In London UK this weekend, it’s very difficult to think about the brighter and warmer days of spring and summer coming soon. We’ve got Storm Dennis howling winds and rain mixed with designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Christopher Kane, Rejina Pyo showing their AW’20 collections at London Fashion Week. However I will not be deterred from my mission of rounding up some of the best fashion bags, all for under £100.
If you’ve had the chance to peruse Esquire, GQ or Vogue you’ll know that splashes of colour were front and centre on the men’s SS’20 runways.

But as the clue is in the website title, Bagwhispers, I’m all about the bags; what will the guys be carrying this spring/summer? Continue reading “Men NOT in black! Fashion trends for men for SS’20”

AND this stands true when I exclude the teenage girls with their Fjällräven packs and the ever popular Longchamp Le Pliage nylon backpacks. Here are 10 different backpack styles.
Workin’ 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin’, so sang Dolly. Most of us have to and will head to an office 5 days a week to earn our living.
