The Staple: Wandler Luna
One of the most spotted bags at Copenhagen Fashion Week, the Wandler Luna is a contemporary classic that you’ll want in every colour and texture. Created by Elza Wandler and based in Amsterdam, her bags have quickly become the influencer’s bag of choice. Minimalist and elegant, the Luna is the perfect everyday city bag that embraces modern.

The Showstopper: Fendi Mania Baguette
The bag that attracted waiting lists is back! First released in 1997, the Fendi Baguette bag is one of the most successful handbags of all time. Relaunched as part of the Fendi Mania capsule with Fila, the bag that was designed to be ‘minimal and functional’ has had a bold makeover in a bright white, red and blue colourway, all over logo and added fringing. The Baguette bag was designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi, who works alongside the brands current creative director Karl Lagerfeld. Designed in the late nineties, this small pochette fits snuggly under your arm, freeing your hands to get on with more important things.

A sparkling spherical masterpiece, the Marzook Swarovski Sphere bag was created by brother/sister duo, Fahad and Shouq Al-Marzook. Based in Kuwait, these Instagram-able bags have graced the shoulders of many a millennial trailblazer and have swiftly become the ultimate party piece.
