A Bag Story; Trends to Watch Out For in the Season
“Life is Short, Buy the Bag”, said someone with great insight.

A fine vista of craftsmanship in utility, a handbag leads the accessory wagon by great lengths. History traces back its existence thousands of years. It was recognised then and celebrated now. This season, runway collections and street styles were dominated by the depiction of variation in extremes with vintage feels. Adhering to that, we have classified handbags, basis trending shapes, hues, materials, utility and pure style to help you choose the ones which resonate with you the best.

In Love with the Shape of You

Bucket Bags: They are reigning over the charts by adding that cheery cuteness. Stylish and evergreen, they come in a multitude of striking selections with innovative materials, upscale detailing and distinctive colours. Drawstring and slouchy options are trending. Try mini versions by Miu Miu in bright colours and vintage looks. Also explore collections by Chanel and Louis Vuitton to explore the wondrous world of bucket bags.

Circular Bags: A shape which has always been loved due to its perfection, Circular Bags add that suave look and can be donned for any occasion: formal, casual or celebratory. From what’s out there, we have loved pieces by Stella McCartney who gave us ultimate spring vibes, while Marc Jacobs played with bright colours and Michael Kors took on the regal side with leather.

Box Bags: They are neat and a great blend of contemporary with retro, giving you the chance to blend in, regardless of occasion. Roksanda made our pastel dreams come true with her eye-pleasing collection, while pieces by Oscar de la Renta gave hard party vibes and Louis Vuitton pieces gave a classy statement to carry on.

Slouchy and Soft Clutches: Hot in town, these light bags are the new favourites. A masterpiece invented by Bottega Veneta, they are a vision in large as well as mini sizes. Leather is reigning here, where you can choose pastel or tan shades.

Geometrics: Sharp shapes such as star, triangle, trapezoid and hexagon, with all their edges, are cutting in the trends this year. Collections by Coach, Coperni and CELINE bear a classy testimony to that.

Egg-Shaped Bags: Innovative and extremely chic, these egg-shaped bags are a delight for eyes looking out for innovation. Collections by Coperni, Brandon Maxwell, Zimmermann and Chanel give you a delightful glimpse of them.

Camouflages: Apart from that, a new vista to look out for are these unusual shaped bags. Pyer Moss shaped one of his bags like a mini guitar case, Louis Vuitton took out one appearing as a VHS Tape, Moschino created a Painter’s Palette Bag and JW Anderson moulded a Baseball Cap.
