The Duffel Bag; this year’s most wanted leather handbag!

Bucket bags, duffel bags and drawstring bags are this year’s most wanted leather handbags and it’s easy to see why. Paraded up and down just about every catwalk from Milan to Melbourne, these adorable duffel bags come in a whole range of designs to fit the fashion trend of your dreams. Whip-stitching brings a flavour of the country and western style whilst slashed and slouchy gives an urban twist. Shiny metal zips and menacing studs take on a military appeal.

Current duffel bags are light and bright for a summery sensation. Watch out especially for white, nude and pastel colours. We love Ri2k’s Large Lilly Drawstring Tote which comes in Catkin, a fabulous summery shade of yellow at just £129.95 (RRP £165) or Ri2k’s Large Jerri Drawstring Tote in Teal Green at just £149.95 (RRP £165) which is great for summer holidays as you can stash all your everyday stuff in it and still have room to spare! For a sporty or nautical look, we recommend Manzoni’s Large Tote Bag in Red or White at £79.95 (RRP £140). Also worth a special mention is Marta Ponti's Drawstring Tote Bag in smart monochrome colours White with Black trim at just £114.95 (RRP £230).

All these bags are currently available online at

As the season’s change, expect colours to take on a darker hue. Dark greys and jet blacks will take a steer towards gothic fairytale. We predict that size will decrease as the duffel bag is taken onto the dancefloor for the party season. Photo: Attire Magazine.
