brunswick+co. is a collaboration between Alison Booth and Alison Lovell, friends of 20 years. They share a love for fashion and accessories and had long talked about a partnership that would leverage their complementary talents and diverse experiences. When they found themselves next‐door neighbours, they knew it was meant to be and the resulting line of handbags shows that partnership is truly greater than the sum of its parts.

Booth worked at Gap in accessories design, followed by a stint at Celine where she then joined the handbag design team at Coach. Returning to Toronto in 2004, Alison worked at Pink Tartan, focusing on product development. Booth’s formal industry training and obsession with detail are evident in brunswick+co.’s perfect marriage of practicality and high design.
