Bags, and shoes, are women’s most-coveted accessories, and we have our eye on BlackCherry handbags. What you need to know is that they are affordable and on-trend. For the rest, these pics will do the talking.

1.BlackCherry shopper, R350

We love this tan shopper, especially the size, as all women dream of a bag that’s big enough for everything and the kitchen sink.


Wear with: Jeans, pumps a chunky knit and you’re good to go!

2. BlackCherry Zip sling bag, R299

We love the zip detail and the neon yellow. This bag works as a sling bag during the day and as a clutch in the evening.


Wear with: Jeans, a white tee and loafers during the day and pair with a nude embellished dress in the evening.

3. BlackCherry quilted backpack, R299

This is one of our favourites. Who doesn’t love a backpack? It’s fashionable and functional.

Wear with anything street, full stop. Oh and wear with plenty of attitude too.

4. BlackCherry two-tone shopper, R399

We love the contrasting colours and the practicality of this totally chic tote.


Wear with: It’s made for being on the go. Pair with flats and an oversized mannish camel coat or tailored jacket.

5. BlackCherry tote in cobalt or yellow, R399

Love both colours, love the zip and stitching that creates texture. The size is great for everyday use too.

Blackcherry BlackCherry-handbags

Love that the backpack is so versitile with any look. My wardrobe must have ♡

  • Nabeela Suliman May 21, 2013 - 3:54 pm Reply

    A classic leather backpack is the ideal go-to bag for the girl on the go like myself. Leather offers backpacks a sleek and sophisticated finish that’s suitable for the cool and casual urbanite or the uptown lady, whichever I decide upon. For a simple and elegant approach to this stylish and functional bag, a leather backpack would fit the bill for my carry all needs. I would definitely pair this stunner with black stockings, a black fitted pencil skirt, white shirt tucked in and bright neon yellow high heels together with a touch of gold accessories. This bag is a replica of the Chanel black quilted backpack! Ka-Ching! SCORE :)

  • Tarne' May 21, 2013 - 4:18 pm Reply

    I don’t think that these bags should be restricted to wearing it with something specific..These bags are awesome for an everyday look especially for everyday work attire and definitely special occassions.. They definitely complete any outfit..Blackcherry bags cater from every style, taste and look :) I would really like to be the happy owner of one of these bags. #Impressed

    I will wear the black quilted backpack with just about everything because it is so versatile, practical and super fab. But specifically I would love to wear it with a cute winter shift dress, a knitted headband, some tights and then some super comfy cameo boots. This will be a chilled yet stylish look. And then I will wear it everyday after that because I am obsessed with it. xx

    LOVE BlackCherry but even more obsessed with this gorgeous backpack! My go-to outfit would be OTT Street Style with a sense of chic. A black skinny, lace up ankle boots + a spiked leather jacket or a black coset with studs! Gold rings a must! A bag like this craves attitude and with that look, it kills it! I’d do glamour girl cute too, animal print pencil skirt, a well fitted black peplum with to-die-for heels, a edgy hair-do, that gorg backpack and the world is mine! Fingers crossed for this giveaway, want it so bad! Just too gorgeous

    I would wear this gorgeous black quilted backpack with a very upbeat and funky outfit because its so versatile and oozes grunge yet elegance.

    I would firstly pair it with a sleeveless neon yellow mullet-styled chiffon button down shirt which will be worn with black fitted leather tights. With the style of this quilt, we would just HAVE to incorporate heels so I would pair it with any black and gold stiletto platform boot (preferable Christian Louboutin or Sissy Boy) and I would finish the whole look off with chinky gold bracelets and a gold watch with a statement gold neck piece and some simple gold earrings and not forgetting some statement eyewear :)

    Hope I win :) Love this backpack.

  • Khwaza Tshisela May 27, 2013 - 2:19 pm Reply

    I’m totally loving this backpack trend! It’s not often that fashion and function meet and balance well and I feel like this backpack achieves that so well! I must also add that I love the quilt detail comeback, still classy! For the hoarder and cluster freak that I am this will come in handy! I’m a student also so convinience accompanied by the hint of edge in this backpack will surely put me on my A game!

    To keep this fresh, mordern and ofcourse street, I would wear it with my oversized camo shirt (now a dress shirt), a pair of black stockings, a black beanie, burgundy lips, my leopard print pair of creepers for a day look and ofcourse dress it up with my new yet to be worn over the top FABULOUS zebra print spiked Lita boots accompanied with lots of attitude haha! What better item to compliment this trendy look than this backpack? I think it’s important to keep the look laid back but edgy. I need this BlackCherry backpack to complete my winter wardrobe. Pick me please :)
