A simple, but cute, shape, and a bright pop of red combined to persuade us to name this River Island frame bag our Handbag of the Week. Although it’s not a carpet bag, there’s just something a bit ‘Mary Poppins’ about it – in fact, it looks like you could keep everything including the kitchen sink in there, doesn’t it? Well, OK, maybe not the kitchen sink. There’s definitely room for your wallet, phone, sunglasses, and all of the other things that tend to end up in handbags, though. (In ours? Handcuffs and tasers, to help us catch fashion criminals. And red lipstick.)
