Big Sis Tilly - Grey Embossed Croc
This season is inspired by Roanne’s obsession and ‘love affair’ with the work of NZ artist André Hermer. The paintings are made up of brush strokes which are part digital, part actual paint creating a tension between the real and the virtual.
This play on your visual reality culminates in the Matilda handbag, with its two-tone holographic leather, which is both mushroom and khaki.
The Serendipity Ave babes Nami and Pascale test drive the Matilda handbag, and here is what they have to say...
"The search for a classic clutch bag is finally over folks: stop what you’re doing and listen up!
You’re not truly into fashion if you haven’t experienced the handbag dilemma. You know the one: the ‘this-handbag-is-too-big-for-
my-outfit-I’m-not-going-out-an ymore’ dilemma. The ‘I-love-this-bag-but-it-doesn’ t-fit-shit’ dilemma. We have all been there, trust.
But those days are gone: say goodbye to that drama and meet the Matilda bag from Saben. With all of its convenient wallet-like functions in a handbag, it’s just that right size to shove in all of your necessities and maybe even your iPad (to finish off a few emails after work or even on the way to the cafe/bar – hey, we don’t judge!)
We also love the fact that you can take the Matilda from day to night by simply removing the strap to make the bag into an oversized clutch. Life hack girls, thank us later.
Seriously: your hardest decision would be choosing which colour to buy. Check out the options we shot with at the cutest little cakery, Bluebells, over the weekend."
Four of our friends give us a peek at whats inside their Saben bags.
Personal stylist, flamingo lover, wife and mum
Caitlin wears Saben Baby Frankie, a small but slouchy stunner, easy from Monday to fun-day! Cait has even been known to ditch the cross-body strap to wear Baby Frankie as a clutch!
Designer, business owner, creative powerhouse, wife and mum
Roanne wears Saben Gita handbag, made in NZ lamb leather embossed with luxe bubble texture. Paired with Tilly, the perfect pair for a quick trip to Hong Kong.
Mostly business, but of course pleasure!
Tilly is the ultimate wallet. I love that I can organise my life and different currencies with all the internal pockets. Plus still fit my passport. Not only is Tilly a “change your life” kind of wallet she is also elegant enough to use as a clutch in the evenings.

Jess wears Saben Matilda black croc, but for her recent trip to Melbourne swapped it out for larger style Camden Croc - the perfect partner for flight mode.
