Ladies, I’m afraid we may have to embark upon that most postponed of tasks: clearing out the handbag.
Bags in transparent materials were all over the spring summer 2013 catwalks and they’re completely incompatible with the contents of most of my bags: ancient receipts, fluff, chocolate bar wrappers… you know the things.
This trend means the contents of your bag are about to become as important as the bag itself. So to carry it off it’s probably going to be best to clear out the clutter and store most of your necessities in a pretty pouch that fits inside.
It’s got me wishing I’d listened harder in school design and technology classes when they tried to teach us how to mould perspex. But nonetheless I reckon a bag in this style would be quite easy to DIY using clear PVC.

I especially love the Valentino bag with nude leather studded trim.
Do you like this trend too or do you think it’s a sure fire way to attract a mugger?!
