Loud and proud

2016 might just be remembered as the year of the handbag. Whether yours is a predilection for subtle natural leathers or embellished graphic luxury, this season’s ‘it’ bags will lift your spirits in a manner that is anything but boring. When it comes to hue, think bright lego-like colours such as fiery red and primary shades of blue. Taking an outfit from zero to 100 ‘real quick’, take a moment to peruse our favourites with the objective of adding a bold and beautiful bag into your very own collection.
