I want to buy a new bag but unsure which ones are the best? I currently have a radley but fancy a change. Any ideas?

I'm not into obviously 'branded' bags and got a nice bag from whistles. Was told by sales person made by same people as mulberry hmmnot sure if true! and not why I bought it! Has lasted well and good leather.

Sorry you asked for brands! I like Michael kors

mintoil Mon 28-Dec-15 23:09:45

My cat bought me a lovely Michael Kors bag for Christmas fgrin

Arcadia Mon 28-Dec-15 23:26:35

Blimey mintoil my DP needs lessons from your cat, I got a pair of socks from him!

I really don't love Michael Kors. I got a Furla hobo recently and I'd happily cuddle its buttery softness in bed <happy sigh>

I like Picard bags, but recently saw a lovely Skagen one, but it was a bit more than I would pay for a bag.

Ted Baker or DKNY for me

Tory burch do nice leather bags - you can get some bargains on the outnet
Also like aspinal of London.

Hmm confused now ha ha. I don't want a £££ brand just one that's good quality that will last and looks good. I'll check out all the ones mentioned so far, thanks peeps.

I have a Michael kors but think it's now really popular and everywhere. I got a lovely Cambridge satchel bag for Christmas? Would recommend having a look

Twinkie1 Tue 29-Dec-15 07:23:23

All Saints or Whistles

River Island for me, always loved them, but I'm not grown up enough for any proper designers blush

annielostit Tue 29-Dec-15 07:54:51

I like radley, a few ££ than usual but not as much as 'designer'..

Leviticus Tue 29-Dec-15 09:42:01

YY Whistles and also Jigsaw.

ooh yes I have a Cambridge satchel too in electric blue and it is lovely, but a bit small for everyday use. I lug a lot of stuff around with me and prefer something slightly larger.

Would like a Radley purse puts on Christmas list for next year, cat

I like Coach bags. ££ but not £££ price wise.

louise987 Tue 29-Dec-15 18:11:12

I second Coach. Fab quality, very stylish and not overly pricey. It's also nice that they aren't as popular as obviously branded bags like MK

Indecisivejo Tue 29-Dec-15 18:17:15

What's your idea of not overly pricey? Just looked online and ones I saw were over £200!! That's Out of my price range! sad

TheSpottedZebra Tue 29-Dec-15 18:20:05

But 'best brand' could mean anything!

Could you be more specific about what you're looking for - budget, what kind of bag (ie how big, shoulder strap or not...) etc?

amarmai Tue 29-Dec-15 18:25:03

I 3rd coach- great selection, quality, detailing, and price is reasonable for what you get.

KissMyFatArse Tue 29-Dec-15 19:29:01

I don't work for Cambridge satchel btw but they have a sale on! My bag is £40 cheaper than before Christmas! Have a swatch santa

Cellardoor1 Wed 30-Dec-15 03:36:04

Yes, coach! I got my first coach bag earlier this year and now own five grin. I may be slightly obsessed.

They are streets ahead of Michael kors in terms of quality, and not so ubiquitous

Indecisivejo Wed 30-Dec-15 07:40:57

I want a large handbag with small straps I can hold but also a bigger one I can put over shoulder. Needs to be roomy with few compartments. Budget I would say no more than £70!
Am very upset as saw a lovely fiorelli one yest in sale and was meant to go back for it after I'd looked around but as was so chaotic out and was exhausted I forgot blushsad

Quickchangeup Wed 30-Dec-15 07:50:01

Have a look on the fiorelli website for the bag you saw OP. Carvela do some nice bags, a friend has a lovely one but I can't comment on quality. TK maxx usually have a good selection. I've had two really nice bags I've bought in the clarks sale over the past two years so that may be worth a look.
