I love the inviting warmth of brown shades, from the delicious tan to the sensual chestnut and although I understand the need for having a black bag (or two), I will always be a brown leather kind of girl in my heart.
This season I felt spoilt for choice - the brown bags reigned and added a touch of chic to so many ready-to-wear collections that, frankly, I lost count.
It is such a universal and easy to carry colour! It highlights the pastels, brights the best out of the darker shades of chocolate, warms the olive tones and compliments the sensuality of a classic red hue. Those brown bags would also look so beautiful with the seasons best camel, navy and grey coats.
