A handbag as a timeless and functional accessory has always been at the top of the list of the most desired and loved women’s accessories. After all, no styling is complete without it.
We will present the most interesting handbag proposals of designers and well-known brands for the autumn-winter 2021/2022 period. They will certainly be on the wish list of many women ready to spend a considerable amount on another novelty in their closet.
Soft, furry and woolly, in natural as well as neon colors – this model was promoted by Burberry, Michael Kors, Miu Miu, Prada and Tod’s, among others. They bring to mind the warmth of your favorite blanket and delicious cocoa, making them an ideal choice for the colder season. Although it is a rather extravagant model, it is sure to work well in both party and casual outfits.
Another proposition that reminds us of home comfort are puffy bags, soft as a pillow. They first appeared in popular brands’ collections a year ago, but it is the upcoming season that heralds the peak of their popularity. They come in the form of shoppers and oversized clutch bags, usually made of waterproof nylon and in bold colors.
Louis Vuitton, Prada, Versace, Coperni, Tod’s presented simple but very striking crescent-shaped handbags in their collections. This motif fits into the ubiquitous trend for astronomical and ethnic inspirations. The “moon” bags come in small, medium and oversize hobo versions, as a variation on the classic bag-bags.
Small is beautiful – probably this thought accompanied designers of mini bags. They appeared on catwalks at Chanel, Moschino and Versace, among others. The smallest variants can hold only a card and a rolled up mask. What they make up for their small capacity, is their diverse and rich design. They do not lack detail, charm and chic, as well as interesting forms – models in XXS version are available in the form of belts, neck chains, and even bracelets for arm or leg.
In opposition to the micro version of handbags this season stand bags with a real presence – capacious, handy, large. Oversize is desired in every model, from classic briefcases (Gucci and Balmain), through everyday shoppers (Dior, Hermès, Khaite), to elegant clutch bags (Fendi, Gabriela Hearst). This is the perfect choice for ladies who like to be prepared for everything.
Glitter, glamour and glitz, glitter, sequins and studs – this season, party bags and rich bags are also making their way into everyday styles. The biggest fashion houses Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Prada and Chanel convince us that we do not need an occasion to shine. Their proposals drip with gold, sparkle with thousands of crystals and dazzle with metallic glitter.
Tassel fashion is constantly making a comeback and this season will be no different. It’s a nod to boho style, but also a great way to spice up the look of a bag with a minimalist design. The largest selection of classic variants can be found in Etro collection, but the proposals of Area, Michael Cors or Isabel Marant are also worth attention.
Another recurring trend are chains – elegant silver and gold ones, as well as looser and fancier colorful ones. As a bag handle or as a decorative element, chains appeared on the catwalks of Louis Vuitton and Valentino, as well as in the collections of Longchamp and Acne Studios.
