Britain's desire for upmarket handbags has outstripped that of every other nation, and luxury goods brands are clamouring for space in London.
Bottega Veneta, Michael Kors and Longchamp are all in talks to open more stores in the capital to cash in on the country's growing taste for designer handbags.
Demand in the UK has outstripped the US, France and Japan, according to the World Luxury Index.
