Spring Bank Holiday Must-Haves

🕤 5 min read

As we approach the second bank holiday weekend of May, the British weather doesn’t seem able to make up its mind. We are dreaming of some time away from home.

Planning a trip away means, outfits for every occasion and especially in the UK for every weather. Find below our must-have bags to elevate your holiday style. 


Cultured London Eco Collection Bags: 'Abbey' Conker Brown Leather Backpack

You cannot overlook the natural beauty of the UK whether heading north, east, south or west you are bound to find a little slice of paradise whether at the seaside or in the countryside.

For these types of stays you need a robust yet stylish accessory; that is going to allow you to enjoy your scenery and maybe even get stuck in on a hike. We recommend the spacious yet lightweight, ‘Abbey’ in Conker Brown. This design from Cultured with its rustic colourway fits any activity.  

City Break

'Lytham' Cashmere Blue Leather Cross Body Clutch Bag

Especially for a long bank holiday, just a change of scenery is all that’s needed. New shops to peruse, new food spots to try and maybe even enjoy a drink or two whether in a lovely coffee shop or bar. 

However you decide to spend your time you will need a versatile accessory to transition from day to night and whatever your plans dictate. We adore the ‘Lytham’ in Cashmere Blue for this very reason. This design transitions from a cross body to a clutch bag with a simple detachable strap; making it ideal for a day exploring a new city or a night out. 

Weekend Abroad 

Now a city break in the UK is great but when you can grab a great last minute deal abroad, it’s a no brainer. I love exploring a new locale and the culture that comes with that. 

Whether wanting somewhere hot or cold, there is definitely a destination out there for you. For travelling further afield you definitely need a bag to perfectly match the requirements of hand luggage specifications that is stylish and versatile enough for the trip. We adore the elegant ‘Little Patience’ in Natural Taupe

Don’t let the Little part of the name fool you, this style is packed with storage features for everything you need for a night away and can then easily be used around your new home for the weekend. 

Stay at Home

'Nikita' Conker Brown & Dark Tan Leather Cross Body Bag

Travelling isn’t the only thing you can do this Bank Holiday weekend. Soaking in the sun, if it’s out and about this weekend in your garden, beer or otherwise; or even a nearby park is a great way to see friends and family. 

A shoulder bag is a great accessory for a day in the park or garden, enjoying picky bits and maybe even a BBQ for the brave. We love the simplistic but stylish nature of the ‘Nikita’. The brilliant Conker Brown and Dark Tan dual colourway is great for all seasons and elevates any look wherever your weekend takes you.
