Common People’s new collection 

The most anticipated collection launch is finally here! Common People has just released a striking new collection brilliantly named ‘Brakes Off’. Jodie Calder, Founder, and Designer curated the most beautiful collection for those who have the desire to let loose and take a load off their shoulders. The collection consists of structured totes, briefcases, saddlebags, belt bags, cross-body bags, and silk scarves that uses bold and solid colours with a running theme of cobalt blues. In the classic Common People style, the use of contrasting materials such as leather, acrylic chains, and thick nylon straps is apparent more than ever.
