As well as attending the shows to spot the new summer fashion trends, we always keep an eye out for the London Fashion Week accessories worn on the street, to dictate what we should be adding to our seasonal wardrobe. Or more specifically carrying.
One bag in particular has been making a regular appearance on the cobbles of Copenhagen, London and even Milan, a sure sign it's got the fashion crowd's seal of approval.
It is called the NEO ring bag, and comes courtesy of STÉE. As its name suggest, it's got a futuristic vibe to it, thanks to a rounded metal handle and clean leather design.
Parisian designer Estelle Orilland, the woman behind Stella McCartney's famous Falabella bag, says, ' the inspiration behind the NEO Ring Bag‘s design came, first of all, from furniture design & metal parts from different chairs. Marcel Breuer as well as Mies van de Rohe chairs.
'From the MR20 to the wassily shape, I am completely obsessed with designer chairs. How the round metal tubes/chair legs would be covered with leather and leave oval holes around the tube. The NEO bag itself has leather covered press buttons, which are inspired by these design details.'
It's been spotted on influences such as Bettina Looney and Bonnie Langedijk, as well as many a fashion editor.
I'm loving the cream version, however it also comes in black, olive and embellished versions to cover all tastes. They will launch on the STÉE website at the end of Paris Fashion Week so make sure you add that to your diaries.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.
Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).
Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.
However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.
Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
