The Little Black Bag
We were surprised yet not unhappy to see our dear Queen featured in ES magazine's Top 40 Best Dressed Londoners feature. On her recent trip to Slovakia she rocked up in a fur-trimmed coat, glossy black riding boots and a Little Black Bag. The Queen has been sporting these Launer handbags for decades and it just goes to prove that if you stick to something long enough, fashion eventually catches up. Imagine how ridiculous she would look toting a Dior Saddle or Balenciaga Lariat, yet her lovely Little Black Bag looks utterly of-the-moment.
If we had £635 to spend on a bag, we wouldn't hesitate for a second to splash out on this Launer Bellini bag (above). We would give the flat boots and fur coat a miss though and wear it with a vintage dress, aviators and boyfriend cardi.
