All shapes and sizes

Handbags come in many different styles, colours, shapes and designs. At Coco Barclay we love creating new shapes but you can't go wrong with a classic shape! The below gives you a guide to just a few of our classic shape favourites.
Clutch bag

 Typically a structured and rectangular shape,  minimal pocketing and made to carry life's essentials like your purse, phone and must have beauty products. Clutch bags were first seen in the 1930s made famous by Hermes. Great for a night out as a clutch is small enough not to detract from your outfit!
Tote bag

 Also known as a shopper bag, a medium or large bag with twin grab handles or shoulder strap, an open top and minimal pocketing. Popularised by the eco friendly shopping tote, these bags can deal with pretty much anything and are great for everyday use whether it be for your shopping or everyday essentials.  We love to have fun with the tote and add one off elements like vintage ties.
Messenger bag

 Usually rectangular in shape with a single top closure and at least one internal compartment, some pocketing and long adjustable strap. Designed to be worn across the body or thrown over the shoulder, a really well designed messenger transitions from a bike ride to the office with ease. Perfect for those who carry their laptop regularly but don’t want to use a backpack. Our solo messenger comes in many colours.
Hobo bag 

 Large crescent shaped bag with shoulder strap. The hobo is a  staple for every successful bag brand. A well made hobo will sit comfortably on your shoulder, fits all of your essentials in as well as the shopping you did on your lunch break! Bang on trend for this year. Our Sarah Mac hobo is named after one of our lovely customers!
