Brighten up your office and the footpath with an eye-catching handbag. From multi-coloured handwoven Colombian Wayuu carriers to straw bags adorned with pom poms, the trend for bags with colour and personality continues this year.

A brand to know is Sophie Anderson, whose bold bags are stocked at high-profile stores including Net-a-Porter, and Barneys.

The London-based designer fell in love with the Colombian Wayuu style of bags and weaving communities while travelling there in 2011. At first she began making bags for friends and family, before employing a group of three weavers to help with bigger collections. She now provides work for more than 750 Wayuu artisans.
