Bag shapes-Handbags autumn winter 2015

This autumn we’re looking at barrel bags, totes, clutch purses, bucket totes and bags made out of dyed shearling, as shearling will be in this year for both men and women.

 

However, as long as your handbag has at least some of the key themes for this autumn and winter, you can get away with different shapes and not stick regimentally to what’s been dictated by the catwalk and the high street.

Designer trends-Handbags autumn winter 2015

On the catwalk there was plenty of shape, style and colour with something for everyone. Lots of unusual shapes and novelty designs. There was still some 70s left over from the summer, and some sharp colours from an 80s palate’s that’ll be coming into play this autumn.

 

We’re talking patches, which as you remember was big for men with patchwork on jeans, as well as jackets. Handbags came with colourful patches on one bag, there was 70s fringing and plenty of suede, with dyed shearling and embroidery.

 

Valentino was hot on intricate embroidery, with gemstones from Dolce & Gabbana and studs from Alexander Wang.

 

As well as patches, colours came in different shapes, shades and sizes on clutch purses to bags.

 

There were also big bright bucket totes in yellows and pinks and bags with elaborated handles from Stella McCartney.

The catwalks for Handbags autumn winter 2015

The catwalks gave us a rainbow of colours and patterns from Dior, Prada, Chanel, Marc Jacobs, and Fendi. and it was evident that the new autumn/winter bags weren’t for the faint hearted.

On the high street, River Island have brightly coloured purses, big slouchy totes, suede and fringes in puce and black.They’d clearly taken notes from the catwalk with coloured patchwork, embroidery, prints faux fur and black tapestry prints.
