The chain strapped cross body bag is one of my favourite bags as it is so uncomplicated, yet chic. It’s my staple for evenings and everyday outfits.
Thanks to Coco Chanel, who designed her iconic 2.55 bag with double strapped chains which are attached by leather straps inserted by eyelets, many prestigious designers followed. From Mulberry to Valentino, every designer has a chain strapped bag as part of their classic range.
