Have you ever wondered what you should be bringing in your handbags? Or having difficulty editing your essentials down to the bare minimum? You’re not alone, that happens to us too. With Handbag Edits, we show you what you can throw into different bags of different sizes. We also have celebrities and personalities share their bag must-haves and current favorites.
If you’re a fan of the Givenchy bags by Riccardo Tisci which became pretty much street-style staples from 2008 to 2015, then you might go gaga over Tisci’s new bag with Burberry. With the designer’s debut with the brand, comes a new handbag design which could potentially have the same cult following.
Called the TB bag (for Thomas Burberry), the structured leather bag comes in four versions: small, large, belt bag, and envelope clutch. It’s available in classic shades like camel, burgundy, and black, as well as hand-painted ones in black-and-white, and my personal favorite, pale blue and red. Perfect for summer, it has contrasting painted edges and can be worn on the shoulder, across the body, or carried as a clutch. Like the rest of the collection, it features the new monogram designed by Tisci with Peter Saville.
It may be small and compact, but it can still fit your everyday staples, and especially, ones you’ll need in the tropical season.
