Every monsoon, we have two options: turn on stealth mode, taking to hiding under trees and unsuspecting strangers’ umbrellas to save our delicate bags, or stride forward with bag in hand, with no fear of the water. Having belonged to category A for far too long, we decided that it was time to stop the suffering and get some weather-friendly bags. Here are what our investigations yielded.


This classic mini-white bag is awesome for a day out when we don’t have a gazillion things to toss in. The plastic shields our bag from the rain, and a pouch keeps our wallet and keys from jangling around. PS: it has a detachable shoulder strap too.

Price: INR 1,490 {after discount}

We have a soft corner for clouds, especially when they’re in our hand. Cord has the perfect monsoon-themed clutch which would look great as a bag, or even inside our transparent Zara bag.
