Behind the Bag: Becca Tock

In our Behind The Bag series, we introduce you to the brilliant people our bags are named after. Below we meet Becca, the tasteful style maven behind our recently updated Rebecca bag.

Becca is a bougie lady who knows her worth. Case in point: she doesn’t have a birthday, she has a birth-week. Every year, she books the week off work and treats herself to a massage and a magnum of champagne. But it’s not just herself she cares for - Becca is a warm, open spirit who has as much time for her friends and whanau as she does for herself. The Wellingtonian did an about turn from a molecular biology degree to a career in beautiful lingerie. Now based in Auckland, she manages New Zealand brand Lonely’s three retail stores. “After some important people in my life supported me to make a change, I chose to follow a career path where I am lucky to be a part of womxn’s experiences,” she explains, “helping them to feel confident and comfortable as they are, each and every day."

Take a closer look at the Rebecca bag, and how Becca’s personality inspired its form.

A romantic at heart, the envelope shape is inspired by Becca’s love of collecting vintage postcards:
“They’re a reminder of a connection between friends, lovers or family; the relic of a moment long gone.” Shop Becca's Rebecca

The Rebecca bag is a new iteration of the Becca bag, now complete with a classy brass lock to keep all your love letters safe. “As my style has become more refined, so too have my needs in a bag,” Becca explains. Shop Rebecca in Seaweed

“I will never go past a bias cut silk dress and soft knit paired with a buttery leather bag and well-designed heel or sandal in leather or suede.”

Please note, here Becca is actually holding a Milly bag, not a Rebecca bag. We do not require her to only carry her namesake purse. She is allowed to have friends. Shop Becca's Milly Bag
