Joanna Maxham Handbags

We have a new line of handbags from Joanna Maxham in the shop and they are to die for!

Perfect for an upcoming trip to Paris!

Boasting supple leather and unique shapes, these bags are just as beautiful as they are practical. Gorgeous colors and subtle details make them feel luxurious, but they’re durable enough to wear every day.

Having collaborated with small ateliers in Europe and having hand inspected each one, Joanna makes sure that each bag is perfect. This is definitely one of our very favorite accessories in Dovecote Style!

Come see the different looks, including the “Castaway,” a convertible bag that effortlessly takes you from day to night with a clever set of snaps that allow the bag to present a more streamlined look. The cross-body and shoulder bags are also available in pretty grey color palettes that are foolproof everyday pieces.

The Perfect Final Touch

We asked Fearrington's Wine Director Maxmilian Kast if there was one wine he thought encompassed the holidays, and he had so many favorites he said it might take him until next Christmas to choose!
