I’m really struggling to find a new bag.
This is not groundbreaking and not important. I feel vacuous even saying it. But I would quite like to know where I stand in the ‘bag market’.
I am not ‘fashion’ enough for a PS1, not Kings Road enough for an Anya Hindmarch and am repelled by ubiquity so that rules out Mulberry et al. So where to turn? And all without forking out an eye-watering amount (especially as I know that all of my handbags will inevitably be filled with crumbs and pens that have lost their lids, no matter how hard I try to keep things nice).
The above snap was surreptitiously taken in Selfridges when I realised that the Sandro bag sitting on the shelf is the closest thing I’ve seen to the right bag – discreet, roomy, leather.. maybe there’s hope yet?
