If you're in the market for a new designer bag, let us introduce you to the affordable styles making waves at London Fashion Week right now. From minimalist top-handle styles perfect for work to plush velvet day-to-night iterations, LFW's impeccably dressed style set has thrown up some seriously covetable and tempting options. And they won't cost a month's rent either. Some brands you may not have heard of, while others, although not new, have released new-season options just in time for fashion month (and payday). Expect to see Danse Lente (up first), Wandler and Staud with prices starting from £375. Sound good? Bookmark (and shop) these six brands now.
Style Notes: The style set has toted this brand for the past few seasons, most notably with the Phoebe shoulder style, but this season, according to this showgoer, it's all about this chic white option.
This is your wear-with-everything option.
Style Notes: If you're not big into neutrals and are looking for something directional, try Tara Zadeh. A firm favourite with the fashion crowd, the fun styles sell out at lightening speed, which does little to dull the hype. So if you're thinking about investing, be sure to get one before they're gone.
While the red Azar clutch is currently sold out, we're into the equally chic cobalt-blue version.
Style Notes: The easiest way to wear Burberry's iconic check? On your shoulder, of course. Fashion editor Harriet Stewart was one of many street stylers swapping structured arm candy during London Fashion Week in favour of this practical (and chic) alternative.
For work or the weekend.
Style Notes: There are so many thing we're loving about this rainy-day look, but our focus is on that Staud bag. Choose velvet, tan or white—this is worth every single penny.
Just one more Staud iteration to add to the wish list.
We're styling it with a checked suit and sneakers.
