Ralissi Crossbody Bag, Aldo
This gorgeously quilted crossbody bag is the go-to purse of our dreams. Featuring a whimsical design and a sleek chain strap, it’s a style centrepiece.
Sofetch Handbag, Call It Spring
This faux croco handbag is a favourite for two reasons: its two-tone chain handle is too beautiful to pass up on, and it’s vegan!
Daria Small Bag, Chloé
The Daria Small bag is a structured piece designed to be carried on the shoulder or in hand in a contemporary style. Plus, we’re loving its sunny soft shade.
Roksana Large Beach Tote, Cult Gaia
Sculpted in a statement-making silhouette, this carry-all tote features smooth leather and resort-ready raffia, to channel your inner Samantha Jones.

Defined by its intricate woven detailing, this shoulder bag combines two hot runway trends this season: braided leather and bright hues.

Mini bags are everywhere (and everything) this season. This ruched style will add a big dose of bright colour to your everyday look.
