Among the satchels and Chanel-a-likes, current designers can often forget the myriad of other retro influences available to them in bag design. Tapping into something a little less seen, this Sophie Messenger Bag from Marc by Marc Jacobs is a cute little piece that will last through many seasons to come.
It's appeal comes from a sweet simplicity, with a bubbly and rounded messenger shape creating a borderline kitschy feeling. In a stone grey leather, the gold hardware keeps the colour palette classic and timeless. With a simple rounded handle to finish, this is the sort of handbag you'll be wearing with everything.
