Gone are the times when women were carrying half of their belongings in over-sized and extremely heavy bags.

Their colours and decorations make them a statement piece and a great twist for the simplest outfit. Even trainers are going sparkly-glam, so that you don’t need to compromise style in favour of comfort.
