A new season often involves spring cleaning all aspects of your life, whether it means clearing up your diary, de-cluttering your wardrobe or organising your inbox. If you’re looking for a fresh start then what better way to begin than with one of these pretty bags – the perfect companion for a girl about town.
Shimmering metallic dusky rose and bright-meets-pastel leather tassels give this cute bag by Rebecca Minkoff a quirky, statement feel. There are two to choose from and they come in either clutch or shoulder strap (thick or thin) options. The bag would work well with a suit for a sharp but seasonal office look, although the playful shiny fabric could also be paired with an out-on-the-town outfit.
This timeless deep periwinkle blue bag from Longchamp is the perfect accessory for bright spring days. Perfectly matched with a silk scarf and keyring – also by the iconic French brand – this hand-held tote is ideal for spring weddings or for brightening up a daywear look.
This buttercup yellow (or ‘lemon magnesite niloticus’ to use Cartier’s term) is the perfect hue for sunny spring days. Made of exquisitely crafted crocodile skin, it is a mini model of other designs in the recently launched C de Cartier handbag collection.
The white mini Nile bag is the latest cute-as-a-button offering from Chloé and is the perfect addition to any floral spring look. The fashion house’s newest design, the flap bag can be worn in versatile ways, thanks to the gold bracelet handle and the leather shoulder strap.
Pastel pink hues that contrast with bold blue stripes are the main focal point of this new bag by Fendi. Complete with studded shoulder strap plus a hand strap, the design has been quirkily merchandised using a fluffy rag doll-esque accessory and key ring.
