In the last year and a half, as everybody adapts to a new normal, fashion has leaned towards a no-frills, necessities-only philosophy that not only led to the down-sizing of wardrobes, but also prompted us to cut down on the literal baggage that we carry with us each day. Small bags are the practical choice du jour – holding only essentials, they are the perfect companions when you want to travel light.
Top handle bags will always look sophisticated and polished, whatever their size. A puffy quilted finish will transform a handy mini tote bag into an elegant statement piece. A shoulder strap and an eye-catching chain embellishment inject a youthful and edgy energy into a structured trapeze bag, making it suitable for both business and pleasure.
The addition of a chain strap will not only add an interesting visual dimension to a design, but also increase its style mileage. A black boxy clutch is a minimalist must-have, and a glamourous chain link handle beautifully enhances its utility. A striking trapeze handbag stands out even more when adorned with a gold chain that doubles as a second handle.
Shoulder bags are adored by busy modern women who not only want their bags to look stylish, but also fit into their fast-paced lifestyles. The mini Gabine saddle bag – a more compact version of the best-selling original – looks sleek and impeccable in a luxurious dark green finish. Unapologetically feminine, our trapeze shoulder bag in lovely cream charms with its unique metallic push lock buckle and functional chain strap.
There are few colour combinations that are as timeless and chic as black and gold — the versatility of black is complemented by the brilliance of gold. This fail-proof palette can refresh classic styles, such as an oval chain-embellished crossbody bag and a puffy quilted handbag, elevating them from good to great.
