This is the last ‘something for the weekend’ of 2020, which showcases my five favourite bags on instagram in the last month. Saving you the scrolling of many fashion feeds on the ‘gram, this Sunday Special brings a little added value for your viewing. These five fashion bags, whilst featured right in the middle of autumn/winter, will work brilliantly with next season’s trends. These bags will turn heads. So let’s get straight to it!
From Germany, from Aigner Munich, is the box bag Alexis. This bellflower blue is a stand out pastel colour which was spotted on many of the runways for spring/summer. And if you check out the colour trends for SS’21, one might say it is very close to cerulean (and many of us will remember the education provided by Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada. Price 549 euros.
To embellish or not to embellish? Well Shrimps have not held back, with a photo embellish moment too – here’s Queen Elizabeth II of England sporting the soft black Ellery bag with a lattice of beads – ahead of her time! One of the SS’21 trends is texture and the top tip is to reflect the same or similar texture in your outfit. This slightly oversize bag is in the sale now, 30% off, £315.
This little snap frame beauty comes from Miu Miu and is called the Belle nappa leather mini bag. The price isn’t so mini at £1010 but for those who know this designer brand, know quality is guaranteed. An ideal bag for those who are going to rock the big shoulders look this spring and summer.
This bold tote bag can be found under the men’s section at Bottega Veneta. However, with the oversize tote bag trend firmly in place for this forthcoming fashion season, this bag works for both men and women’s SS’21 wardrobes. This is in new rubber, still with the statement woven pattern and extra metal sliders to adjust the volume of the bag. Price £940.
One of the trends for spring and summer is the sheer look – think mesh or slightly see-through. This can be difficult to do with a bag without showing off all your personal bits. But don’t despair, one of the ways to achieve this in your bag, is to create the illusion and by opting for a laser cut bag – it, suggests see-through, but quality lining keeps your contents hidden. Tory Burch brings us the Lee Radziwill double bag, which comes in two sizes from £665 to £1040 (the larger one featured here, showcased by the designer herself).
There you have it, the designers who are rocking bags that can work next season’s trends; with brands from across Europe and The States. Need a quick fix of the women’s fashion trends of SS’21, look no further. But may I take a moment to say top marks go to Shrimps for giving and sharing a regal vibe this month!
