BAGS OF FUN: WHY WE'RE ALL CUSTOMISING OUR STUFF

(Ph. Tommy Ton)

In a landscape where anyone with an internet connection and access to style.com can get their hands on the latest must-have items, and social media has made true individuality all but obsolete, personalisation is the last hope for a really unique fashion item.

Whether it's monogramming at Louis Vuitton or high street store Whistles or Anya Hindmarch's leather stickers, adorning your bag with items that make it yours is so en vogue right now it hurts.

It's so now, but also has oodles of nostalgia, did anyone else make their mark on their school bags with graffiti, stickers and charms? Obviously these grown-up accoutrements are slightly more chi-chi than the Disney keyrings of days gone by; a Fendi bag bug will set you back upwards of £500.

Whatever your budget, though, customise your sac - DIY it or go more upmarket but don't hold back. Take inspiration from the street style at Milan Fashion Week and make it personal! It might stop your handbag getting nicked...  you won't be caught in a game of sartorial snap and it will definitely make you smile.

#MICROTREND SUPER BRIGHT SAUCONY TRAINERS


I have to admit I got a bit seduced by the hole normcore/scandi wave of fashion and fully embraced neutrals and more subdued fashions, but... it gets a bit boring. So I have made a fashion-promise to myself to start introducing a bit more fun and colour into my wardrobe. I shall start with these ever so fresh Saucony kicks which you can get in a plethora of super-bright colours. They'll be big soon (that's my prediction) so hop on the bandwagon early!

#LFW LONDON FASHION WEEK ROUND-UP

The amazing set at Roksanda Ilincic by bright young thing Gary Card

ROKSANDA ILINCIC

I love, love, loved this collection - it was so bold which was a good thing because any lesser collection would have been easily overshadowed by the raised, colourful catwalk. The whole setting, in an old London leisure centre, filled with natural light, was just beautiful. Now, on to the clothes. All of the looks were true Roksanda, with nipped-in waists and longline skirts hitting mid calf, even the makeup was reminiscent of the designer, a minimal and clean red lip. It was the colours at got me though; punchy tangerine, shocking cobalt blue and hotter-than-hot pink, plus a dash of burgundy for good measure. How these shades were all mixed together without looking totally mental is beyond me, but I do know one thing. I want some fun fur in all those shades come AW15.
