The best hunted accessories are not those which bow submissively to seasonal trends and limit their purpose in life post spring/summer, autumn/winter whatever, but in fact, those which catch your attention enough to stop you dead in your tracks.
OK, maybe the ‘stopping dead in your tracks’ bit is a little overdone, but we can honestly say we stopped dead in our (virtual) tracks when we spotted the Chloé Madeleine Bowling Bag.
In all its oil-slick, patent glory, we love the eye-catching cyclamen colour (posh for a dark magenta/berry shade) – a refreshing detour from the saccharine sweet shades saturating stores this season.
Chloé; a name synonymous with practicality and stylishness delivers exactly this in equally copious measures, as the Madeleine boasts roomy insides with delectable gold-tone hardware, zip detail, and, above all, we love the re-introduction of a patent accessory into our wardrobes for spring/summer.
Adopt the berry-coloured beauty as your latest fashion child, and let the serial head turning and envious staring begin!
Chloé Madeleine Leather Bowling Bag, £1,550, available at Harrods
