In a poll by McArthurGlen’
Sally Gilbank at McArthurGlen York, says: “It’s a common perception among women that you can never have too many handbags. Each new season introduces a variety of new styles, but the difference with bags versus partners is, you don’t have to choose just one – in fact nearly half the women we spoke to owned up to 10 handbags each. For AW11 the satchel and oversized clutch bag are popular trends and we’re anticipating thousands of women coming to the centre specifically to invest in a new handbag style for autumn.”
The survey also revealed that women between the ages of 18-24 would travel further for their perfect handbag than they would for their first date, showing that when it comes to Yorkshire women the handbag really is the love of their lives.
