Mixed blessings, that's her bag

It would be easy to assume that Fiona Kotur has a massive wardrobe given the size of her sprawling apartment. And if you knew Kotur's fashion background, you might also suppose that it is catalogued and categorised like a museum collection. But this is not the case. Her wardrobe is down to earth, and she shares it with her husband.

Size matters

You just have to admit it: bigger is better. This season, bags are huge - literally, says Isabelle-Marie Creac'h. Titanic totes graced numerous catwalks, from Bottega Veneta to Prada, Burberry and Dior. For once, outsize doesn't mean out of style. A word of caution: more space means more clutter, so choose a light-weight, long strapped version. Now, get carried away!
