Bags of style at Regent Arcade

Here at Regent Arcade we have an unrivalled selection of designer and high street bags to perfectly complement any outfit. From top designers to purse-friendly high street versions, whatever your budget we have something perfect for you.

A brand new arrival at independent store Enekes is hot new brand Modalu, whose beautiful leather bags are carried by the likes of Pippa Middleton. Our favourite in the range is the toffee-coloured Pippa bag (pictured) at £199. Enekes also stock other premium brands such as Radley, Bridge, Osprey and Kipling for perfect gifts and payday treats. Head to Moda in Pelle next – you’ll find so much more than just shoes. Their bag range is inspired by the latest catwalk looks so you can look stylish without being stung by the hefty price tag. Our top pick from their range is the cute floral Missiebag clutch (£49.95) which would look great with a hot pink dress.

Opposite Moda in Pelle, River Island’s bag collection will delight fashionistas with its on-trend prints and colours. Their lime structured bowler bag (£40.00) would look fantastic paired with white jeans and a floaty top. Their monochrome bags are also very on-trend and affordable- try teaming one of their cross-body bags (from £18) with a cute shift dress for sophisticated chic.

Earth-inspired silver jewellery retailer Pia also stock an affordable range of premium leather bags and wallets in subtle colours and grown-up designs. Ideal for gifting, their soft leather purses store coins and cards in style- just make sure you pop a few pennies in for luck!

Younger shoppers will love the colourful selection on offer at Claire’s, from One Direction branded satchels to fluoro rucksacks to brighten up their school day. They can accessorise their bags too with a range of cute and funky bag charms and keyrings (from £2).

If you’ve ever been called a bit of a magpie, you’ll be instantly drawn to the sparkly accessories on offer at The Little Bag Company. At prices starting from £1, girlie girls will love their costume jewellery and hair accessories. Their handbags start from just £6 for a mini satchel.

Last but not least, if you head to the Ormond Place entrance of the arcade you’ll find BHS – which in addition to its own great range of clothing and accessories, also houses Miss Selfridge, Wallis and Dorothy Perkins concessions. There really is something for all the family here whether it’s a beach bag for an upcoming summer holiday or a clutch for a big night out.

Regent Arcade Shopping Centre is open as usual during the frontage redevelopment, with a great range of fashion-forward stores and 500 parking spaces. www.regentarcade.co.uk; www.facebook.com/regentarcade;
