  • Paul Smith Walnut Bag

    Who loves it:

    Paul Smith, designer

    Why he loves it:

    “This season I‘ve created three limited edition bags for spring/summer, and my favourite is the Walnut bag – it’s black leather with all over gigantic studs and a removable chain strap so it can be used as a clutch too. Each bag is numbered inside, although I know some people can be superstitious so there is no number 13 – there’s a 12.5 instead.”
