Arm Candy–The White Bag–14 of the best by DKNY, Mulberry, Reiss, Diane von Furstenberg etc.
Where does a white bag get you? Do you take it everywhere from town to country? Do you travel with one? Do you worry about the fact that, certainly in the UK at least, you may end up getting yours wet in a sudden downpour? All of those things come into my mind when I look at the white handbag in my cupboard, pristine and never carried on my arm, beautiful though it is and bought some while ago.
Almost certainly more suited to the South of France, the white bag is still a chic fashion statement working a look with a sun dress or cropped jeans.
The white bags around this summer, from DKNY’s crop printed tote, my favourite from a price/size/style point of view to the Mulberry Alexa in antique white have a relaxed feel with most offering enough room for just about everything you might want to take on the plane down to Nice. From bright white to ever so slightly off-white (and maybe easier to wear), from the very reasonably priced to the sky high. Over to you.
The off white elegant utility designer bag – instantly recognisable………..
Or the textured, floral appliqued punched hole bag with cross-body strap and shoulder/grab handle……
Zipped, fringed or chain strapped – the details make the bag…………
The unadorned over shoulder white bag – this one you can take everywhere.
By the way the small punched bag by Lulu Guinness has sold out just about everywhere – so order yours quick from Coggles if you want it. Today in fact…………
