Is it just me or have you all noticed that leather is no longer the It material for bags? Last season we had many designers turn to canvas for their ultra-luxury totes (think Lanvin with prices of £450 and up), and this season we are witnessing rubber revolution (well, not just rubber but plastics and perspex too).
The idea is very utilitarian – rubber bags are durable, easy to clean and as in case of clutches provide perfect grip(don’t take the latter point too seriously). But of course there is more to it – rubber begs to be highly colourful, and with colour being a major trend of the season, who can say no to bright and candy-like bags on the pictures above? They are:
- Michael by Michael Kors Jet Set Jelly Tote, £130
- Anya Hindmarch Nevis Colour-Block Rubber Tote, £295
- Anya Hindmarch Valorie Matte Clutch, £250
And if you are on the budget, as always Asos has the answer: frosted perspex clutches on the picture below are £18 each and are large enough to fit all your necessities for the day plus will provide the needed burst of colour to your outfit.
