Long term Hong Kong Yacht Club members get misty-eyed about this club, it’s history and it’s stories. Many claim that it is one of the BEST yacht clubs in the world. It is definitely an important part of our lives and as so many of our prints are directly linked to the sea we are very pleased to be represented there from today in the newly refurbished Ship Shop where you can now find a selection of our handbags and accessories.

Our Weasel pins continue to be extremely popular and we are still posting dozens every week for free to anyone who wants one. I love the reaction when women read the story (you can read the original story in full here) or discover that their Louella Odié bags contain a weasel stud on the inside pocket.
We receive lots of messages telling us why the weasels are needed and saying they love the idea of a secret club. I have been thinking about how the weasel meaning changes from person to person. When I made the first one for Lauren it was partly to show support for the problems she was experiencing at work but mostly to remind her that I was sure she could get through the difficulty she was having.
When I made my own weasel, it was as a talisman for the launch of Louella Odié because I felt horribly shy and exposed to be standing up and saying, ‘look at what I have designed’.
Since then people have said the weasel stands for anything from resisting bullying at work to helping heal a broken heart. It has been sent as a gesture of support between women who recognise that gumption and bloody-mindedness and laughter is sometimes our only weapon against the daily crush. What does it mean to you? Please tell us, I really would like to know.
We also have a few very special hand-embroidered weasel pins which we are offering online now. They would make an excellent gift for anyone embattled, but I also think they might be a perfect token of love for Mother’s Day as I am a great believer that mothers are the worlds super-heroes.
