Connie Nam is the CEO and co-founder of Astrid & Miyu. Connie was born in Seoul and worked around the world in investment banking and luxury branding at LVMH before launching Astrid & Miyu.

Astrid & Miyu design unique yet wearable jewellery. The styling of the brand is timeless and effortless with a subtle twist. The brand's customers have become their inspiration when designing new ranges.

Since launching in 2011, Astrid & Miyu has become the go-to brand for fashion editors, having been featured in all major publications including Vogue, Grazia, Instyle and Marie Claire. The brand has also grown a following amongst many celebrities including Pippa Middleton and the cast of Made in Chelsea.

Matilda & Quinn

Matilda & Quinn is the go-to brand for the multi-scenario dress, started by former lawyer Sally Hartfield. The British-made brand reinvents classic shapes with a quirky modern twist in unusual textures and rich bursts of colour. It is unsurprising that the brand's demure and stylish dresses have harnessed a loyal following amongst a host of celebrities including BBC Breakfast's Louise Minchin, Lorraine Kelly and Kate Garraway. The brand's garments create a balance between what is wearable and flattering but also stylish and individual. The brand also produces very limited edition occasion wear pieces in each Collection - perfect for Summer weddings and the Races.


Sigrid Gelati-Meinert created Peponita as a brand dedicated to beautiful block heels you can actually walk in sharing the same ethos of day-to-evening style. Influenced by classic and vintage design, but applying modern patterns, textures and colours. Peponita shoes are made with 2.25" heels. Women no longer have to sacrifice comfort for style.

Designed in London and made in Italy, the shoes draw the best from both: the urban chic of London combined with the quality shoe-making tradition of Italy. In Gelati-Meinert's words, the shoes are designed for "free thinking, independent women who appreciate quality, craftsmanship and style" and are named after London locations in the city "I grew-up in and love." Peponita Shoes: keeping working, walking women in heels. A limited edition ballerina completes the range.

The prices range between £35 and £495.
