Whilst a few instagram feeds are sharing the trends from the AW19 catwalks, I’m not ready to even consider shopping for Autumn with 3 months of summer ahead and lots of sunshine (I hope)! So to help you navigate the heaps of insta bag inspiration, Something for the Weekend has filtered like a demon and brought to you classic summer bags. Here are my 5 favourite summer bags from the last week on instagram.
And what makes a great summer bag this season? One that is woven. So if you are sitting comfortably…here’s my countdown of woven bags:
In at no.5
And fresh out of the blocks, a handbag design student recently graduated, Alison Chang hails from the Savannah College of Art Design (with locations in Georgia USA, Hong Kong and France). Spotted by @handbagdesigner on instagram, this bag has a woven sac inside its structural sides. Pop over to instagram and follow @alisonchangdesign to watch how this new talent grows.
Number 4 in the list
Coach are on it this summer. They’ve taken one of this summer’s colours, the neutral tan and combined it with straw in two different bag styles. Choose from the Parker or Dreamer bags. These two will look great against a cream coloured flowing long maxi summer dress.
Mid table, at no.3
One of the SS’19 bag trends is an oversized tote bag. Say hola to Lulu Guinness on location in Cuba. Go shopping the for day’s groceries or head straight to the beach. The celebration bag is going to serve you well, whatever your day’s activities. Cuba que linda!
Spot no. 2
From the sustainable brand Bottletop, created by artisans in Brazil, enjoy the Amazona bag, here in gold (but available in other colours). Using metal tabs hand crocheted, lined with an organic cotton and trimmed with a leather strap, from Amazon Zero Deforestation sources, this bag will fully support your eco credentials. Shop online or on London’s fashionable Regent Street.
At the top spot, no.1
The eye catching Pablo bag in striking black and white with a bold weave, is from Clare Vivier, in LA on the west coast USA. With its lovely long woven straps too, this bag is just asking to be taken shopping alongside a cool white blouse and jeans. This bag is on trend, with lots of personality. Take me out now!
