Until now, Matthew Williamson has never designed an exclusive bag range, focusing more on his core clothing collection and the occasional clutch. But we've just been given a glimpse at the British designer's all-new collection of women's handbags launched today - and we're already in love! Five styles will be available in the coming capsule collection, which will come on to the market in Autumn/Winter 2013.


As you might expect from the designer whose neons, brights and travel-inspired pieces are so well known, the bags are a combination of Boho-style prints and embellishments alongside more chic, sober pieces with just a hint of his natural exuberance. Duffle bags, roomy tote bags and smart cross-body bags are all stand-out pieces of this highly wearable range of women's handbags.

Shown above, the Frida duffle bag nails the 90s-inrpied trends for the coming seasons, while the Chatsworth bag, below, combines innovative styling with ultimate practicality in an everyday wearable navy blue slouch bag:
