We’ve found the perfect statement bag for summer.

Spend five minutes scrolling through the cool girls of Instagram, and you’ll almost certainly come across one of Staud’s eye-catching handbags. In fact, a search for #staud brings up close to 5,000 posts – not bad for a brand that’s only three years old.

Founded in 2015 by Sarah Staudinger, the former fashion director of Reformation, Staud’s bags have been spotted on the arms of Alexa Chung, Dakota Fanning, and Leandra Medine, as well as countless fashion editors and influencers.

But it’s the brand’s quirky bags that have the fashion girls ‘gramming up a storm – especially the Moreau plant pot bag, and the cult favourite Bissett bucket bag.

If you’re mentally putting one of these babies on your wishlist as we speak, you’ll be pleased to know they’re actually rather affordable. We’re talking under Dhs1500.

We’ll have one in every style, thank you. Here’s some inspiration…
