For a kitsch bit of arm-candy, look no further than the 1950s-inspired delights of Collectif's Debbie Patent cherry bag.
Collectif are known for retro-inspired wares and for this one they've pulled out the stops to give maximum vintage appeal at a high street price. The bag is made from vinyl – pick from either white or black – complemented by a marbled Lucite-style plastic handle with a cherry appliqué detail.
It's practical too: at 31cm wide, there's more than enough room for a powder compact, lipstick as well as all the trappings of contemporary life. It closes with a zip, with two further zipped compartments inside, and also comes with a shoulder strap, just in case you want to keep your hands free for dancing, or similar 50s-style activities.
The bag is priced at £54.50.
