About man bags and other accoutrements





Even though I confess to having an All Saints leather jacket I’m not really an All Saints kind of girl. I dunno, all that deconstructed jersey and faux rock chick styling just seems a bit over-played. But I have to eat my words when it comes to their menswear. Not menswear for guys you understand, I mean menswear for ME! My first must-have from their autumn winter preview had to be the wallets – I have a bit of a fetish for those credit-card holders on a lanyard and these are nicely understated. Then there are the mens scarves. I’m talking grey/black silk leopard print, black silk with tiny lime hearts, cerise silk squares with red piping. Yes, these are all mens! And don’t even get me started on the man bags – fabulous totes in nylon and leather – nicely sized but not too ‘statement’. Then there are the thin sloppy joe tshirts and stripy vests – just the right cut for a boy-girl fit to go with jeans and cowboy boots Kirsten Dunst/Johnny Borrell style.

Actually, there were some winning womenswear looks. Namely the necklaces which will look good worn on their own or tangled up together and the denim corset dress (which is nowhere near as chavvy as it sounds). Thanks to the generous £100 voucher press gift I can indulge in some of these when they hit the shops later in the year.

    When it comes to menswear, I am a sucker for old fashioned doctor’s bags. I was reading something in TeenVogue a long time ago that had a website where you could buy them for less than $100, but I have no idea now…
