Excited by the weather report (that turned out to be true), last week London experienced sunshine, bright skies, and a temperature of 17 degrees.
I packed my notebook and camera, hitting the high streets and park to see what handbag fashion I could spy.
My day out was nothing short of disappointment. Sorry Britain, but it was London Fashion Week plus warmer weather, and I was agreeing with Dame Vivienne Westwood – have us Brits lost our way with style?
Everywhere I looked all I could see were shabby shoulder bags, backpacks and reusable shopping bags bursting with books, makeup, gym kit, umbrellas and even a hairdryer. To be fair I think the young lady with the broken zipped tatty bag full of hair rollers, hairdryer and books was a beauty student. But still, Britain – pull your fashion sense together!
The weather is getting warmer, but there’s always the chance of being caught away from home in the rain or cold. We need a bag at this time of year to carry a brolly or extra cardi just in case, along with our iPhone, iPad, diary, latest copy of Vogue… You get the picture.
