Masculine inspired fashion for the new season

Raoul Marilyn Structured Red Shoulder Bag

When wearing more neutral or darker colours, it’s sometimes nice to have an accessory that acts as a focal point, like eye candy, to draw in the eye, and that’s exactly what this structured red Marilyn bag by the designer Raoul does.

The bag is both stylish and functional, with three interior compartments, three interior pockets (one of which is zip fastening) and it fastens with a shiny silver turnlock fastening on the front. The straps are long enough for you to carry the bag over your shoulder, or you can carry it in your hands or the crook of your elbow if you prefer.

See by Chloé Suede / Leather Ankle Boots

These boots are slick and are a different take on the standard black ankle boot, featuring a partly suede and partly leather upper. The forefoot is made from black leather, featuring pointed toes and a hint of an eye catching gleam is provided with the silver metal insert at the heel.
