Held at London's member's only club, Lou Lou's, on Tuesday night, Thakoon Panichgul was joined by a group of elite guests, including Phoebe Collings-James, Marissa Montgomery, Sophia Hesketh, Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis, Rebecca Guinness, Alice Naylor-Leyland and Juliet Angus, and many more, for a private dinner party in honour of his new handbag range.

While the crowd mingled, Panichgul discussed his new year resolutions, his biggest achievements and why he wanted to create a handbag line: "Quality. I needed to make sure the right hands were crafting the leather that I was going to design and put my name on," he noted.

There are three styles in the Italian-made collection, which will debut at retailers including Net-a-Porter and Harvey Nichols come February.
