I always find the September issue slightly disconcerting. When you’ll be reading this, shops will be starting to fill with autumn’s new fashions, yet we are more likely to be wearing swimsuits than shearling.

Wear it over your shoulder and the chunky, woven chain instantly elevates the simplest outfit, while the handle turns into a cool knuckle-duster when held as a clutch. It’s the bag that just keeps on giving.…
