Samantha Cameron tests our theory

Two jags? Meet three bags

Samantha Cameron has taken Victoria Coren’s two-bag theory (read it in the October issue of ELLE), and raised her a bag.

Yesterday, the Smythson creative consultant was spotted doing the school run carrying not one, not two, but three Smythson beauties: the Tall Tote and Tote from the label’s Chameleon collection, at £595 each, along with the £495 Crossbody Clutch in Dove Grey.

‘The holdall self is opened up for close friends and life partners, with all its tears and fears, half-eaten mints and broken biros. (Although, if we have any sense, even that’s not visible all the time.)’

Take heart, ladies: Mr Cameron might make his own artisanal bread, but his wife is as prone to disorganisation as the rest of us.
