Q A I’m after a bag that’s practical but not run-of-the-mill.
The search for the perfect bag takes some consideration – it’s usually a significant investment and will be carried most days if you can’t be bothered swapping bags to match your outfit. Celine’s Big Bag (available, ironically, in small, medium and large sizes) is practical and pleasing to the eye (celine.com). Joseph has a couple of great two-tone options, Marni offers surprising shapes and colour combinations (matchesfashion.com) and Ginger & Smart’s roomy Emmeline tote is an unusual shape (gingerandsmart.com). New to carriers is Maticevski, whose leather offerings include giant clutches and this contrast-handle Mini Shopper (pictured, $1500, tonimaticevski.com).
