The handbag you throw over your shoulder says a lot about you…
Maybe you’re a busy girl who does a lot on the go, so you need a spacious bag to take you through all the possibilities 24 hours may hold; or you like to keep things minimal and just carry the very basics with you. Either way, I have selected 5 must-have handbags to transition you to autumn in style.
Handbags for style setters
I’ve closely watched London Fashion Week over the last couple of seasons and I researched boutiques around Europe, consulted with Vogue editors and traced specific designers. The result? A selection of show-stopping handbags which can help you express your individuality in such a unique manner, that wearing any of these shoulder accessories will put you straight among the top style setters!!!
Linea cross body clutch
Manofatto means “handwork” in Italian. As a proof of the brand’s manifesto this cross body clutch is a true representation of beautiful craftsmanship, using only high grade Italian leather. Inspired by interior design, it can be worn in two ways – as a cross body and a hand clutch. Coming in 4 vibrant colour combinations, this contemporary bag can not be passed by unnoticed. What is even more exciting – it is hand made in very small quantities to ensure the best quality.
New York based studio OAD claims its love for clean lines and geometric shapes in a range of functional utility handbags. The Vogue endorsed designer Sydney Suh-Lee has worked for names like Calvin Klein and Kate Spade before she emerged with her own label. Her creations are inspired by her own minimalist aesthetics and designed for the busy city girl – with well thought of compartments, spacious interior and crafted from soft pebble leather. The Messenger courier is available to pre-order from the A/W16 collection.
The iconic Italian label O bag is launching a brand new style which will be available in London this autumn. The O city will have a chic urban approach and a customisable box-style waterproof body. You will be able to match the finishes to your preference and wear it with different handles as a handbag or a shoulder bag.
The Czech brand Pixie Crew are living proof that you don’t have to go to school to rock a backpack. Just as your mood changes, so can your bag. The innovative Pixel backpack 10 features a patented silicone panel sized 17×17 pixel points, which gives you 289 positions and literally endless possibilities to create your own designs daily. Inside there is a padded compartment for a 15” notebook, space for A4 documents and a hidden zipper pocket for everyday essentials like your mobile phone, iPod, keys or wallet. All you need to do is get creative!
A balancing act of irreverent design with unassuming elegance comes through these distinctive tote bags. For an easy-going and a little more pared-down look, you can choose from this season’s bucket totes in rich, neutral shades. In typical Marni style, these shopper handbags feature sharply defined, fuss-free shapes.
I’ve been eyeing these bags for a while now and I thought you needed to share the love too. From mini utility style to oversized contemporary design, there is something for everyone and each handbag can be a true presenter of the wearer’s aesthetics.
