The World’s Top Bags and the Women Carrying Them

Camridge Satchel

There was a time, not too long ago, when the only chance you’d have to see your favourite ‘It’ bag in action was when it’d be casually dangling off your favourite celebrity’s arm as she ran errands in her skinny jeans and perfect blowout. But ever since the dawn of the Street Style revolution, the hottest bags are suddenly everywhere.
