From totes to clutches, these are the season’s best handbags for all budgets.
The right new season handbag could update your whole wardrobe
Long gone are the days when a handbag was merely something to carry your stuff in. In 2020, bags are serious business and matching the right shape and style of purse to your outfit can truly make or break your look. That said, spending a fortune isn’t always necessary. This season, from high-end designer to high street, there’s a host of seriously lust-worthy styles out there for every budget. Here’s our pick of the best!
Aby chain shoulder bag, BHD942, Chloé at Saks Fifth Avenue, visit City Centre Bahrain
Chloé was among the first brands to really see the power of a true statement handbag with its original, and much copied, Paddington, and it’s been producing some of the fashion’s best, season after season, ever since. For spring 2020, our pick of its bunch is the Aby, which draws on the brand’s heritage with a lock based around the Paddington original. Crafted in croc-effect leather, with a gold, double sliding chain strap, it’ll upgrade every outfit in an instant.
Tote bag with bamboo handle, BHD20, Parfois, visit City Centre Bahrain
Traditional, top-handled totes are big news this season and this Gucci-inspired bamboo-handled number from purse-friendly Parfois ticks all the boxes. Crafted in hard-wearing faux skin, with a clip-on shoulder strap for day-to-day practicality, it’s roomy enough for all your essentials, but still stylish enough to take you from the office to a night out with ease.
Prede cross body bag, BHD23, Aldo, visit City Centre Bahrain
Another high street number seeking inspiration from Alessandro Michele’s Gucci, this Aldo Prede bag looks far more expensive than reality. In a tan suede-effect upper, with leather-look stripes and gold hardware, it’ll look as cool thrown over a white T and jeans as it will pair with the season’s tailoring.
