Shapes were old fashioned, with both vintage ladylike styles and 90s rectangles.
Colourful leather and silver hardware kept things looking more 21st Century - that and the new way they were slung over shoulder like a backpack.
Purple ladylike handbag
Clip fastening will forever have old fashion connotations, but the purple leather keeps this looking fresh.
Yellow mini handbag
This shape reminds us a little of the classic Fendi Baguette and instantly takes us to a 90s place. We love the bright yellow.
Red satin handbag
Another clip fastening and this time the bag is satin! Grandma may want to borrow it, but she may have to get in line.
quilted ladylike handbag
We love a bit of quilted leather and in black this bag looks like it would fit right into any wardrobe. Just like that.
Black leather handbag
This one seemed the most 90s, would go well with an old Calvin Klein dress kind of bag.
