Spring clean your handbag for a zen-like start to the new decade

If there’s one accessory that ticks all the need-it-now boxes for January, it’s this cool new take on the classic Kelly bag. And if your New Year’s resolution was to stop lugging so much junk around with you, then this compact-but-roomy shape could be a godsend. It’s crafted from textured vegan leather for a luxurious matt finish, with a detachable shoulder strap and a multitude of pockets to stow your essentials securely. Team with smart separates for work or with a cashmere polo neck and wide-leg jeans for the weekend. The five colour options – from classic navy to bold burnt orange – work whatever you’re doing, while the top handles add an effortlessly polished feel, which is exactly the vibe I want to channel this year.
