The highlight of renting one of these cushiony bags is that they also double up as a pillow for the plane, a snooze at work, or that extra-long wedding ceremony. Inspired by Bottega Veneta, brands like A.W.A.K.E. Mode and Staud have blessed us with cute and comfy alternatives.

Beaded bags are not going anywhere. First introduced by the likes of Shrimps, Susan Alexandra and old-school vintage Fendi baguettes, these statement accessories are here to stay. Our top of the pops is this blue and white beaded zebra print mini bag from Staud. Closely followed by these two Shrimps beauties. A guaranteed hit at that spring garden party.

No crocodile tears here! We spotted these delicious mock-croc bags all over the streets this fashion week. Our favourite bag to hire is the mini-croc that is just big enough for your phone and a tiny snack, like this By Far top-handle bag. If hunger strikes and you need to fit more food in your knapsack, try out this tan Staud tote.
