Fierce in more ways than one, the signature handbag from local label Lya Lya might scare small children, but it’s a must-have for autumn/winter. Part of the latest collection by Dubai-based Lebanese-Russian designer Layla Shurgi, the bold tote is available in four colour combinations, such as nude with silver spikes and black with gold spikes, although we’re putting our money on the classic black-on-black combo. Caution: handle with care. Dhs3,400. Available at S*uce, various locations including The Dubai Mall (04 339 9696).
