Six summer bags that let you sizzle, on or off the beach
As the mercury rises, it’s time to sharpen up your look with a brand new bag. Here are six suggestions that look just as good on the street or on the sand
Stella McCartney’s Sport Surf printed eco-nylon backpack
Trust Stella McCartney to deliver pieces that any modern girl will love. This red print backpack is no different, and references the tomboy spirit that so often pops up in her work. It’s a functional and on-trend accessory, suitable for an active and dynamic girl. The bag celebrates McCartney’s sustainability stance, with eco-inspired phrases such as “no fur” and “no leather”. Given that it’s made from recycled nylon, the eco doyenne once again shows how style and sustainability can go hand in hand.
Dior’s “The Magician” evening clutch
Dior has released a series of evening clutches inspired by tarot cards. Apparently Christian Dior was a superstitious man. This clutch pays homage to the magician and comes in white lambskin, featuring aged gold-tone hardware and a convenient hand strap that makes this perfect for a night out.
Prada’s pink micro box bag
Designed to appear like a bejewelled Pandora’s box, this handbag has bronze finished studs and logo on the back, a trunk-style closure and a detachable metal-chain shoulder strap.
This is softened and made summer appropriate with the floral pink brocade exterior and a luxurious silk interior.
Ports 1961’s floral print shopping bag
This shopping bag features a floral medley print and a yellow rope closure. Get beach-ready by pairing it with an equally striking outfit, such as a blue-striped shirt dress and tropical pompom sandals.
Tory Burch’s striped green Bermuda bag
Inspired by the 1970s, this Bermuda bag makes an elegant statement accessory with its striking green suede and leather striped exterior.
Embellished with three gold magnetic closures, the bag can be worn with a removable cross-body strap, or with its curved leather handle. Appropriate for summer parties and tropical getaways, pair it with a white lace dress and a floppy straw hat.
Maje’s knitted cotton M bag
Maje’s M bag received an overhaul this season with a macramé-style knitted cotton exterior. Secured with a magnetised flap, it retains the essence of the original with a modern nod to Coachella. Lined with luxuriously soft lamb’s leather, the bag also features exaggerated rope fringes on the sides. Style this with an airy summer dress for a cool and effortless appearance.
