An Intergalactic Voyage

Bursting with colour the collection includes 11 bags (including the one pictured here) and five accessory pieces, all featuring the lovable Kipling monkey. Choose from the Humboldt carry-all backpack or the Langrenus tote bag for all your fashionable errands. Inspired by far travels into outer space they will have you rocketing directly into the future.

Join The Elite
If you’re in need of a new bag, and which woman out there doesn’t always need a new bag, but you are on a tighter budget than usual after the summer holidays and are already saving up for Christmas gifts, then you will love the new handbag collection by Elite. With a classic chain adorning the bags and fun zip and stud detailing, these “it” bags are not only affordable but will also complement the oh-so-trendy rock chic look of the season. And without any of the bags going over the 175€ mark, they are a steal.
Available at Stock Sacs, 109 bis rue Saint Dominique (7th).

Bel Air
This season Bel Air will have you looking effortlessly sexy in short one-piece jumpsuits, knitted pullovers and slinky low cut dresses. With boutiques peppering the fashion capital, you will be remiss to pass one by without popping your head in for affordable must-have pieces.

The ready-to-wear brand, known for its elegant use of natural fabrics including silk and cotton, also presents a collection featuring basic items every woman cannot live without such as basic tees and jeans, making it a favourite name for all budgets and all styles with pieces easily working with any wardrobe.

You will not be able to resist the high-waisted tailored pants or the sheepskin waistcoat that you can team up with a delicately printed jumpsuit for a day of lunching or over a pair of hot shorts for a night out on the town.
