Embrace these cool hems for work, weekend or play
Bag To Differ
While everyone else is going the structured leather bag route, Strathberry opts for something a little softer to the touch. The brand, which is a favourite of Meghan Markle, introduces its newest East/ West Stylist handbag. The bag’s unstructured form is a first for the brand, and yet retains signature Strathberry elements such as the bar detail in the front and a gold chain strap that you can use as a shoulder sling or a crossbody bag. And with the lightweight leather inner compartment, you won’t feel bogged down by your bag.
