Fall’s Sweetest Bags Come By Way Of London

French & English Confectioner's bags look good enough to eat: Shiny, structured, leather carryalls with fun details, like roughly scalloped edges or trompe l’oeil stitching. Handmade in London, the brand specializes in tweaking the classic frame with unexpected-yet-simple updates—wedged color-blocking, teardrop cutouts—and the results excite the bag ladies in all of us. The cream patent-leather satchel is the spice to what was once a boring vanilla satchel; The mouse-gray patent rucksack, a perfect update to the expected haphazard backpack. With a clear, feminine lean and a rebellious edge, French & English Confectioner's are like the prim and frilly girl gone wild. And, undoubtably, we totally dig it.
