TOP 5 Bags For AW15


If there is one thing certain for Autumn 2015 it’s that our wardrobes would be nothing without a notice-me handbag or glitzy statement clutch.

Statement handbags and bold jewellery supplied an extra degree of visual appeal and detail to all catwalk ensembles. From Gucci, to Saint Laurent, to Balenciaga, and more, we can’t decide which bag to stop gawping over and to grasp for first!

With so much choice, it can be difficult to decide which handbag to stop lusting over and to finally commit to. Thankfully for you (though with some difficulty for us), we have narrowed it down to our Top 5 bags you need to have for Autumn/Winter15.

Conveniently, a fusion of all things ultra-feminine with eye-catching quirky detail means that the versatility of each bag is endless, it just requires a little bit of style savvy…

1) Balenciaga Giant City

Available in a range of colours this Balenciaga Giant City bag is perfect for every day use and adds a touch of subtle glamour to any casual day-time outfit. In true Balenciaga style, studs embellish the leather whilst the detachable across the body strap means it can be carried on your arm too.

2) Gucci Bamboo Leather Shopper

Out for lunch or shopping in the city, this Bamboo Leather Shopper by Gucci is innovative as well as stylistically distinctive. The bold red is a beautiful flash of colour for an all-black ensemble, and we LOVE the bamboo handle.

3) Jimmy Choo Marilyn Metallic Clutch Bag
