THE NEW ACCESSORY LINE THAT’S BOUND TO BE YOUR NEW BFF

Pop and Suki bags are the latest accessory trend to take the fashion industry by storm. My Instagram feed has been littered with celebrities endorsing the adorable little camera bags, which come in an array of cotton candy pink, noir and cognac and can have a personalised base. These dreamy bags are designed by model-gone-actress-gone-singer, Suki Waterhouse, and her entrepreneur BFF, Poppy Jamie. Although neither of the girls are designers by trade they seem to know how to do so and how to do it right; making waves in the fashion industry with these delights. Since their release the bags have featured in high-fashion publications such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. These cute camera bags are not the only available item from the brand, with more bags, add-ons and jewellery on offer.

Whilst I cannot deny I would love to have a pastel pink Pop and Suki camera bag swung over my shoulder, I do have my criticisms of the brand. The brand’s website and further publications have deemed these bags as “affordable”, with the website explicitly stating that they aim to provide “higher quality things at lower prices”. The rather small camera bags from the range cost $195, the Shopper Tote costs $255, add-ons such as extra straps are $50 and for a necklace complete with a charm you are looking at spending $160. If you are wishing to personalise any of your items that’s an extra $40. On top of all that there’s about £40 shipping fee with tax for UK orders! To me none of this screams affordable. It is cheaper than some of the other high-end brands yet I do not feel it succeeds in its aim and to me affordable amounts to high-street price ranges. Whilst these bags seemed to be a hit among the stars we must not forget that the majority have been sent these bags free-of-charge, a well-known marketing ploy to encourage the general public to go out and buy the items on offer. We are yet to see whether this seasons new accessory trend is to be a hit amongst the public or whether the price tag will put many off, like myself. Despite my criticisms I can’t deny I have been put under some sort of Pop and Suki spell and I would love to be the owner of a personalised cotton candy pink camera bag from the range but as a mere student I can’t justify spending hundreds on such a dainty yet adorably cute little bag.
