Jimmy Choo – Lockett Petite / Mulberry – Bayswater quilted bag / Chloé – Nile bag with charm (coming soon) – all exclusive to Selfridges

I will always be beholden to my vintage Vuitton tote, that has been everywhere with me over the years. But this bag is in a league of its own: the Floyd Mayweather and the Cristiano Ronaldo of cool handbags.

Louis Vuitton – limited-edition Twist MM bag / Dior – limited-edition Lady Dior Tarot cruise bag (both available at Selfridges London)

Insider pick: Pandora Sykes

“What makes the brown on brown of Louis Vuitton’s iconic logoed leather so damn good? Is it heightened by the patent luxury of a solid, polished logo? I have long been taken by Louis Vuitton’s Twist bag, in its myriad shades. The bonus of this limited-edition Twist MM is that not only does it have that hefty twist lock logo, the delicate gold chain and the achingly iconic LV logo design, but it also has an explosion of playful colours, giving it a youthful note. I will always be beholden to my vintage Vuitton tote that has been everywhere with me over the years. But this bag is in a league of its own: the Floyd Mayweather and the Cristiano Ronaldo of cool handbags. Enough said. I’m sold.”
