Meet the Maggie bag

Launer London tote honours Thatcher

Launer London, beloved handbag brand of the late Baroness Thatcher, are honouring Maggie’s kinship with the label with a unique tote bag - set to become a fashion must-have among Conservative types.

Affectionately named ‘the Maggie range', the bags are selling for just £5 at the Conservative Party Conference, which is happening in Manchester now until 2 October.

The canvas tote features the iconic Adagio handbag, which was one of Baroness Thatcher’s favourite top-handle handbags.

'Working with Launer captures an iconic part of Lady Thatcher's imagery,’ says Scott Seaman-Digby, commercial director for the Conservative Party. ‘It has allowed us to faithfully recreate an item that as well as being a bit of fun is a really great talking point for conference.’
