First outings: Large Kenzo X H&M Shopper. (An instant classic but not for all seasons)

My Kenzo x H&M shopper FINALLY got its first outing last weekend. I’ve had it for seven months (the collection landed last November!) but this just isn’t a Winter bag – the colour and style are not for soggy conditions. Happily, Saturday was gloriously sunny. And with a bulky gift to carry to a 6 year old’s birthday party, it seemed the ideal opportunity to give it a spin.

Verdict? It did well. Obviously, the colour meant I had to be careful where I put it down. But, I’m usually – and possibly irritatingly(!) –  precious about my bags anyway 🙂 so this wasn’t a problem. It’s large enough to take quite a lot – it managed the gift plus the usual baggage that comes along with a 6 year old – without feeling too bulky. Meaning it fits comfortably under the arm as well. My only quibble is with the straps which are a little “shallow” (not sewn deep enough into the body of the bag) for its size. So, if you’ve got one, be careful not to over load it with heavy items as I’m not convinced those straps can take it. And avoid extremely wet days obvs! Otherwise, another H&M collaboration gem. See Hello my name is Addie and I’m a brand collaboration addict for my other very happy H&M collaboration purchases. And if you would like a piece of the action from the next one, stay tuned to yours truly as I will be tracking events very closely……. 🙂
