Clutches are held in hands and come in such different forms and shapes – from envelope to a document folder where you can keep all the necessary work docs and carry them to the office instead of taking a whole suitcase with you. Although the latter also appeared in some collections.

Backpacks were seen in many summer collections. They are convenient but can also be stylish. Think leather, interesting shapes and punchy colors. Louis Vuitton offers an ultmiate luxury sports backpack with an external pocket in croc leather.
