We’re throwing it back to New York Fashion Week in honour of the sensational style spotted on the streets and catwalks of NYC a little over a month ago.

This time we’re particularly taken by the handbags and regardless of the size, each one has left a notable impression. 


Hands-free! Sometimes that’s all you need, and it’s no wonder attachment bags are winning as the trendiest bags of the season. All hail to backpacks, waist bags and miniature bags that effortlessly latch to your arm or hand while you go about your everyday business.
