6 Summer Handbags
Is this bag not the perfect summer accessory? Pastel colours are a big hit right now and this cornflower blue number from Ri2k London gets it just right.
With pockets aplenty and a handy cross-shoulder strap in addition to the structured top handles, this Eden Tote is bang on trend. Banish all thoughts of the Queen Mother peoples, because her favourite shade of lilac has made a huge comeback this summer. And with it’s sleek styling and distinctive silhouette, we’re predicting the Eden Tote will be a hot fave. You read it here first!
Get yours before the Duchess of Sussex is seen clutching one! She’s already been spotted carrying the Mulberry Bayswater in porcelain blue and the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour in royal blue – so it’s only a matter of time.
Here at Muddy, we’re loving Ri2k London. The brand was launched by John Richmond, the renowned English fashion designer, back in 2000, and takes its name from Richmond – Ri – and the year 2000 – 2k. Geddit!!
But after a few quiet years, the brand is now back with a vengeance, and is worn by classy, stylish and empowering women including Pippa Middleton and, er, yours truly.
The Eden Tote is an obvious fave this season, but there are plenty of others that get our hearts racing.
We love the Evelyn Shopper – seen below in truffle (it also comes in hoody grey, black and desert) – because every girl needs a ginormous bag to cart round their stuff. And with a zip top, this one’s practical as well as super-stylish.
Multiple handbags in another big trend this summer, and the Evelyn would look fab layered with the Palmer Double Zip Crossbody. One bag for all the stuff you have to cart aroud. And another for the smaller essentials. Très chic!
Other faves that have caught our eye? The Barnsbury Tote, the Reiyn Chain Tote and the Dax Hobo. Gorgeous and affordable. I’ll take one of each!
