Judging from the bags that are available from these two stores, it seems that the trend is geared towards hip, young females who strive for that model off-duty look, thus the unstructured soft satchels and totes. A year or so ago that look was made popular by Alexander Wang, to the point where his Coco duffels were sold out during his trunk shows, but now other brands have followed suit and I say they are doing a better job at it.
My personal favourite would be Mulberry’s Alexa since the oversized version would be perfect for school. What got me drooling was the delicious purple leather, needless to say the leather looks so buttery soft. If it wasn’t for the price tag I’d have pre-ordered it.
