Come fashion week, you can expect every editor, influencer and buyer to come prepared with a great It bag. And while we always predict that plenty of heavy-hitting designer styles will make an appearance, there's an up-and-coming label you'll want to keep an eye out for, Danse Lente. The UK-based accessories label has created a line of structural, whimsical bags that have already caught the eyes of a few street style stars. From Pandora Sykes to Eva Chen, we've seen plenty around New York Fashion Week.
"I like to make things appear simple and effortless yet full of details to discover," says designer Youngwon Kim via email. "DanseLente means 'slow dance' in French … I quite simply want to bring that uplifting mood and joy of dance into our bags." For anyone on the hunt for a new statement bag, the collection ranges in price from £375 to just over £450 and is available now. Check out how Pandora and Eva have styled theirs, plus shop a few of our favourite bags.
