Need to buy a new handbag or update a well-worn favourite? You can't go past a classic camel bag
Okay, so it's more caramel than camel and it's an Hermès Birkin!
But it is the ultimate classic handbag and a true fashion investment.

PERFECT for winter or summer, the neutral tone will work with everything in your wardrobe. Look for elegant clean lines as fussy or on-trend hardware treatments will date immediately. And always buy the best quality you can afford as a great handbag will give you a great return on your cost per wear ratio.
And while you're at it, look for matching or co-ordinating leather loafers, ballet flats or heels as they will complete your look providing you with endless possibilities. Trust me, you won't be sorry!
- To keep clean, it's best to use a cream leather cleaner and conditioner, both of which are available from shoe repair shops.
