With the huge influence of recession many designers have focused their attention on accessories rather than garments. Jewelry, shoes, handbags of this season are very unusual and bright.
Besides, they are present everywhere, in every single collection, worn with pride and an elegant air by all the top models on the catwalk.
The handbag is no longer considered by designers as a mere accessory that can be included or may be ignored. It has become a fundamental element of a woman’s look. Its mission is not limited to practicality; it is chic and complements a woman’s personality and style.
Trends of this season (Spring 2009/Summer 2009) very much, from highly practical huge totes to tiny eccentric clutches for evening wear. Every woman of fashion will be able to find something that suits her style and taste.
Wide, very comfortable bags in all colors imaginable – beige, white, black, metallic, gold, violet, orange, green, blue, etc. – will be extremely popular this season.
They are intended mostly for everyday wear: for shopping, work, college classes. Bags in this style are presented in collections by Versace, Bottega Veneta, Ralph Lauren, Sui, Diane von Furstenberg, Rossi, Valentino and others.
So comfortable and roomy!
Medium-sized handbags have found their place in lines from Dolce&Gabbana, La Perla, Missoni, Ferragamo, Armani, Michael Kors, Sonya Rykiel, Miu-Miu, etc.
These bags combine both comfort and elegance, grace and practicality. Some are rather simple, others are literally works of art.
Designers made different styles and designs.
There are a lot of tiny and medium sized clutches of ordinary design or very exclusive and sophisticated style. Clutches are widely presented in almost every collection.
Materials used vary from reptile leather of different colors to silk fabrics embellished with sequins. Great choice and pure femininy.
Look for clutches in Valentino, Pucci, Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan, Louis Vuitton’s collections.
Patchwork has entered the world of fashion last season.
There were just a few bags and shoes made in this style but they immediately became very popular. In the new season we see patchwork as a trend already. Now there are more of those designers who decided to introduce this new tendency into their collections: Dolce & Gabbana, Just Cavalli, Frisoni, Chloe, Balinciaga and others.
The classic strap handbag, worn on the shoulder is fashionable and practical as this allows you to have both your hands absolutely free.
The hues used are quite diverse: strong colors like violet, red and black or softer shades like white or beige. Pucci, Dolce&Gabbana, Burberry, Ralph Lauren have created bags of this kind for us.
As a subtrend of a strap bag I can call a bag with a chain instead of a usual strap. There are plenty of bags with chains. They look chic, feminine, unusual and classy.
I’m sure this trend will become one of the most favorite by fashionistas all over the world. Designers to work with this style are: Dolce&Gabbana, Pucci, Balenciaga, Ferragamo, Givenchi, etc.
Folk motif. This is the hottest trend Spring/Summer 2009 in clothes and I’m really happy that it’s spread to bags too.
Nice interesting models with unusual patterns and prints look wonderful. Sui, Choo and Fendi have enriched the whole bag variety with the traditions-based items.
Reptile leathers are so widely used in collections that I decided it should be a separate trend of the season. Different colors, various styles – to the most particular taste!
And the last but not the least, extraordinary bags! The more unusual your bag is the better. Extraordinary means everything that is very unlike other things, a standout, something that strikes your mind, for example the bags you see at the pictures below.
That is all, my dear friends, I hope you like the post and will determine easily which of the trends work best for you. Be stylish as ever!
