It was a lot of fun.’ What is there too much of on Instagram? ‘Long captions and heaps of hashtags – let the visual do the talking.’ Give us your three fantasy dinner party guests… ‘Mélanie Laurent, I think she’s enchanting.

He has been creating handbags for over 50 years. We co-founded our bag company to showcase his craftsmanship,’ says Merve. ‘Each piece of Manu Atelier is created by hand from the finest leathers.’ ‘EVERY WOMEN NEEDS A GREAT BAG,’ says Beste. ‘A unique, modern style brings an outfit together.
