The Brit-Designed Bags To Covet Right Now

Update: This post was originally published on June 26, 2013.
Handbags and ladies. Like peas in a pod, they go together hand in hand — literally. The saviour of our unorganised selves, we consider them our ultimate BFF, constantly saving the day by carrying all our essentials. (Yes, five lipsticks, 6 pens, two apples and an iPhone charger are essentials.)
And yet, one is never enough. So, allow us to introduce you to a whole range of new “chums.” From indie designers to fashion’s major players, they're all represented here. And seriously, you’re going to want to befriend them all. Oh, and they’re Brit, each and every one of them. Enjoy.
