Muted, natural and nude palettes are hitting our sweet spot lately. Chloe this season does handbags in lovely calming shades, just see the adorable Tess with ring clasp detail. Softly curved, functional with interesting hardware elements, this all nods to the French brand’s strengths in feminine, free and fierce women’s style.

When it comes to Chanel – a take on classic signatures always tops my list, so we’re in love with adorable quilted black leather bags like the box clutch with braided chain and leather strap and the exaggerated leather frill on the strap of this nifty model.

“Serpenti Through the Eyes of Alexander Wang” is a transformation the iconic Snake symbol of BVLGARI, with fresh New Yorker eyes. The star of this capsule collection, the hero Belt Bag comes in in three delightfully gentle new colours – Baby Blue, Peach and Pink (only for mainland China) joining classic black and white versions.

We know that supermodel Liu Wen is a fan of Mulberry’s Belted Bayswater Satchel in baby blue. We’re also fan-girling over this cool, versatile bag — a modern take on a total classic.

Model Hailey Bieber (wife of Justin) looks divine in this casual get up with her black Saint Laurent shoulder bag slung over. Make like this style setter with this classic looking model featuring that lovely YSL clasp.

The Bobby Bag is a gorgeous selection available in sophisticated classic hues ranging from black, white and warm brown leather. The soft leather and braided lacing construction makes for a nod to 70s vintage and crafty vibes.

Known more for his cool English men’s fashion, Paul Smith womenswear line is highly underrated. We love his quality fabrics, wearable chic and beautiful tailoring for women. Then there are wonderful accessories such as this leather cross-body bag in colour blocks with several pouches.
