If I had an unlimited budget for the new season these would be the five bags I would splash my well-earned cash on. Naturally.


Bright red polished calf Primrose Dhs6,840 Mulberry here

“The new member of the Mulberry family is ‘It’ bag Primrose. Hold it like a lady or casually sling it across your body. Either way, this newbie is about to become icon – and hopefully a new addition to my modest yet growing bag collection.”


Jours fur Dhs22,550 Fendi here  

“Every fashion girl worth her salt will have seen Fendi’s extreme fur on the AW/13 runway. The 2Jours in neon-coated mink is definitely for the fashion brave. But totally amazing all the same.”


Lady Lock crocodile handbag Dhs93,600 Gucci here 

“Make way for the Gucci’s new Lady Lock – a beautiful design to join the AW/13 collection. I’m all over the structure, the bamboo handle, the lock and the pure elegance it exudes.”


Cabas phantom large in calfskin and suede beige POA Céline here

“Every season Pheobe Philo has me drooling over Céline’s handbag line. Not only do I want the entire Luggage Mini calfskin in every colour, I’ve fallen for the Cabas in a big way. There’s something about the über soft leather, sleek monochrome look and it’s roomy enough to fit everything I need in. Cabas you’re on the top of my wish list.”
