OSPREY LONDON'S Must-Have Bags
From micro bags to patent pink, OSPREY LONDON give us the low-down on the must-have bags for SS17.
Trend: In The Pink
After years in the fashion wilderness, it’s impossible to escape the rise of fuchsia pink this season. On catwalks from London to Milan, fuchsia was shown head to toe, accessorised with… you guessed it, a fuchsia pink leather bag for a look that was sharp and modern rather than soft and girly.
The Annecy Grab in Fuchsia Fantasy Anaconda leather, Was £125, Now £69 (Also available in black, purple & teal)
Trend: Micro Bags
Give your back a rest and opt for one of this season’s cute little bags. Whether worn on a long strap or over the wrist, micro bags are great if you’re popping out at lunchtime or leaving your workbag by your desk. In SS17, they’re also a great option for festivals and parties and no, you simply can’t carry his phone/wallet – there’s no room!
The Ronni Cross-Body in Navy/Yellow Glazed Calf leather, Was £135, Now £85 (Also available in tan/lime, tan/pink & navy/pink)
Trend: Shirting Deconstructed
Inspired by Comme Des Garçons long admired take on deconstructed Men’s striped shirts, this Women’s wear look sees dresses, shirts and tunics in multiple shirting materials, with asymmetric fastenings. Worn with statement glasses and flat chunky shoes, it needs a structured bag to pull the look together.
The Correspondent Work Bag in black Croc leather, Was £395, Now £245 (Also available in assorted colours and leathers)
Sportswear. Athleisure. Sports luxe. Whatever you want to call it, the sportswear trend is here to stay. Think go faster stripes on loose fit trousers worn with vest tops and zip-through hoodies in luxe fabrics in pastel shades or brights. Accessorise with a little cross-body bag or rucksack in any colour but brown!
The Madison Backpack in navy Nappa leather, Was £145, Now £95 (Also available in black)
Trend: The Trench
The return of the trench coat is good news for UK fashion lovers for whom the sun cannot be guaranteed, even at the height of summer. This season, the trench is uniformly khaki, with faint militaristic overtones. Team with tan or tobacco leather accessories and you have the look off pat.
The Hunter Weekender in stone Canvas/Old Calf leather, Was £195, Now £95
