Cool Britannia

Last November, just one day after Prince Harry and Meghan's engagement was announced, the palace confirmed the first details about the wedding. In a break with royal tradition, which usually sees couples marry on a weekday, the wedding will be held on Saturday 19th May at noon in St George's Chapel, Windsor. This is the same place where Prince Harry was christened in 1984. The ceremony will last one hour, after which Harry and Meghan will take part in a carriage procession around Windsor. Afterwards a reception in St. George's Hall will allow the newly weds to toast their union with their guests.

Inspired by the Royal wedding, here at SageBrown we have come up with our own twist on all things British. Our "Cool Britannia" edit reflects modern, sophisticated contemporary design of the highest quality, whilst maintaining traditional values that last a lifetime.

This beautifully designed soft leather slouchy shoulder bag is effortlessly stylish with a single roomy interior with a secure quality zip fastening. Named Carol Ann, this shoulder bag is beautifully hand-made in soft, high-quality full grain calf leather. With its fluid lines and contours, it not only looks sensational, it feels just right on your shoulder, in the crook of your elbow, or in your hand. The inside is luxuriously lined in sumptuous suede with an internal leather bound zip pocket and a suede slip pocket for personal items like your mobile phone and lipstick. The comfortable handle features gold metal rings attaching it to the bag. This bag is smart enough to use at work, yet at the same time so stylish that it can be taken on a night out to a party or a special dinner. 

When a man says ‘briefcase', he may no longer be talking about the hard-shell type with combination locks, but a soft leather bag, slim enough to carry at his side and spacious enough to transport laptop, documents and all else. The briefcase is secured with a stylish brass alloy clasp. Open to reveal one large compartment, luxuriously lined in sumptuous suede, with three suede pockets to store a mobile device, business cards and other personal effects. Just in front of this is a slim document pocket and there is external storage at the back with a large separate pocket with zip fastening for added security. 

This popular men's messenger bag can be worn across the body, or on the shoulder and can be used as a casual or relaxed business piece. Handmade from full grain cowhide and lined throughout in sumptuous suede, this slim bag will stand the test of time. The front features a flap with a zip closure underneath. Inside is divided into two main sections with an internal zip pocket and smaller leather bound suede slip pockets for personal effects. The shoulder strap is attached to the side of the bag with metal rings and can be adjusted to suit the wearer.

Constructed using our rustic, vegetable tanned calf hide each document case has unique characteristics that will age gracefully adding character over time.This folder is ideal for professionals who want to impress and the retractable handles means you can choose how to hold this smart accessory.


Our Shelley shopper is effortlessly stylish and can be used for the essential shopping trip or as a work bag. A buckle details features on the handles and feels just right on your shoulder or in your hand. Secured with a zip fastening, open up to reveal two main compartments separated with a zip pocket. In the back compartment is a leather bound zip pocket and it's lined throughout in sumptuous contrast suede. In the front there is a padded leather bound slip pocket for a small laptop or electronic tablet. For durability you will find four metal feet on the base. This versatile piece is handmade in calf leather in a choice of full grain, saffiano (criss cross texture) or a crocodile skin texture in an array of colours.


In a class of it's own, this is the ultimate English gentlemen's briefcase. Our best selling style - The Eton, handmade in traditional English bridle hide featuring a solid handmade brass lock, made in England. Connoisseurs of leather will really appreciate the natural patina that develops from the hide, becoming dramatically more beautiful over time. This old school satchel briefcase is beautifully proportioned and allows you to organise with generous storage capacity. There are two main compartments, separated with a zip pocket, beautifully lined in luxurious cream suede. At the front there is a slip pocket for papers and the reverse has a zip pocket. The expandable sides of the main compartments means there is enough space to store most laptops, and you will also find internal pockets to store pens, cards and a mobile device. The bag closes with a solid brass lock, handmade in England with quick release magnetic clasps on reverse of the buckled leather straps. The buckles are a decorative feature and are not meant to be opened. A detachable, adjustable shoulder strap can be attached to the rings on the top of the case to carry in comfort. A really stylish way to arrive at work and impress.   

The official commemorative wedding china for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is now available. The exclusive design in white and cornflower blue has a monogram of the couple's initials at its centre, tied together with white ribbons and surmounted by the coronet of Prince Harry. The decorative border of each piece is inspired by the ironwork of the 13th-century Gilebertus door of St George's Chapel,Windsor Castle. The Gilebertus door is used by Her Majesty The Queen and other members of the Royal Family when attending some services at St George’s Chapel.
