This morning, Penneys HQ opened its doors to the press and influencers alike, to showcase it's champion pieces for the Spring/Summer season. 

Nestled among linen suits, perspex sandals and a whole new range of fragrances, thee was one piece we kept coming back to have another look at. 

This saddle-shaped, studded handbag is a definite trophy piece from the upcoming collection. From the golden chain handle to the strap overlay, we're beyond obsessed. 

Reminiscent of the kidney-shaped Dior Saddle Bag, this summery offering will certainly come in at less than 1% of the cost (€2,800). 

The OG Saddle bag came onto the scene back in 2000, and became the official it-bag of the turn of the millennium, booting the Fendi Baguette bag off it's original it-bag pedestal. 

The bag faded out of fashion, until Beyonce (queen) brought hers back out in 2014 – setting off a chain reaction that caused the bag to be resurrected and the style to return to fashion focus.

Penney's version has a boxier shape, so it's perfect to add some structure to a loose white summer dress, or oversized 80s blazer and jeans combo. 

It also calls on zebra print, the pattern of the season, so it ticks two major style boxes.
