Cross body bags: trendy AND practical.
Season after season, handbags undergo a process of reinvention. At one point they were imposing and roomy, but they are now becoming more compact and discreet. Today, the traditional hand-held bag has surrendered its position to a much more practical design, that is to say bags with long straps. Also known as a "cross body", these small bags can be worn over the shoulder or, as the name suggests, across the body. That gives easy access to the bag's contents and leaves the person carrying it with free hands which comes in very handy. As well as being functional, a cross body bag is a designer piece and a real must-have in any woman's wardrobe.
From small designers to leading luxury labels.
All the leading fashion brands now offer cross body bags in their collections. You can, therefore, treat yourself to a legendary design like the Marmont by Gucci, the Marcie by Chloé, the Loulou by Saint Laurent or even the Timeless by Chanel. But our section of cross body bags also includes more recent, more affordable designers who are showcased front and centre. There are bags by Jacquemus, Jérôme Dreyfuss and Sézane sitting alongside the leading deluxe labels.
