The It-bag barometer
The multi-hued Miu Miu
Potentially the It bag to end all It bags, Miu Miu’s candy-coloured creation in leather and python with a Plexiglas handle is just screaming out to be cradled in the crooks of our elbows.
The new Gucci
New creative director, new era, new monogrammed bag complete with sweet antique-rose suede geranium embellishment, paying homage to Dionysus, the god of wine/partying/fun. Excellent. We’re completely smitten with it, tbh.
The cult upstart
The New York label Mansur Gavriel has created quite a sell-out frenzy since its launch two years ago. If you manage to snap up one of these leather bucket bags in the hue of the season (red), we will be jealous.
The quiet companion
For all you minimalists terrified by the thought of shouting, splashy coloured offerings, may we suggest Cos’s perfect grey wool backpack? An understated statement if ever we saw one.
The fun friend
Thinking ahead to those dreary, rain-soaked winter days, we recommend this jolly little chap from River Island, the Marci blocked-colour bag. Guaranteed to bring bus-stop cheer.
