Fall and Winter Handbag Trends 17/18

Summer is nearly over and as the nights get shorter and the temperature dips there is only one thing on our mind. That’s right - new season trends! It’s that time of year when we get to explore the exciting new styles hitting the shops and begin investing in the looks that will take us through to Christmas. Of course, we have been spending our time studying accessories – in particular, the handbag picks. The Autumn/Winter catwalks were packed with show stoppingly beautiful bags in a spectrum of styles. One thing is for certain, your handbag this season should make a serious fashion statement!

 

Here at G-Sisters, we are always ahead of the pack when it comes to handbag trends and we have rounded up the very best bags for the new season, below. 

 

Micro Bags 

 

Small but beautifully formed these tiny bags made an appearance for most of the top fashion houses. The devil is in the detail here so pick bags with exquisite embellishments, colours and textures. For the most on trend interpretation, you should wear your micro bag slung across the body. One of our favourites is this beautifully designed micro bag from Valentino. Featuring a sumptuous floral design, gold studs, and chain handle – it’s sure to turn heads. 

 

 

Structured Bags

 

Think architecturally inspired bags with crisp finishing and subtle design details. A slight trapezoid shape defines the look bringing a modern twist to classical lines. These are bags with serious attitude and make the perfect choice for that important meeting or presentation. Wear with sharp tailoring for a clean modern look. This caramel tote bag from Valentino is a gorgeous example of the style – subtle gold detailing adds polish and presence.

 

 

 

Day Clutch 

 

Who says a clutch bag is just for the evening? The trend setters have brought the clutch out of the shadows and into your everyday wardrobe this season. Brighten up your daytime look with a gorgeous new season clutch. On the catwalk, clutches were shown in every colour, shape, and design so let your imagination run wild and pick a bold style that matches your mood. Pair this siren red clutch from Valentino with your lipstick for a femme fatale finish. The distinctive logo adds extra edge while a cross body strap means you can wear as a regular handbag. 

 

 

 

Mock Crock Print 

 

Designers went wild for animal inspired prints this season with fur and snakeskin featured heavily in handbag design. Another favourite was croc print and we love how this finish adds a vintage feel to your outfit. Faux croc skin works perfectly for the evening, adding depth and texture to your look. This beautiful deep brown croc print bag from Valentino features a distinctive chain logo design which adds an extra layer of opulence. The perfect handbag for the little black dress in your life.
