Handbags are the most useful accessory a woman can have, and we are super excited to report on the 2020 trends that our current collection emulates perfectly. We have selected 4 top trends that are all over the runways that you need to know about. Whether you go big or go small this season, there is something to suit everyone. Our core focus remains on designing timeless bags that are both beautiful as well as functional, that will see you from season to season whilst staying on trend. We bring new life and playfulness to classic shapes and styles, with colours & prints that exquisitely compliment your seasonal wardrobe.
The Elevated Everyday Bag
NET-A-PORTER's fashion director, Kay Barron, recently said "An everyday bag should also know how to function as an evening bag. It also doesn’t need to be a serious bag – there is nothing more joyful than injecting a bit of print, color or embellishment to your practical (or not-so-practical) tote." If there's one tote bag that covers all aspects of this statement, it is The Dahlia 2-in-1. A sumptuously soft, leather tote with internal storage for your laptop, charger, cosmetic bag, water bottle and a dozen other items. It's the bag that allows you to stride into the boardroom with confidence, with the comforting knowledge that you are super organised and ready to take on whatever challenges come your way.
As if this wasn't enough, the Dahlia 2-in-1 boasts a detachable front Ivy clutch, which can be removed and worn alone. The Ivy comes in an array of colours and textures, from exotic animal prints to punchy pops of brights to elevate your business-wear or offset your monochrome look. With ample space to carry your phone, keys, cards and cosmetics, you can head straight from desk to dinner with style and sophistication.
The 'Less-Is-More' Micro Bag
Give yourself and your handbag a well deserved January detox, and indulge in a little sartorial minimalism. Our Rose Micro Bag certainly wouldn't look out of place on a Princess - it has just enough space for all the necessities needed to carry out royal duties. Minuscule but marvelous, micro bags have taken over the runways. It could be argued they aren't as practical as a larger bag, but carrying one enables mobility and feels liberating - less to carry, less to worry about. It's encouraging us to live in a more minimalist way (well, at least kid ourselves we are!) and create an edit of everyday essentials down to the few we actually use.
The Stylishly Sleek Saddle Bag
Forever a fan of bohemian style, but past the stage in our lives of carrying a 'festival-bound' casual boho bag, this streamlined saddlebag is a refreshing and sophisticated take on the 'must-have' bag of yesteryear. With its elegant curved edges, well-wearing hardware and even a soft leather tassel, we will most certainly be saddling up with this laid back style just in time for the up and coming Spring season. The perfect opportunity to leave the heavy tote at home (too heavy!), ditch the clutch (go hands free!) and forget carrying anything. Enough room to hold all your essentials, but destined not to get in your way due to its charming shape that drapes seamlessly over you with its cross-body strap.
The Iris bag holds our best kept secret. Simply open the front flap to reveal a gorgeous Ivy mini bag, that detaches and can be worn alone as separate bag. A saddle bag, mini bag and clutch all in 1 - need we say more...?
The Revamped Bowling Bag
One of the biggest trends of the season is, without a shadow of a doubt, designers relaunching older bags or creating vintage inspired styles. From Dior and the relaunch of their iconic saddle bag, to Prada re-introducing their infamous bowling bag, the throwbacks are well and truly happening. The bowling bag is the perfect combination of sports utility combined with classic luggage, creating an instant cult classic. Our Jessica Bowling Bag comes with symbolic top handles, but we add our own twist with the detachable front Ivy clutch. This allows you to update the front by choosing from a wide range of accessories to suit your own style. Enough space for your laptop, gym kit, lunch and much more, it's time to take a trip down memory lane and bag yourself a bowler.
