Lulu Guinness makes handbags, purses, clutches, luggage, and similar items all with a view to originality and flair and with the trademark lips emblem. One Lulu Guinness line advertises 'keep it clashing', acknowledging that it's not going to match much of anything.


Lulu Guinness products aren't for the conservative. They flash, flaunt, and fairly shout, drawing attention to themselves and letting the world know you're not afraid to be seen. Carry it with pizazz in a Lulu Guinness handbag.
