Hanbag Fashion Trends – Fall/Winter 2014/2015
Summer is almost gone and you are probably thinking about fall/winter clothes, footwear and accessories. We observed fashion collections for fall/winter 2014-2015 and here is our report! Since everything seems to be fashionable these days, we’ll talk only about the biggest handbag trends for upcoming season.
#1 Big Handbags – Frankly, this season handbags tend to be small and medium sized. If, however, you prefer big handbags, check out the collections of Angelo Marani, Moschino and Ralph Lauren.
#2 Retro Style – We have to admit that retro inspired accessories are very popular these days, especially the American and the English classics. Designers have created this super cute romantic mood and we think it’s worth giving a try. Take a look at Hugo Boss, Louis Vuitton, Marni, Salvatore Ferragamo, Christian Dior and Miu Miu collections. You’ll get the idea and, chances are, you’ll love it.
#3 Geometric Shapes & Box-like Bags – Although this might seem contradictory, these bags actually accentuate the charm and femininity of the classic image of a woman. With creative designs and adornments, these bags still do not look practical, but they do create rather effective combinations. It’s like having a mini pirates’ treasure chest with you all the time! Chanel, Versace and Alexandar Wang presented leather made models, while Dolce&Gabbana and Louis Vuitton have adorned this kind of bags with some metallic details. Check out also other variations created by Giorgio Armani, Betsey Johnson, Derek Lam, Christiano Siriano and Erin Fertherston.
#4 Short Belts – We mentioned that the trend of going smaller is quite obvious. Well, it’s not only about the size of the bag, belts tend to be shorter and shorter! This gave birth to some very interesting design interpretations. Lines of Louis Vuitton and Chanel have some of the most spectacular models with short belts.
#5 Textile Bags – This time you’ll see textile bags everywhere, because it seems to be universal trend this season. Since this type of material enables fashion designers to make anything they want, this trend comes as no surprise. While Marc Jabobs, Burberry Prorsum and Hugo Boss opted for the plays with leather, Chanel, Vivienne Westwood and Rag&Bone came up with really amazing pieces with only soft and subtle textile variants.
