It's becoming increasingly problematic for me and my bank account to keep track of the latest mini It bags: There's something just so annoyingly, temptingly cute about them. As someone who prefers to not lug the kitchen sink around, I cannot resist. There's another newbie style pitching to join the existing pack and sit alongside a little white satchel from Wandler, a green rattan number from Wicker Wings, a small red box bag from Manu Atelier, a host of vintage beaded styles, a tan bucket from Staud… you get the idea.
Over the summer, and most prominently during the recent fashion week schedules in Stockholm and Copenhagen, we've seen the simple Victorian-inspired pouch bag coming to the fore. Made over and modernised by Ganni (think brighter colours, bold beadwork), these teeny tiny drawstring bags in great volumes are drawing the attention of Scandi girls. The cult brand, of course, leads the charge, but other brands are part of the pack: Attico has been known for its fancy evening versions for some time, Les Petits Joueurs does some of the most luxe around, Cult Gaia is nodding towards the movement while Jacquemus in on board with leather versions. Me? I'll probably hit up Etsy for something vintage as this style is so retro. If you want the fast-track, try out one of my favourite pouch bags to shop below.
