Festival Tribes

Festival Season has officially started with the return of Glastonbury this weekend, but which Festival Tribe do you belong to and which Aspinal bag will help you polish off your look?

Story & quotes via


Just because you're squelching around in mud, doesn't mean you can't rock a bit of velvet - or so suggests Alexa Chung, at least. Bringing a sophistication to even the festival fields, take her style cues with a neat blazer, jean and welly boot ensemble. Opt for a blouse beneath rather than a band T-shirt.

The Trunk Clutch with Patches or Mini Buckle Bag would suit this Victoriana style perfectly - both will add sophistication to any outfit.

New Vintage

Hippy spirit is embodied by the flame-haired songstress Florence Welch in her billowing gowns, kaftans and accompanying flowing locks. This is when a dress is entirely appropriate for the festivities of the fields. Side note: second-hand or high street options are best - anything too precious should be saved for the stage only.

Both the Mini Hepburn Bag and Trunk Clutch have vintage inspiration behind them, and with their updated and modern touches, these bags would perfectly compliment any New Vintage outfit.

Rock 'n' Roll

The classic pin-up gal when it comes to festival dressing is of course Kate Moss in her rock chic garb. The key here is to look like you're with the band (which of course she is) and not care too much about it. Ripped tights? Yeah, what of it?

Our Saddle Bag in our brand new Burgundy colourway is the perfect companion for any leather jacket wearing lady. The Mini Letterbox Rucksack gives a hands-free, practical options for those Rock 'n' Rollers who want to get into the thick of it.

Festival Cheer

Poppy Delevingne cleverly manages to navigate the fields and mud through her choice of colourful, cute and fresh accessories. Opt for real boots over wellingtons; choose a real bag over a rucksack or satchel; and go all out when it comes to any sort of floral wreath in the hair. Pompom fun is welcome.

The Mini Sophia and Padlock Bucket Bag make for great mini and playful bags this festival season. The bright colourways would bring anyone Festival Cheer.
