Handbag of the Week: Belen Echandia’s ‘Hug Me’ mini in purple


As Fashion Police HQ is based in Scotland, we’re always thrilled to see designers choosing to sell their wares north of the border. The latest to set up shop in the frozen north is handbag label Belen Echandia, which is now available at COVET, the designer handbag and accessories boutique on Thistle St, Edinburgh.

Pictured is the label’s ‘Hug Me’ mini, which retails for £450 and, true to its name, has a slouchy style that makes you want to pick it up and hug it. This is also available in black, but we love our metallics, so we like this soft, shiny purple…

    I love the shiny metalic purple color. It’s really a lovely bag, shame I can’t afford it 🙁

    Absolutely stunning, but a bit on the expensive side
