19th November 2013 | Posted in Womens & Brands by H. Simpson
Buying gifts is always hard, especially at this time of year as there's always that added pressure of buying that perfect gift for your loved ones. Christmas songs are playing, the shops are decorated with pretty lit up trees and it seems there's that constant, subtle reminder everywhere you go. So what do you buy? are giving you a helping hand this year, by offering some helpful tips for gift ideas such as that bag, purse or fragrance to name just a few.
Designer accessories have once again become the height of popularity due to the ongoing fascination of 'the celebrity'. For women in particular, flicking through the pages of their favourite magazine and taking note of what celebrities are wearing themselves has become somewhat of a common occurrence. Hanging on the arm of most A listers is that trusty designer handbag.

Michael Kors

Michael Kors began life as a child actor before turning his attentions to the fashion world. Since his many appearances on TV show Project Runway, Michael Kors has been thrust into the limelight and this year has seen a bigger interest in the brand, creating a mass trend. Known for his simple and sleek designs with little or no detailing, the range has been built upon the idea that the collection will never become dated, and so in that way, the result is that the bags will become classics. This year the designer bag to be seen with is the Michael Kors, so feast your eyes upon these sophisticated, fancy-free classics.

If ever there was a great example of this, it would be the Selma Satchel. A bag that will go with everything and with a choice of two handles (one long, one short), the simplicity of the bag enables the branding on the front to be more of a statement feature as this is the only embellishment it consists of. For a more adventurous but still understated look, the Selma also comes in red.

Making sure that no detailing is added that will become dated, the Hamilton has gold coloured metal hardware on the front to form a 'padlocked luggage' look. Many other designer bags that have since become classics, have used this padlock effect, for example the Chloe 'Paddington' bag. The bag also features a leather 'luggage label' feature that holds a pretend key inside giving it a fun, playful feel for such a classic look bag. The leather has also been coated in a finish to make it easier to be cleaned and to fight off those scrapes and marks that leather usually undertakes. The phone case can be used for a number of functions for example as a smaller purse or as a card holder and offers a strap feature to wrap around the wrist.

The Chain Shoulder Tote Bag is a less formal bag as opposed to the rest of the collection. The leather has not been coated in a finish so any marks that appear will be added to the character and style of the bag creating a distressed look. The tan coloured version to this would look even more authentic with that typical leather marking. The gold chain strap and the gold 'MK' decor are enough to keep the bag looking simple and smart but with added contrasting colours to enable the bag to be eye -catching at the same time. The matching purse is also made from the same soft leather creating a perfect combination.

Using the same 'luggage' style as the Hamilton, only much longer length wise, this statement bag (due to it's striking look), is a tan colour which is a great alternative to the standard black and a warmer winter colour. Most leather items such as boots and bags come in a choice of two main colours; black or tan and so it all depends on preference and how eye-catching you want the bag to be. Wear an all black ensemble with a tan coloured bag to show it off to it's full potential.

Modalu London

Modalu London hit the big time when Kate Middleton's sister Pippa was seen 'out and about' with her trusty arm candy; the Modalu London Bristol Bag. In fact she was seen using this bag so much that the brand decided to scrap the 'Bristol' name and replace it with the 'Pippa'. They say flattery goes a long way and this proved true as since then, Pippa has been seen with just about every shade and texture the now famous bag has progressed to. These new and updated colours have been sourced from all over the world to capture that unique yet on trend look. Small detailing has been hand-crafted to give extra precision and care into each bag proving that quality comes first.

This collection of black Modalu bags are all individually different. The standard Pippa bag has been updated with a new colour-way with the royal blue and black combination whereas the Lara is a completely different format of bag altogether, with the long strap creating a cross body style for a more casual feel. Similar to the Michael Kors Hamilton, the Lara bag has a luggage tag feature showing this to be a big trend right now. Team each of these with a black purse whether it be the standard Pippa or with a 'croc' effect for something a little different.
