Trendy bags of the Fall-Winter season are increasingly moving away from the traditions of restraint and minimalism, fearlessly adapting for the most insane designer fantasies. Very small clutches coexist in one collection with huge tote bags and shoppers. Soft fabric and leather purses are next to hard evening box-like clutches. Along with smooth elegant business bags we have girlish accessories with voluminous appliqués.
Weird unusual shapes
It’s never too late and not ashamed to fall into childhood, even if you are not not 5 or even 10. The bags in the form of toys, even plush, unexpectedly burst into our fashionable reality, hanging in the air a reasonable question – how to wear them properly?
Silver metallic and sparkling glitter
The sparkling glitter dazzles with its radiance not only in trendy Fall-Winter shoes 2017-2018, but also in handbags. The most appropriate silvery glitter is combined with a textured surface in evening clutches, which will complement the minimalistic outfit.
Appliqués, patches, embroidery
Huge and tiny, these handbags look like they were puzzled by schoolgirls at the lesson of handcrafting, honing their skills of cutting and sewing. Many of these pieces look deliberately untidy, with sloppy appliqués and loose threads. But this is the modern chic, which will be appreciated by girls, tired of smooth minimalistic business bags tote bags.
For business ladies, the size of the bag matters. But designer brands do not want to make life easier for consumers of grocery shopping, but they rely on impressive volumes for classic models for everyday wear. In Fall-Winter season 2017-2018, the shopper and the tote bags become immense, and some of them seem to be combined with down jackets.
Faux fur handbags
Decoration with faux and genuine fur for the winter season seems to be a quite obvious trend, which can not be said about feathers. However, we have already seen on the podium a sufficient number of evening and cocktail dresses, richly decorated with long and magnificent feathers. Therefore, we can confidently say that clutches with the same decor will find a use in a women’s wardrobe.
Until this season, we knew the “baguette”, which was popularized by Fendi. New female baguettes have hypertrophied features, handbags, that are extending to unimaginable sizes, becoming more trendy rather than practical.
Among the Fall-Winter 2017-2018 fashion trends, there is a tendency that makes jackets and down coats look like blankets. Bags did not stay away from it, and also adapted these interesting features.
Cute tiny bags
Along with huge handbags there is a range of accessories, similar to wallets and purses. They can be worn separately or in combination with standard bags, creating an unusual multi-layered image.
Rivets and studs
Metal fittings always wrap the look into the brutal rock-n’roll mood. Both in shoes, and in bags silver or gold-plated metal studs are here to create texture, destroying the monolithic smooth leather.
Fringe and tassels
Long thick fringe or flirty tassels give the bag some dynamism and make the fashion look a little bit frivolous and unpretentious. This is especially appreciated in the strict smooth business models of tote bags, as well as in backpacks and cowboy style cross body bags.
From the side it seems that a round-shaped bag is completely impractical and inconvenient for modern fashionistas. Then why pay attention to these particular accessories? In this Fall-Winter season, the smoothing of the bag corners is especially noticeable against the backdrop of hard box-bags and baguettes.
Frame handbags and retro purses
Vintage looking frame handbags were in vogue in the 30-40’s, and since now the retro style has returned to us in a modern guise, then these purses take their places in our closet to be combined with feminine dresses and suits.
If you want to buy a beautiful handbag that will attract attention, don’t look only at the “body” of an accessory. The Fall-Winter season shows how popular are the designers’ accents on the handle.
Large vertical shopper bags
New comfortable shoppers don’t suffer from minimalism, which, for this style of bags, can be considered a disadvantage. Stylish shopper bags keep the vertical position and design smoothness, as trying to fit into any fashion look.
Python print bags are becoming eye-catching and attracting even a trend-trained look, however, still being classic and basic element for handbags.
Where the snake skin is, there is a crocodile leather too, because these two reptiles traditionally follow each other. And if the trendy python makes bags aggressive and spicy, crocodile print is a basic for classic elegant accessories, like minimalist tote handbags.
Fall-Winter season 2017-2018 proclaims the leopard total look one of the hottest new trends. And this means that dresses, coats and shoes with this animalistic predatory pattern are clearly not enough. Leopard bag is an accessory that seems self-sufficient, and can bring to life any ascetic outfit.
Rigid box handbags and evening purses
They aren’t that comfortable to carry in hands, but they have the design that catches the eye and seem irreplaceable to complete the evening and cocktail look.
Elegant suede handbags
There were times when a bag of genuine suede had a very limited functionality, some bought them only as an evening accessory. Now we see an expansion of designs for the suede handbags. Fashion collections include suede totes, shopper bags, elegant briefcases, business bags and backpacks.
