Mulberry’s Iconic It Bag Just Received an Upgrade—Now It’s Better Than Ever

Influencers, editors and many stylish customers have been turning to this signature shape, with its instantly recognisable Postman’s lock, since it was first introduced back in 2010. Some handbags don’t stand the test of time, but thanks to the Lily’s versatility and minimalistic chain-strap design, it has surpassed a fleeting trend moment and become a classic buy. And now that the clever Mulberry team is using innovative methods to produce a carbon-neutral range of 12 different Lily bags, its status has shot up once more. We like our investment buys to be both infinitely re-wearable and created consciously so they have as little impact on the environment as possible.

Trust Me—These Basket Bags Will Look Good With Every Single Summer Outfit

In my homeland, Ghana, an abundance of palm grows far and wide across the continent, which subsequently makes raffia one of the humble cornerstones of the bustling economy. It carries the load of labourers with ample provisions and is also used to tote everyday essentials. Although the millennia aged woven technique has gained popularity of late, the ancient material carries the pride and integrity of cultures and much like those life stories, it’s made to be lived in. Made covetable by style icon Jane Birkin (who wore hard shell wicker with effortless allure in the 60s/70s), it’s evident that basket bags are an accessory that can truly withstand the test of time. There’s nothing that conjures the feeling of summer quite like swapping a leather tote for a jute, bamboo, or palm weft bag at ...

I Think This Is the One Handbag That Genuinely Goes With Everything

Some of you know exactly which designer handbag you want to invest in. In fact, you might always reach for the same style, colour and brand each and every time, safe in the knowledge that you’ll get endless use out of it. But sometimes, The One can be a little different than you’d expect. Case in point? White handbags have become surprising sidekicks to so many editors in the Who What Wear London office.  Bright-white handbags, like shoes, for a long time had a reputation for being tacky and cheap-looking. However, if you look at the bags from Gucci, Chloé and Prada, you’ll find that many of the most elegant styles are actually in an ivory hue. White handbags might seem like a summer accessory, but they look just as good with chunky knitwear, beige bla...

I Think This Is the Chicest Bag You’ll Find for Summer

Ever since Jonathan Anderson joined the Spanish heritage brand Loewe as creative director back in 2013, I have been considering purchasing one of its covetable bags. The hammock! The puzzle! The cushion tote! I just adore them all, and if I am ever to invest in a designer bag, there is no doubt about it that I would head straight to Loewe. The bags typically cost around £2000, however several years ago the house cleverly introduced an ‘entry level’ option—its logo-emblazoned basket bag. The rest is history, as these raffia totes are still selling like hot cakes.  This year Loewe has debuted a new, more relaxed summer style—a canvas top handle bag which is under £1000, making it more accessible than the brand’s other signature leather styles. The Cubi is a newbie for spring ...

The Lesser-Known Basket Bag on Every Fashion Person’s Wish List This Year

You won’t find any shouty logos here, just timeless totes, all handcrafted by skilled artisans using traditional techniques. These minimalist designs have been on our radar for a while now as they’ve grown in popularity and exposure over the past couple of years, but it’s not just us crushing on these beautiful bags. A quick scroll through the brand’s Instagram feed shows they count celebrities such as Ashley Olsen (surely the holy grail of fashion people), Alexa Chung and even Killing Eve’s Villanelle as fans—along with countless stylish influencers and editors. Who What Wear UK’s editor in chief, Hannah Almassi, has been wearing her Triple Jump style to the office recently and regularly declares her love for its versatility.  The best part? All of Dragon Diffusion’s ...

These 13 Anti-Trend Bags Are the Moment

There’s no denying the renewed interest in classic style and timeless investment purchases recently. Classic outfits are appearing more and more in the wardrobes of insiders, with looks leaning heavily into fashion-forward staples like tailored blazers, crisp button-downs, and polished loafers. Investment-bag purchases have also been on the rise, with iconic styles including the Hermès Kelly bag increasing dramatically in sales over the last several years. So what does this signal? While cool, trendy bags are still mega-hot items, classic bags are in full focus as shoppers are prioritising smart investment purchases that will withstand the test of time. That’s also translating to what we’re seeing on the market, where brands are introducing styles that are of the mom...

6 Trendy Handbag Colours That Are Winning Spring 2022

Congrats—we’re almost out of the thick of winter! Thick puffers and shearling coats will soon be a thing of the past, so let’s shift focus to a few spring trends to celebrate the occasion. From mega totes to Y2K shoulder bags and glossy top-handle styles, we’ve already seen this season’s handbags take shape in several diverse forms. But of course, it’s not just the silhouettes that we’re excited about—plenty of bold colours are also on the menu. While it’s expected to see loads of punchy pigments on the spring runways, we’ve noticed a few new shades frequently cropping up across a gambit of designers like Versace, Bottega Veneta, and Valentino. Marking a change from last year, soft bubblegum pink has been swapped out for bold Valentino pink, saffron an...

Prediction: Everyone Will Want to Wear This Designer Bag in 2022

As far as we’re concerned, no designer handbag collection is complete without the addition of a Saint Laurent bag. We believe them to be just as classic as Chanel, Hermès, Celine and Dior, and we think they deserve just as much consideration if you’re fortunate enough to be contemplating a new designer-handbag purchase.  Founded in 1961, the French fashion house designed pieces that tapped into the utilitarianism that many designers at the time embraced by way of tailoring and heavier fabrications. Although bags were never brand founder Yves Saint Laurent’s primary focus, he approached the category with the same utilitarian goal to create items of quality, practicality and longevity. You Deserve to Make Money Even When you are ...

Even I Wouldn’t Guess These Expensive-Looking Handbags Were High Street

The next level down includes some really exciting contemporary accessory brands, from Wandler and Staud to Neous and A.P.C.— all sitting between the £200-£700 price point and perfect for a payday treat to yourself or big birthday gift. But what’s really got us bag-loving folk excited over the past couple of seasons is the seriously expensive-looking styles coming out of the high street.  We’re talking supple, buttery leather styles and chic baskets that get our hearts racing almost as much as a brand new Prada. And luckily it’s all our our favourite go-to high street destinations that seem to have gotten the memo: COS, Arket, & Other Stories, Jigsaw and Mango have all stepped up their bag game recently to inc...

This Particular Bag is Adorning the Arms of Every Fashion Person Right Now

The truth is, you’ll struggle to find any stylish woman who hasn’t either a) tried out a throwback trend from the ‘90s, or b) still owns a original piece from this decade (of their own or passed down). An iconic year where Kate Moss’s slip dress made its mark and Julia Roberts made a case for baggy jeans, a white T-shirt and leather blazer, there are so many trends that have made their way back into our wardrobes. And one that’s stealing the show for yet another season is the shoulder bag. Be it the new Celine Ava model Kaia Gerber has been wearing with absolutely every outfit, or the Triomphe style that’s as popular as the matching Celine logo belt everyone has been wearing. It bag labels Manu Atelier and JW Pei have also created nod to the ‘90s bags in an array of different sha...
