Not only is our new Spring Collection now available online and in store, but much like the daffodils and the crocuses, our website has also been given new life this season. We have awoken from our wintery slumber fresh new design.
Inspired by a range of patterns and textures, the Majolica range of O bag accessories recall Mediterranean holidays spent along the towns of the Amalfi coast, where little shops sell earthenware goods hand painted with bright and colourful patterns.
The natural colours of the hassian trims work well in the season of renewal and regrowth, and are thematically complimented by the botanicals range of O clock watch dials. The pastel suede accessories introduce a more luxurious texture to the collection, worked as delicately and beautifully as the finest lace while the brand new Amaranth, Powder Blue, and Aqua colours introduce a striking alternative to the subtle and understated suede pieces.
Launch event for O bag Store Touchwood, England Feb 2016
Claudia Mcintosh (Store Manager) and her team welcomed guests to the launch of the new O bag store, which opened at Touchwood last month, the first concept store in the UK. The invited guests – a mix of clients and associates, including the Mayor of Solihull who cut the red ribbon and made a speech, were treated to champagne and canapés, while they enjoyed the new store and the experience of putting together their own bag and watch to suit their personal style and taste.
When we asked Claudia what she enjoys most about her role, she said "I love helping customers personalise our range of O bag products to create a style and unique look which is individual to them", she says "The products include a vast range of interchangeable watches including the new O clock greats with new straps and larger dials. O bags with many different styles to suit, including the classic and mini, the smaller bags O basket and O pocket, and the recently launched O chic, again all with many accessories which are easily added to or changed. For SS16 there is a fantastic new colour-coordinating collection, all available within our Touchwood store from the end of February". For further information about the Touchwood O bag store please contact Claudia on 0845 519 8181.

Every year the summer holidays see a mass exodus of sun seekers vacating the UK in search of relaxation, sandy beaches and warm weather. Many of these holidaymakers head to the Algarve in southern Portugal, so it is with great joy that we would like to announce the opening of their first Portuguese O bag/Fullspot store in the beautiful town of Albufeira.
Located just a short 10 minute walk from the main beach and a stone’s throw away from Albufeira’s most popular hotels, the store stocks the full range of our products from the O clock and O chive watches to O bags and O pockets. The shop opened little over a week ago and has already enjoyed considerable popularity amongst the local residents and also the many tourists who make their way past the shop on the way to the town centre.
Address: Rua do Município, Edifício Alagoa Mar, Loja 5 – 8200 Albufeira, Portugal
O bag/Fullspot Market Biarritz Opens - May 2013
It's already feeling summery here with the opening of a colourful new O bag/Fullspot Market in Biarritz.
The home of summer surfing is now home to the iconic and entirely Italian made O clocks and O bags. This opening follows others that have taken place in Rome and Milan and is yet another example of our constant expansion as we explore the major summer hotspots.
The new store boasts the O pocket, the small, rubber shoulder bag rubber consisting of two overlapping shells and a strap in canvas or leather. The O pocket’s inner shell is smooth, whereas the outer shell is printed with a wicker pattern. The upper shell slides up the strap to allow access to the inner shell and the shoulder strap is interchangeable thanks to practical button attachments. You can currently choose from a beige cotton or dark brown leather strap with more options coming soon.
The O pocket is produced in 7 spring colours; apple green, sunny yellow, aqua blue, turquoise, grey, orange and rock making in the perfect accessory to brighten up your outfit. Another addition to the collection is the O bag mini, a “slimline” O bag with a semi-rigid EVA shell in 7 colours with smaller dimensions for those who prefer a smaller handbag. Just like its older sister, the O bag mini features a selection of interchangeable handles and interior accessories such as canvas bags thanks to clever fastenings.
These innovations, along with the proven range of products are all designed in Italy. The O bag which is available in 20 colours with multiple interchangeable interior fittings and handles, the O clock wrist watches which can be made into over 1300 possible combinations and the O chive are all examples of his work.
O bag/Fullspot Market Biarritz, 2 Carrefour d’Helianthe 64200 Biarritz, France.
The NEW O pocket - April 2013
Coming soon in April 2013 - the New O pocket Italian Designer handbag.
The O pocket is a brand new designer shoulder bag with a unique method of opening and closing. The special EVA material of which the body is made is worked to make it look like Rattan/Wicker. Colours are 1950 pastels. Soon available to buy online here - watch this space.
This move pushes us clearly into the Fashion Bag sector but maintaining its enviable position as a design house capable of creating personalised products suited to all occasions and fashion trends. Currently being launched in Paris, Berlin, New York, Las Vegas and Milan.

Also arriving on the 22nd - the new Totally Black Limited Edition gift pack - an all black watch (yeah, even the hands are black) and an all black O chive.
New Shops Open Across the World 7th May 2012
As well as having products available in jewellery stores, designer stores and clothes shops, we aim to have our own branded shops.
After the first O bag Stores opened in Venice, Jesolo and Milan, new shops have since been opened in Naples, Perugia, Barcelona and Phuket, the first shops outside of Europe.
We have several ‘temporary shops’ and have opened two more in the stations of Rome Termini and Naples Central, to add to the very popular store in Milan Central. Another will soon be open in Verona’s train station.
Our vision is to keep opening new stores all over the world, so look out for us in your town centres!
