10 of the best saddle bags

Featuring: JW Anderson, Chloé and Mulberry SS18

Designers from Jonathan Anderson to Natacha Ramsay-Levi turned their hand to souping up this closet essential for SS18, turning the saddle bag into a must-have. Chloé updated the in-demand Drew bag with chain embellishments, while at Loewe, the desirability comes courtesy of the beautifully soft caramel-colored leathers. But the most important update has nothing to do with design and everything to do with the way you carry it – held in one hand, with the strap pulled at least halfway through your palm, it suddenly looks less practical and more magical.
