I’m not as much of a fashion person as I am a home person and would rather spend £50 on a Jonathan Adler whale jar than a handbag (i think I might have lost a little perspective on this) but when I saw Baggu’s simple leather shoppers in an array of candy colours [new editions to their classic black and tan colours] at the New York Gift Fair last month – at even £120 a tote, I found it very hard not to justify a purchase. Stylish, enormous and classic, these bags are so beautiful in person. Baggu also sell super covetable crescent shaped purses in the same colours cleverly made from the offcuts!
If a leather Baggu isn’t in your budget their signature stylish useful reusable and fold-able nylon shopping bags are available in over 50 colours and prints. At £12 a pop you can have one of each!
They also affordable ipad cases, laptop cases, rucksacks, zip bags and book bags…
