The Bayswater, launched in 2003, has become a Mulberry icon, and we're lusting after the latest model of the natural grain leather bag in on-trend Oxblood. This is the ultimate timeless shoulder bag, mixing effortless style with luxury thanks to its brushed leather interior and signature gold postman's lock.
No longer strictly functional or sporty, backpacks are a must-have fashion staple. We love the soft pebbled leather Piper bag from Fossil, perfect for the on-the-go style set with chic exterior zippers.
Our newest favourite from the Orchard Street collection, the Kate Spade New York Orchard Street Dillon is a go-to for work or the weekend. Made of pebbled cowhide with a matte finish, the Dillon features a charming (and detachable) double tassel, 14 karat gold plated hardware and an optional crossbody strap.
The bucket bag's moment is far from over. From the Dryden collection by Lauren Ralph Lauren, the Debby bag is lightweight and cinches at the front with the signature LRL monogram on display along with a leather luggage tag. Use the shoulder strap to dress it down or remove it for a glammed up look - the bag even comes with a removable pouch to easily access your phone, cards and keys.
The perfect slouchy shoulder companion, the black and light gold pebble leather Edie handbag from Coach is both lightweight and easy to style. With three hidden compartments inside to stash your most prized possessions, the Edie is sleek in the brand's style, finished with the iconic mini turnlock.
Recognisable thanks to the iconic golden orb logo, the new Mac Charles tartan bag from Vivienne Westwood's Derby Collection is structured yet spacious, the perfect carry-it-all everyday companion. We love the graffiti orb lining, gold studs and internal pockets.
The retro inspiration behind the Italian Gianni Chiarini's tan Heléna bag makes it relevant for the season, and the perfect ready-for-anything style. Whether it's packed with the best tech for a meeting or supplies for a weekend day out, the minimalist design, made from saddle leather, is elegant and understated.
Last but certainly not least, there's no better way to look chic while on the move than with a quirky bag from Lulu Guinness. We love the classic medium-sized leather Daphne bag, the perfect size for day-to-night style. Wear it in red (with an optional crossbody strap) for a pop of bright colour to a monochrome outfit.
