Handbags and women truly go hand in hand and we’re lucky to have some really great handbag brands here in New Zealand. Having a stylish bag can definitely make any outfit look better and there are lots of lovely choices available with prices to suit your budget.
Trends come and go for handbags as they do for clothing but there are classics like chic shoulder bags in black and neutrals or easy to carry totes that never go out of style. For a wardrobe update try a more colourful hue like pink or blue this season, while python and animal prints are also popular with some sublime options around at the moment.
Vegan leather is gaining in popularity as people look for more sustainable options. We’ve chosen some bags for this edit that are made from Pinatex which is a new leather derived from pineapples.
You’ll notice that circular styles have come back around as have refined chains and subtle details. While some may use handbags as status symbols we prefer to see them as a way to show our support for clever local designers, not to mention the best way to carry our important stuff and keep snacks on hand.
