Nov. 9, 2011 - PRLog -- The true object of Yorkshire women’s affections has been uncovered once and for all, as 27% admit they have fallen in love with a handbag on more occasions than they have been in love with a partner, according to a new survey.

In a poll by McArthurGlen’s York Designer Outlet, where leading fashion and accessories brands including OSPREY LONDON and Radley are available at up to 60 per cent less, female shoppers were found to have a weak spot when it comes to handbags. In a questionnaire, nearly half (35%) of the women surveyed revealed they have owned a prized handbag for up to five years - longer than their longest relationship.

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.
