Fashion might have cottoned on to this fatigue, or just noticed our bad posture, as models ditched handbags for lanyards and belt-bags at Givenchy, Giambattista Valli and Marc Jacobs. That, or they ditched bags altogether, replacing them with puppies at Max Mara, and baby dragons and (fake) human heads at Gucci.
