Geometric bags are the ultimate way to make a style statement for autumn/winter ‘18. Having been spotted on the catwalks at the international collections for a couple of seasons now, they have officially progressed beyond novelty. From circles and triangles to cubes and even hexagons – it’s time to think outside the box.

Kurt Geiger Harriet Bag

As chosen by Kitty McGee, Executive Fashion Director

“Hands-free cross-body bags are my go-to for everyday. This circular style may not be as big as a tote but the structured shape means it’s roomy enough for everything I need.”

Balenciaga Black Triangle Clutch

As chosen by Billie Bhatia, Fashion Writer

“The Balenciaga Triangle pioneered this trend and is still the original and best. Not the most practical but roomier than you might expect. Just make sure you keep it dressed down; it’s the ultimate in effortless cool.”

Danse Lente mini bucket bag

Chosen by Arabella Greenhill, Fashion Director

“Colourful or neutral accessories really help to lift wintry outfits. This Danse Lente bucket bag is the perfect daytime bag – it will look as good with tailored trousers and a cosy cashmere roll-neck as it will with a printed midi dress.”

French Connection Fifi cross-body bag 


Chosen by Helen Atkin, Fashion Assistant

“This bag from French Connection ticks all the boxes. Not only does it tap into this season’s geometric trend, but it’s made from recycled leather and comes with a practical cross-body strap.”

Tara Zadeh Azar Suede Clutch

Chosen by Polly Knight, Fashion Editor

“A bright clutch is a great way to lift my monochrome wardrobe – plus, yellow is the colour of the moment and Tara Zadeh is definitely a designer to watch, so this bag is definitely on my autumn wish-list.”
