SS15 Bag Special: Choose Your Side

It’s time to lay down your bets as we weigh up the best bags of the season

 

Get ready for a clash of the titans; a meeting of masters. The best handbags of the season are in the ring and it’s time to decide which side you’re on.

Twinkles Versus Tassels

When the rhythm starts to play, do you like to sashay and sway or do you twinkle and twirl? Dippy hippy dancing girls will love to shake their stuff in lashings of fringe (and Sara Battaglia’s bags offer just that), whereas tiny dancers will opt to twinkle the night away with the light-catching jewels of Marni’s clutch. Which finish will be first past the post?

Little Versus Large

Are you the type of girl who requires the kitchen sink to come with her when she heads out the door for work in the morning? Or would a lip balm, bank card and mobile phone suffice? Perhaps you’re one but wish you are the other? Perhaps you’re the other but wish you could be both? Aha! Luckily, this season, designers have made everyone’s favourite handbags in macro and micro versions so that it can fit right into your life – or you can fit your life into it.

Monochrome Versus Multicoloured

Keep things chic or taste the rainbow? Purists will always opt for the stark minimalism of monochrome, and 3.1 Phillip Lim’s stripes would no doubt delight Coco Chanel, who said, ‘Black has it all. White, too. Their beauty is absolute.’ But what about that surge of unadulterated glee that you get when you open your cupboard doors and take out a starburst of colour? Only those who own a Paula Cademartori bag will understand.

Fun Versus Fancy

Uptown girls, look to Dolce & Gabbana’s Miss Sicily bag: flawlessly structured, timeless, and undeniably feminine – it’s the Monica Bellucci of handbags. Of course, not everybody wants to be a lady. Anya Hindmarch’s spring offering will bring out the naughty schoolgirl in everyone; the pranking, vandalising, truanting nuisance that all of us wish we could be every once in a while. Lady or Lolz? It’s time to lay down your bets.

Slouch Versus Saddle

When it comes to this season’s must-have shape, the fashion world is divided. Should you plump for the horsey lines and rich-girl hardware of Chloè’s Drew bag, which has stealthily crept its way onto every street style blog this season? Or will you slouch your way into the biggest bag trend of the season via Sophie Hulme’s soft-but-sturdy, brilliantly roomy bucket bag? Bonus points for it being able to fit in your lunch Tupperware.

Suede Versus Snake

Rock ‘n’ rollers rejoice: both of your favourite skins are hot hot hot this season. The only problem... how in the name of Mick Jagger do you choose between them? Do you opt for Maison Margiela’s stage-hopping suede – soft and pliable, just like the morals at Woodstock? Or Proenza Schouler’s hard-edged snakeskin, which gives your backstage look just the right amount of bite? Strokeable or serpentine? Only you can decide.
