The Structured Satchel



This season the must buy bag is the structured satchel which is both polished and chic, practical and versatile.  These double handled bags also have a long shoulder strap for added versatility. These bags tick all the boxes that make a timeless classic:

1) Givenchy Antigona – this bag needs no introduction and just gets stronger each season with new animations and details:


Available in Small, Medium and large.  Prices start at $1,995 for the small…..

2) YSL CHYC Cabas in the Mini – this is the only size in the CHYC cabas family with a strap.  But don’t let the name fool you, the mini isn’t mini at all, it is a generous size that will easily fit all your essentials.   Available in the softer Ranch leather ($2,195) or the firm “Mini Tweed” version ($2,250) this bag is definitely very chic and will take you from day through to easily easily.  It is really perfect size. You can’t go wrong with this one.


Currently available in Mouse(grey) and black mini tweed.

3) Alexander Wang Jamie.  Introduced the this season, we predict a winner.  A polished style with the Wang edge, this bag is perfect for the girl that doesn’t like to try too hard.  It is a comparatively light bag and so for all the girls that have complained about the heaviness of the studded bags this is the one you need to try.  Prices start at $1070


4) Alexander Wang Pelican.  Another hit from the new FW12 season.  This sleek  carryall is sophisticated and timelessly chic. $1,148
