Five Black Friday handbags and how to style them


We were too excited to wait. So we’ve already launched our Black Friday offers. Including 50% off our exclusive Star Buys. From backpacks to cross body bags (and everything in between). This is your opportunity to find and invest in pieces that will last a lifetime.

So how about a little inspiration? We’ve selected five of our most versatile leather designs and put together outfit ideas to go with each one. Wardrobe advice, luxury leather handbags and unmissable savings. You can’t say we don’t treat you.

Sophistication and organisation. Two things that are guaranteed with our triple-compartment Baylis Road multiway. Crafted in soft grained leathers and available with glossy mock croc trims. So smart, it’s almost as if it’s been made for your desk-to-dinner days.

Let us show you just how effortlessly this bag can elevate an outfit. All you need is a few wardrobe staples. We’ve chosen a warm, wool coat and midi-length layers, all in neutral colours. Then, slip on Baylis Road with the cross body strap or carry at your side. It’s as simple as that. Now you’re ready for a day at the office followed by an evening of catch-ups and cocktails.

Ice skating outside the Natural History Museum. Visiting Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. It’s the season for all of our favourite festive activities. And if there’s one thing every busy social schedule needs, it’s a practical bag. Something like the take-me-everywhere Essex Road backpack in textured leather.

We’ve paired it with the jacket of the moment. A soft and comfy grey shacket. The combination of these two timeless colours mean this is an outfit that you can rely on time and time again. (We’re talking about next year. And the year after that. And the one after that.)

In case you haven’t heard, tote bags are in. And in rich key shades like Merlot. So whether you’re back-in-business with daily commutes or you always like to look smart and sophisticated, a shape like the Millbank tote is perfect for investing in now.

One way to style this smooth leather tote is with more of the same. Surprise, we’re obsessed with leather. It also happens to be the texture of the season. We’ve gone with a ‘90s leather suit jacket but faux-leather trousers would also fit the bill. And don’t forget to break up your textures with something a little different. Layering in a fluffy jumper. Wrapping up in an oversized scarf. The choice is yours.

There’s nothing more classic than a cross body. There’s a few reasons why they’re so popular and one is how it keeps your hands-free. Window shopping turning into a full shopping spree? No problem. Need another coffee while completing the school run? You’ve got this. It’s a bag that makes life simple. So styling it is pretty easy too.

We’ve gone for mixed texture neutrals. (You can never go wrong with shades of cream, white, beige and brown.) A fluffy knit, a silky skirt and a grained leather Maddox Street cross body bag. Now you’re ready for whatever the day throws at you.

At first, the Essex Road backpack looks like the perfect mini bag for an afternoon of Christmas shopping. But it’s so much more. See those straps? They unclip to convert this shape into a cross body. So really, it’s a versatile day-and-night style. Maybe you can stop off for that festive mulled wine on the way home after all.

You can always clutch it via the top handle too. Just like our model here. Who’s proving how good this bag can look when paired with your favourite denim and a smart-casual trench coat in timeless shades of Black and Ink. It’s that finishing touch that helps every outfit look completely effortlessness.

Keep an eye on our website for all of our Black Friday savings. Including 50% off these exclusive Star Buys. (We’ll be bringing you to 50% off other selected handbags and accessories too.) Or for more about our latest designs, including our Home for Christmas collection, head over to our The Blog.
