While the words ’shoulder’ and ‘bag’ together conjure up images of mid 1980s soccer moms scampering to games with big hair and even bigger glasses, I was refreshingly delighted by these super Fall 07 — post 1980s — chic shoulder bags.
I dig Dior, as usual – the man of my dreams, creating a subtle metallic, quilted, GOLD lambskin bag. With comfy flat shoulder straps and eye-catching grommets, this bag is a sure hit.

Mirror, mirror on the wall — who’s the goldest of them all? Fendi’s sharp styling — read, inverted pleats and contrast stitching — highlight this bag’s classic shape.

More tote than shoulder bag, more snake than lamb – this Just Cavalli creation is metallic through and through, complete with bronze colouring and gold hardware. Topped off with a luxurious lining, you’ll be prepared for whatever the — lipstick — jungle throws at you.
