Big handbags or Small?posted on 15 January 2010 | posted in Handbag and fashion Articles
Handbags made it into the news this week.
The weight of women's handbags has dropped by 57% in two years.
The new generation of gadgets that women carry is so light that an average bag now weighs 3.3lb - down from 7.3lb.
Lighter, multi-purpose technology, such as iPhones and Blackberrys, have replaced heavy laptops and "brick" phones.
But what about us women that carry 'every thing but the kitchen sink" we still need keys, makeup, combs, stuff for the kids etc.
I find it hard to believe that the trend for large bags will ever die out, but according to the handbag buyer at Debenhams, small and discreet bags are replacing the enormous 'it" bags.
I still think that most women will keep at least one big bag in their collection. With this in mind, we are now stocking part of the Claudia Canova Handbag range. A stunning collection of up to the minute designs in the latest colours for the season. Click for more
