The ‘Marseilles’ Flap Over Tote Bag
One of the most functional bags in the collection, as the long strap allows you to wear the bag either over your shoulder, or hands-free or for when things are getting a bit hectic in your lifestyle. Or wear this Spring beauty by its handle for seriously on-trend arm candy. The delicate pink colour makes this bag a great addition to your Spring 2012 wardrobe.
The ‘Helsinki’ Large Shoulder Bag
Spacious enough for all your essentials, and in the perfect hues for Spring, this luxurious waxed canvas bag will pair well with a simple, neutral outfit for a pop of colour and interest. This floral print also comes in a small cross body style and a flap over tote style if you’re after a smaller, more practical shape.
The ‘Cordoba’ Large Flap Over Shoulder Bag
Choose sherbet pink, ivory or classic tan in this style, and you’ll be set for Spring. Made from buttery soft leather and in a classic, on-trend shape, this bag will set you on the right path for effortless, classic style in 2012.
The ‘Carriage’ Medium Flap Over Bag
Get some serious style envy and channel fashion icon Alexa Chung with this preppy, mid-size satchel style bag. Pair with a pretty floral-print skater dress and tan brogues for a contemporary take on vintage chic.
The ‘Nice’ Small Tote Bag
Lace was one of the biggest trends on the catwalk this season, and it wasn’t in a subtle or flimsy way. This year, go big and structured with lace, and what better way to wear it than with this stunning white, lace laser cut tote bag. Equally, choose navy, red or a metallic silver in this style. Girly is the way to go this Spring!
