Every chic sophisticate with a full to brimming diary of social engagements requires a small, but perfectly formed party bag. But that very same bag must be BIG on function too.
Our Taylor and Jackson accessory stylists have selected their favourite bags against a strict ‘style and substance’ criteria, assessing for clutchability, usability and wearability. They must look equally good on your shoulder, in your hand and crossbody as they do on the dancefloor, should you decide to shake your booty around them, and - like your dress - fit your essentials without a single bulge.
Shine like a star!
What party outfit would be complete without a silver clutch bag? This divine Sally Laminato bag is made from super-soft leather and comes with a strap that can be easily detached, adjusted or even simply tucked inside. You and it will shine like a star on the dancefloor and the great thing about silver bags – if you couple with silver jewellery they go with any outfit.
There’s nothing so eye-catching as a red outfit and the same is true of a red bag – especially when it has a gold chain strap and clasp. Perfect for Christmas with its festive colourway, this appropriately named Fiesta clutch bag forms part of our flagship Barada designer bag range and also comes in aqua green.
