Kenzo's power pouches

Power Pouches

The modern style maven’s answer to the clutch, the pouch goes back to basics this season with a more streamlined silhouette. Perfect for adding a shot of personality to your look thanks to its many incarnations – colour-pop, printed, embellished – its multi-tasking qualities can stretch to tablet case, make-up pouch or home to valuables such as keys and cards in an oversized tote. We like to keep one on hand in our everyday bag, ready for after-dark, should last-minute invitations come calling.

Offered up in myriad styles – from Kenzo’s instantly-recognisable tiger embroidery to Valentino's Rockstud detailing – the pouch bag’s simple proportions are the perfect backdrop to statement finishes, ensuring a purposefully undone end result.

Lend a graphic twist to your accessories repertoire with a printed pouch courtesy of Givenchy or Alexander McQueen: perfect for print-phobes who want to dip into the trend without committing to more than a few square inches.

The bold hues of SS15’s pouch bag offering ensures an instant sugar rush. Victoria Beckham does it best with her signature zipped pouch; we’re coveting one in every colour.
