I’m coveting man bags at Milan Spring Summer 2011 Men’s Fashion Week

The one place I thought I would be safe from shopping temptation would be Men’s Fashion Week in Milan. Oh how wrong I was.  Every single bag that was carried by masculine manicured hands was one in which I wanted to clutch in my own finely french manicured fingers.  They are, in fact, my dream bags. They’re large, leather, tote style and made to carry heavy “manly” things… although not quite sure what need to carry in large totes to be honest.  My boyfriend only ever carries his wallet and his blackberry. I think he’d rather be stabbed in the foot than own a man bag.  Whereas I carry everything but the kitchen sink in my handbag. I weighed it once and I won’t be doing that again…it explained why I have constant marks in my shoulders from the straps on bags! You’ll find me in the men’s section come Spring Summer 2011. There’s no doubt about it.  These are winning totes! The other great thing about the designer men’s bags…a lot don’t seem to fly off the shelves like women’s bags.  So, when it comes to sale time you can find some great bags still on the shelves, with no queues, in the men’s department.  This year at Selfridges Mulberry had some fantastic items on sale in Men’s that no one was given a second glance. I couldn’t stop myself for scooping up a purple croc weekend size tote bag on sale at 75% off the original price!

Here’s a look at some of my must haves from this past week’s shows…
