There’s no investment piece quite like a bag. Here, the YOU magazine fashion team round up the pieces that have serious forever appeal, from brands including Theory, Radley, Aspinal of London and Danse Lente.
The Parisian brand takes its name from the French ‘elle aime’ meaning ‘she loves’, and we’re certainly swooning over its range of pared-down classics.
High-end Italian craftsmanship meets stripped-back Scandinavian style in this range of bags that are designed to look sleek season after season.
The New York label has long been a go-to for everyday luxe with enduring style, and this on-trend tan bag will be in your wardrobe long after autumn/winter 2018.
The New York label has garnered a huge following thanks to its sleek Italian-made designs that eschew frills and focus on colour, texture and subtle details.
Designed by sisters Pookie and Louisa Burch (stepdaughters of Tory), this US accessories line mixes retro flourishes with a modern spirit to create timelessly elegant pieces that will see you through seasons to come.
The London-based label’s innovative approach to colour and structure, combined with meticulous craftsmanship, have earned it a cult following. One to watch for standout designs that won’t date.
