OK, so moving swiftly on to part two of our street stalking activities in association with Kenco Millicano!
Regular readers of MFL will know that we’ve been hunting out the most stylish handbags in London all in the name of instant coffee. Oh yes, we do have tough job! *wink wink*
If you haven’t already heard, Kenco Millicano has revolutionised the concept of “coffee on the go” with the latest addition to their family titled “stick packs”. What exactly is a stick pack I hear you cry? Well it’s a cute box of ten individually wrapped servings that fit neatly into your handbag allowing even the busiest of women to indulge in a cup of coffee whenever they need a quick pick me up!
Naturally we’ve had a pack in our trusted Mulberry while roaming the streets in this dreadfully cold weather and it’s been perfect for keeping us awake and on the ball.
Part 1 saw us doing the rounds in Carnaby Street and for our second instalment we moved on to Convent Garden. Despite the horrendous weather (did we already mention this) we were lucky enough to find a number of very willing ladies (who we must say a big thank you to!) whom were kind enough to let us obsess over their bags.
Alright now on to our findings…
It’s very true that the handbag says a lot about the wearer. Busy women who need a lot from their bag were prone to the over-sized bag which we’ve seen in abundance. Just like Carnaby Street brown and black bags were super popular. We don’t see this trend fading anytime soon. The more stylish the outfit the more stylish the bag – case in point the lady in the image at the start of the post with the fab faux fur coat.
The most interesting item we found in a bag? Mario Puzo’s novel, The Godfather…..spotted in a lush tan rucksack.
But it was the animal print shoulder bag that really caught our eye. See the last pic in the post.
Stay tuned for part three. We’re now off to scoff a Danish with our Kenco Millicano!
