Handbags You’ll Want To Get Your Hands On Now

Are you bored with the sales by now? Here’s some new-season handbags that can be enjoyed whatever the weather!

Often I find “quirky” bags a bit, well, try hard. But this leather clutch from Uterque really works. The quality of the leather elevates it, while the combination of textures and shapes feels effortless.

Clutch with bejewelled face design, €99 at uterque.com

This tactile suede slouchy bag by Irish designer J.W.Anderson is is a real wow piece… unfortunately so is the price. But if you can afford it the soft shade of cornflower blue and signature barbell ring looped through the front will really elevate an outfit.

Hobo large suede shoulder bag, J.W.Anderson, €1,495 at matchesfashion.com

This is one of my favourite bags of the new season so far. I’m really drawn to the athleisure-style striped crossbody handle, which can be neatly tidied away if you want a classic tan tote instead. This is very much a two-for-the-price-of-one piece.

Leather tote with metal details, €199 at Massimo Dutti

This orange shopper is top of my wish list right now. The colour is divine and will warm up all of my winter outfits when the time comes. I love that it’s completely minimalist, with no fussy detailing. It’s timeless.

Bonded shopper bag, €60 at Warehouse

The 1970s?is set to be a strong trend for AW17, and this bag nods subtly to the decade. It’s modern, but with a retro reference. That’s the way to embrace this trend?with falling into caricature.

Lou bag, medium model, €265 at Sandro
