As the Spring 2019 collections hit the runways, we’re making a mental list of all the bags we want to carry next season. From miniature bucket bags to sleek caryalls and bright pops of color, spring’s bags are shaping up to be statement-makers in their own right. Read our topic tosee all the best bags and emerging trends spotted on the runways in New York, London, Milan, and Paris.
The Best Bags On The Spring 2019 Runways
The Spring 2019 handbag offering was chock full of whimsical options, from open-knit beach bags to teeny tiny top-handle totes to clutches meant to look like rolled-up magazines to brand-new iterations of the fanny pack. For those looking for something more classic, there were plenty of timeless leather pieces to covet; in addition to your typical black, saddle brown or sandy tones, labels like Prada, Valentino and Marc Jacobs presented ladylike shapes in tie-dye, cherry red and sweet, candy-colored pastels.
The Hot fashion trends of Spring 2019: Handbag
The fashion houses are faced with a daunting task every time fashion month rolls around — creating a must-have “It” bag or shoe that will not only drive customers to shop their goods six months down the road, but that could also become so ubiquitous that it builds international brand awareness for shoppers of all ages. While some brands do this by doubling down on logos, preying on consumer nostalgia or a combination of the two (see: the re-release of both Dior’s Saddle Bag and Fendi’s Baguette Bag), other will play with unusual proportions, sizes, shapes and fabrications to stand out from their peers.
A ‘shock’-ing crossbody, Brandon Maxwell takes on the micro bag to a microscopic degree, and a not-so subtle suggestion that feathered bags are the new straw totes are just some of the hot trends we’re seeing at FW.
