Faith is 50: Bang-on trend bags

Our deep-seated need for a good statement bag is no fluke. The feel of buttery soft leather, the eye-catching polish of the gold hardware, the feeling you get from strewing it around on your arm – it’s a friend to to weather life’s storms with – and a foolproof way to elevate your outfit. To commemorate British fashion brand Faith’s 50th, we look at which bags are likely to be your new BFF in the coming season. 

That is a backpack you see. The trend has been hot for some time this year, but if you still haven’t warmed up to it and you think ‘sophisticated backpack’ is an oxymoron, you’re not alone. Yours truly can count the times she’s worn a backpack in her life and has (creatively) managed to avoid doing so all through school. But sophisticated it is – thanks to the good people at Louis Vuitton, Mulberry and Alexander Wang, who rolled out models in pristine ready-to-wear with leather backpacks. The high street promptly followed, and we’re all eager to get our hands on Faith’s black quilted backpack (top left) and grey and  black ribbed quilted versions.  Similarly, the bucket bag such as this duffle version by Faith is a cool alternative option for this casual-luxe accessories trend.

Yet if you’re a bonafide tote gal – and prefer your bag where you can see it – there’s good news. The accessory staple, reinvented each season in sturdy, square, roomy statement designs, is here to stay. For a ladylike statement, opt for a cream-coloured tote like Ariana Grande’s and wear it with a casual outfit for contrast. A neutral grey tote like Lucy Mecklenburgh is perfect for offsetting colour-pop coats or dresses, while a royal blue bag like Miranda Kerr’s is eye-catching yet elegant. Then of course, you can’t go wrong with a black mock-crock as OP does in her perfect city-girl outfit.
