Which Autumn/Winter 2016 Bag Are You?

From detailed, highly scientific research we've matched your personality type with key bags of the season. You're welcome.

The Valentino AW wide strap bag

There was a time in the mid-noughties when THE bag to buy was one so oversized that it could only be hauled about in the crook of an elbow.

Mischa Barton, the Olsen twins and Lindsay Lohan were regularly papped being dwarfed by them whilst juggling a Starbucks latte.

And for those who invested in the 'It' bags, it was only a matter of time before a trip to the chiropractor was required.

Thankfully, those giant bag days are done. Instead AW's designers have considered a more practical solution, presenting the full spectrum of shapes, styles and sizes.

Which one suits you?
