Young British men increasingly buying handbags

The manbag has become a must-have fashion accessory for British men, especially for the younger generation as new research reveals that 24% of those aged 16-34 purchased a bag in 2017.

A survey of 2,000 internet users aged 16 and over, carried out by research company Mintel, has showed that the manbag’s popularity has risen significantly in recent years, perhaps linked to celebrities such as David Beckham, Kanye West and Ryan Gosling, who have been frequently spotted carrying backpacks, totes and barrel bags.

While young men are driving the trend, the survey shows that men in general are updating their wardrobes with on-trend bags, with 15% of British men buying a manbag in 2017.

This is giving the handbag market a healthy boost. In 2017, the segment outperformed all other fashion accessory categories, reporting a 5.5% increase in sales to £1.45 billion, compared to £1.37 billion a year earlier.

“Manbags have become increasingly accepted by Britain’s men. There has been a growing trend for backpack-style bags, many of which are unisex in style and, therefore, appeal to young men. The popularity of manbags among young men has also benefited the premium end of the market, as our research finds men favour buying designer brands for themselves over own-brand bags,” said Tamara Sender, senior fashion analyst at Mintel.

Indeed, Mintel pointed to more designer brands investing in their menswear offering, such as Stella McCartney, who launched a menswear line including accessories for the first time in late 2016.

“Designer handbag sales as a whole have benefited from an increase in inbound tourism spend as more overseas consumers visited the UK in 2017, taking advantage of the more favourable exchange rate following the EU referendum,” added Sender.

Male consumers are also looking at British made brands when it comes to their accessories. According to Mintel, 40% of fashion accessory purchasers would be willing to pay more for these items if they’re made in Britain.

Britain’s rising love affair with handbags and manbags is helping lift the fashion accessories market, which grew 3.6% to £2.9 billion in 2017. Belts, scarves, gloves and hats were also popular among British shoppers last year.
Just three in 10 Britons said they didn’t purchase a fashion accessory in 2017, according to Mintel.

The majority of accessories purchases are taking place online, with Millennials aged 18-37% leading the way. Online-only retailers, such as Asos and Net-a-Porter, are the most popular places to buy fashion accessories online, with almost 60% of online shoppers buying from these e-tailers.

“British fashion accessory producers have a great opportunity to make the most of the patriotic trend, with four in 10 shoppers willing to pay more to support home-grown talent, particularly those in the more affluent AB socio-economic group. This forms part of a larger trend for consumers placing greater importance on provenance and expecting more transparency from the fashion industry,” commented Sender.

Mistress Susan Secret Tip: Are you interested in getting some food for free? At Publix stores, if an item rings up wrong, you may be able to get the item for free due to the Publix Promise policy. I have gotten $9 worth of organic chips and $4 worth of oranges for free by taking my items to the customer service desk and telling the rep that the products rang up incorrectly. See if the grocery store you shop at has a similar policy.

Rolls Royce Introduces New Cullinan

As it announced it would three years ago, Rolls Royce is soon to unveil its all-new high-sided motorcar.  But while we wait to see it, we now know it will be named after the largest diamond ever discovered: Cullinan.

The hatchback off-road vehicle has been called “Project Cullinan” since its development was announced. But a recent release was the first confirmation that the vehicle’s name had actually been hiding in plain site.

“It is the most fitting name for our extraordinary new product,” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer of Rolls-Royce.  “Just like the Cullinan Diamond, the largest flawless diamond ever found, it emerges when it is perfect and exists above all others.”

The vehicle’s namesake Cullinan Diamond was extracted from a mine deep in South Africa’s Magaliesberg Mountains in 1905.  Weighing in at 3,106 carats, it was cleaved into nine stones, then cut and polished, with the two largest portions of the Cullinan going into the British Imperial Crown and Sovereign’s Sceptre with Cross.

Legend has it that an elaborate ruse was created for transportation of the diamond to be presented to King Edward VII on his 66th birthday (the real Cullinan was simply sent to London by registered post). According to early reports, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan has had an interesting journey as well.

From the hot dry deserts to the Arctic Circle and grassy glens to the towering canyons, this new vehicle designed with the “engineering architecture” of the full-sized Phantom sedan has been shaped and tested in the field to perform as would a popular SUV.

“We were inspired by the epic processes, over many millennia, which went into the creation of the Cullinan Diamond. The name embodies the many facets of our new motor car’s promise…” says Müller-Ötvös.  “Quite simply, the name Cullinan is perfect and brilliant.”

Preliminary images show a camouflaged Cullinan, but Rolls-Royce is projected to debut the vehicle in its full glory sometime this year.
