Sherene Melinda Lou Lou Pouch leather Springbok hair-on-hide handbag

Introducing the SS18 Sherene Melinda Lou Lou Pouch Handbag

The smallest and no doubt the cutest of the SS18 collection is the Lou Lou Pouch - a mini bucket bag.

Dating back to the 1900's the bucket bag originates from the original drawstring pouches for ladies to carry their essentials delicately in this pouch style handbag.
