I’m wearing a structured, square and hand held bag by Calvin Klein, the ultimate bag shape according to Giorgio Armani!
There is no limit to how many handbags a woman should call her own, that’s all that I say!
Here’s Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani guidance on women’s handbags:
What is the ultimate bag shape every woman should own and why?
A square shaped, minimalist, ultra light bag that is structured, medium in size and hand held. Easy to wear yet sophisticated, especially when made of fine leather.
How many bags should a woman own?
As many as she likes, but three is a must: a leather bag for the winter, a light canvas or unlined leather tote for the summer and an elegant clutch.
Why has the clutch become such an important part of a womant’s wardrobe?
Because it accentuates femininity and grace of movement, and is always new.
Personally, I also like Hobo bags as they are easy to wear and I have my hands free. I also love mini bags and small clutch bags with a handle.

For summer, a woman should own a canvas or unlined leather tote. My tapestry cat bag does not only fulfil Giorgio’s criteria but is also super cute!

One of my absolute must have bags for the summer is the straw bag: The Parisienne will carry hers around town.
