The handbags of 2017
Posted on 04 January 2017
A very Happy New Year to you all!
2017 sees handbag trends with some exciting extremes, from tiny matchboxes from Valentino and Hermes to 'fit your kitchen sink' handbags from Balenciaga and Celine.
Bucket bags have gotten an upgrade - they are now Cinch bags! As with the predecessor, everyone has iteration. Grungy ones from the likes of Alexander Wang and playful ones like the delicious handbag from Givenchy that looks like an intoxicating burst of Smarties.
Our favourite are pop prints, some of which would've made Andy Warhol himself proud! Versace definitely leads the pack with their graphic prints along with Prada, celebrating painterly details resembling bright brush strokes. Even the likes of Loewe and Gucci have thrown their hat in the print ring.
Gilded, roped, studded, embellished. Descriptions not of handbags, but handles to hold on to; creations from Miu Miu and Louis Vuitton that will make you sit up and take notice.
So lots of exciting trends in 2017 to watch out for and look forward to.
