A pouch bag is this year’s perfect party piece


By Niamh ODonoghue

A pouch bag is this year’s perfect party piece

The pouch is the bag of the moment. Categorised by their square-ish and often elongated shape, they are constructed from luxe materials with a short hard handle or sometimes a long, woven or plaited handle. They’re usually finished with stand-out details like precious metals and gemstones or over-the-top tassels.

These formal, decorative and delicate bags won’t offer much room for anything other than your favourite lipstick and phone (isn’t that all you need, really?). But what they will offer the modern woman is an additional layer to the perfect winter outfit and a little bit of added luxury. This is a small accessory with a big impact and here is a stunning selection of our favourite pouch bags to pack a punch this party season.
