Bag Lady Loves: Carven's round medium leather bag
If there's one overriding trend in handbags we've observed over the past season or so, irregular, non-standard body shape is one feature that's cropped up time and again. Carven have interpreted the mood particularly well with this rounded shoulder bag, which subtly twists a classic bag into something new - with a hint of saddle styling about it to tap into fashion's current Western leanings. Available in the universal colours of golden tan or black, it's an accessory that almost anyone could incorporate into their look.
Priced at £740 over at The Corner, the bag is a sound investment for those who rock to a slightly off-beat tune. Although it's a refreshingly simple bag in terms of its design, it has some nice hidden features: the monogrammed silver 'Carven' logo plate peeping out from the leather slot at the front is one, the subtle styling created by two layers of hard leather is another. There are internal pockets and a zip fastening for extra practicality and security.
