Four of the Best New Season Handbags by Under-the-Radar Designers

Are you bored of seeing the same designer handbags hanging from the arms of every fashionista? I have nothing against ‘It’ bags or the classics (if someone wanted to give me a Pashli or 2.55 I’d be a very happy girl), but recently I’ve been desperate to see something new and different. For Spring/Summer 2013 it’s all about mini, over-the-shoulder handbags, and the very best designs happen to come from under-the-radar designers. Yippee! Take a look at my four favourites…

Shop the Edit: 1. Loeffler Randall’s mint green snakeskin bag // 2. Shourouk’s bubble-gum pink jewellery bag // 3. Kzeniya’s leather and perspex satchel // 4. Opening Ceremony’s aqua over-the-shoulder bag

Granted, you can’t really call Opening Ceremony “under-the-radar”, but I don’t know anyone who owns an OC handbag (or if I do it’s not obvious), so I think it their aqua satchel deserves a place on this list. The dinky little design is a great day-to-night option and I love the fact it’s exactly the same shade as the Twitter bird!

The crystal embellished Shourouk design is my absolute favourite, though. It’s so blingy you won’t need to bother with jewellery, and it’s sure to get people complimenting you constantly. Just remember not reveal who it’s buy, as we need to make sure these handbags remain our little secret…

  • It is so refreshing to see these gorgeous bags coming from under-the-radar designers, as opposed to the big brands/designers! I’m with you on Shourouk’s bag-love it!

  • Oh I adore that pink one. That is absolutely gorgeous.

    I’m for numbers 3 and 4! We need to see more on under the radar designers!

  • The Shourouk bag is my favourite as well! If anyone wanted to gift me that, I really wouldn’t mind… 😉
