As practical but beautiful bags go, satchels are always a great find on the high street, and a choice with plenty of retro appeal. Branching out from the traditional leather versions, this Floral Box Bag from Topshop provides us with an unusual choice that still relies heavily on vintage inspiration.
Keeping the structured square of the satchel, along with a cross body strap and front fastening, the shape retains plenty of vintage charm. It's the fabric, though, that makes this version stand out. A vintage-look floral on waterproofed polyester combines well with the burnished gold colour of the fastenings to create an antiqued aesthetic.
It's available now from Topshop for £28.
