SoS15 is the brand name of designer and maker extroridinarie Saundra O'Shea.
A graphic designer, Saundra started designing clutch bags in 2015 after discovering a love of glitter fabric. The nature of the fabric lends itself perfectly to the graphic-inspired designs that are synonymous with SoS15.
The motifs of the designs are cut and appliqued entirely by hand at Saundra's South London studio. The 'Glitter' range is made-to-order so you get a bag completely unique to your style. Choose the colour-way, motif or personalise the bag for the ultimate fashion statement!
