Nile Bracelet Bag by Chloé
Fashion has gone full circle quite literally at Chloé, with the release of the Nile Bracelet Bag. This dinky, hands-free darling features the French fashion house’s signature saddle silhouette, which hangs from a gleaming brass bracelet. Is it a bag, is it a piece of jewellery? All we can tell you is that it’s currently selling out faster than you can say micro-tote, proving that small details certainly make a big impression.
£1,150, available at www.net-a-porter.com
Serpenti Forever by Bulgari
We have raved about the Bulgari Serpenti Forever handbag before; a sleek, structured shoulder bag defined by its modernist shape, lustrous chain strap and signature, imposing snake head closure. To mark a new Bulgari pop-up in Harrods, the Italian luxury house has launched three Harrods exclusive Serpenti Forveer handbags in crisp, pristine white. The bag is crafted from Quilted Scaglie calf leather and is also available in a spectrum of other colours and materials at the Bulgari boutique on New Bond Street.
From £1,520, 87-135 Brompton Road, Knightsbridge, London, SW1X 7XL, www.bulgari.com
Ballerina flat by Miu Miu
Miu Miu has upgraded last season’s ubiquitous, cult ballet flat with a new Mary Jane ballerina style, resplendent with retro appeal. The covetable, colourful flat is crafted from supple silk and embellished with intricate leatherwork in luxurious nappa and is available in black, powder pink, dusty blue and jewel emerald hues. Simple slip on, and skip out.

All hail the Happy Tote – the vibrant, versatile, new leather bag from Hill and Friends. The generously sized, cheerful tote is a new shape for the British brand and features the iconic ‘wink’ twist lock. The practical carryall is lined with Italian suede and available in grey, black, toffee and oxblood. Sling over your shoulder for instant gratification.

Box bag by Victoria Beckham
Victoria Beckham has added to her accessory assemblage with a sleek new Box bag for Spring/Summer 2017. The covetable, crescent-shaped design features a gold chain and is available in black, burgundy and optic white. A modern classic in the making, this everyday carryall adds instant elegance.

Broche GG Supreme mini bag by Gucci
Gucci subverts this season’s prim top-handle shape with bold embellishment and playful details. The distinctive canvas mini-bag is defined by a mischievous fox head closure, a symbolic new motif for Spring/Summer 2017. Elsewhere, bamboo and leather handles are punked-up with studded pearls, while a multi-coloured appliqué lobster stretches out in style. Bravo Gucci, bravo.
