The bum bag’s had a grown up make over…
Forget everything you thought you knew about bum bags – no longer are they just a staple for tourists. Instead the simple satchel is now a high fashion must-have, and an item you’ll see springing up on the high street this summer.
The surprising trend was featured in Fenty X Puma and House of Holland’s bold spring/summer 2018 collections, but its sophisticated sister, the belt bag, was also found on the catwalk of Gucci and Valentino as well.
Grab one of these new, grown-up styles for a summer wardrobe refresh. Think structured purses complete with luxe leather and delicate straps for a new twist on hands-free accessorising.
