London Fashion Week Men’s starts tomorrow, which means there is one essential item everyone and I will need – a great bag. With a phone, small wallet or separate cards, back-up charger and cable, invitations and a snack bar (always, always take a snack bar) having the smallest but best use of space that leaves you hands free is essential. So here’s my round up of the Best 5 Bags for LFWM…
