The Perspex Bag Trend: Shop Six High Street Favorites

Perspex bags on Burberry and Simone Rocha runways, Spring 2013

One of the hottest accessory trends that you need to get on your fashion radar this spring is the Perspex bag trend, seen on an array of runways such as Burberry and Simone Rocha. Burberry’s (above left) came in the form of pyramidal shaped bags in a rainbow of clear coloured plastics ranging from red to violet, whereas Simone Rocha’s catwalk (above right) cavorted completely clear Perspex shoppers. It has to be said that bags as clear as these aren’t for the faint hearted, and preferably for the girl who doesn’t mind showing off the contents of her handbag to the world.

If the runway’s offerings are a little out of your price range, add these gems to your imaginary wish list and shop the high street’s alternatives instead. Here are some of our favourites.
