Ryder Cup - Meg & Bee

Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

 

‘The Classic Kit Bag’; a leather bag designed by quintessential British brand, Meg & Bee, was worn by the wives and girlfriends of the European Ryder Cup Team whilst supporting their partners out on the course during last week’s matches at Whistling Straits, Wisconsin, USA.

Founders of the London-based company, Meg Tudball and Bee Paul, could not have been more honoured or more excited to provide one of their eye-catching crossbody designs for the captain’s, vice-captains’ and players’  partners in attendance at the 43rd staging of the Ryder Cup that was won in such convincing style, 19 points to 9, by an indomitable American team.

For a young, fledgling company like Meg & Bee to be asked to be a part of one of the world’s greatest sporting events is totally overwhelming and to be chosen over hundreds of other established fashion brands is simply an amazing compliment for our bags,” commented Bee, who alongside great friend Meg established the brand just three years ago.

When the brand was chosen by European Team Captain Pádraig Harrington’s wife, Caroline, as the on-course bag for the week, Meg & Bee put together a selection of combinations (ie a bag, strap, tassel and charm) to reflect the European Team colours. The bag chosen was a navy leather camera style crossbody (The Navy Classic Leather Kit), a dark blue strap embossed with gold stars (The Navy Gold Circus Strap) and a contrasting Suede Navy Tassel. It proved extremely popular with the wives and girlfriends, most of whom were seen wearing them out on the course whilst following the golfing action.

The eponymous brand only launched in 2018 but already its striking bags, straps, tassels and charms are loved and worn by many women all over the world including a range of high profile personalities here in the UK such as Gaby Roslin, Davina McCall, Lisa Faulkner and Dame Kelly Holmes.

Meg & Bee boasts a variety of different-sized crossbody bags named Major Kit, Classic Kit, Mini Kit & Limited Kit as well as their New Mobile Kit, all of which can be customised with various straps, tassels and charms. Each design bears the brand’s unique signature gold star disc charm, the hallmark of a Meg & Bee bag.

All individually designed by Bee and Meg, from handpicking the leathers and choosing threads and inks, the affordable, high quality leather bags and wallets are made in a small workshop in Spain. Available in a plethora of brightly coloured and soft pastel leathers and suedes, means there is something to suit everyone’s individual style.
