Sunday Special – the bags on insta this April

Something for the weekend is back for April and instagram has been trawled.  And it definitely needs scrolling as so many feeds are less about fashion ideas but inspiration for life – a reflection of these unusual times. Today’s Sunday Special though are the bags spotted on insta this week that will rock a summer fashion trend.  There’s something for everyone, whichever hemisphere you find yourself – so let’s say thanks (a virtual high five) to the handbag designers who are doing what they do best, keeping us inspired for when we can fully embrace the summer. 

Zest for life!

Reach for a bag in either orange or green citrus shades.  Go bold with the green leather Mini Flap handbag from Bimba y Lola, price £255.  The fashion company is still open for business online.  Gracias to this fun and always surprising fashion brand from Spain.

Knotted up!

If you love a monochromatic look in the summer, here’s the black handbag that will work if wearing trousers or dress.  It has that nod to the rope handle trend that is appearing in many fashion houses.   The brand von Holzhausen is from the west coast USA and has an ethical heart.  The Mini Handheld is made from recycled plastic bottles and completely biodegradable in a landfill.  Price $350.

Totally totes!

Oversized tote bags are one of this summer’s looks.  Here I’ve got three that should cover all situations.  First up, from the Scandinavian team Little Liffner, who combine elegant bags with a hint of street style.  Here is the Mega Loop bucket bag in croc embossed calf leather.  Price 507.59 euros with free worldwide shipping.

Now for a brand that is well known for its sandals, Studio Amelia, has one foot in London UK and one in Sydney Australia.  However, their bags, found on many reputable designer websites such as netaporter or Browns Fashion are becoming more well known.  This is the 3.3 shopper with four colour options in vegan croc white or ecru and nude or white leather.  There’s a 40% discount at the moment, so enjoy this bag at weekends, shopping, or at the beach.  Price AUS$384.

Finally, introducing the Sandy bag from Clare V.  Whilst this isn’t particularly oversized, it scores overwhelmingly in the design and form – string or crochet bags are to be found in the collections from many of the premium designers including Prada.  The Sandy comes in green or five other colour options including a gold and black option.  Priced £118.72.  There’s free shipping in the US (international orders will have varying taxes and delivery options).
