Sometimes, all you need is a statement bag overflowing with adorable details to instantly brighten your day!


Small handbags, work cases, roomy totes, formal clutches – no matter the preference in bags, one will always need that special statement bag in their life.

Enhanced by a quirky detail or design, a pop of colour or a unique pattern; a cute bag almost always induces gushes of admiration all around and makes for excellent conversation starters!

We’re kicking off the New Year with cute bags that beg our approval as arm candy.

A diminutive size makes it the ideal lightweight companion to tote your valuables around, and stylishly too, thanks to its monochrome tone.

Bonia takes inspiration from the symbolic vehicle by embellishing its silhouette onto a striking, flat pouch, with leather flowers for wheels, versatile as both iPad pouch or travel clutch.
