Hopeful is a new womenswear accessories brand founded in 2017 by designer Dominique Verner to create items with pared back styling and subtle detailing with clean, yet feminine designs.
Dominique studied fashion at Brighton University and worked as a designer and buyer for top UK and International brands before working independently as a jewellery designer. She has always been inspired by simplicity and functionality paired with a stylish aesthetic.
Hopeful bags have a distinct and contemporary feel. Dominque's carefully edited range of super soft leathers, suede and denim include distressed detailing - and the use of sheepskin, velvets and cord add a new interest for the AW18 season. SS19 continues with the mix of fabric contrasts using lurex thread, chevron detailing, a signature print and a cool sophisticated palette.
Slouchy yet simple considered designs, the beautiful use of colour and contrast of fabrics and leathers create minimalist investment pieces with a strong sense of style and appeal.
