As international Fashion Weeks continue showcasing next year’s spring and summer inspiration, here’s something for the weekend for those who are feeling the seasons change but are seeking the trends for cooler temperatures. I love falling into autumn and winter as the fashion becomes richer not just in colour but texture. And the best bags on insta in September all celebrate a colour or texture to stand out. So if you’re sitting comfortably, here’s your quick fire edit of the five favourite bags for winter 2021.
Thank you to Lost Property London. They have just launched the vegan metallic Penrose bag – it’s made from recycled paper, well the fibres from the paper industry and mixed with organic plant based latex. So don’t be put off by the mention of paper and think this bag won’t hold more than your keys and lippy! This has strength and durability and of course the eye catching silver metallic. Top marks! Price £130.
Go for green!
Be bold and opt for a bright green in croc leather from the brand Coccinelle. The Beat bag comes in other leathers but the croco-print add the ideal winter texture. And as the cross body bag is being embraced (after a few seasons of shoulder and top handle bags) again, this is an ideal weekend bag. Price is around 200 euros mark.
Surely it’s winter when the shearling fabric returns and the Los Angeles bag from the London brand DeMellier does not disappoint. The monochromatic contrast of ivory and black; the shearing softness and braided handle. This bag is full on fusion and a great size to handle most daily handbag contents. Price £465.
Never on the fringe!
Swish into the next season with the Balayage handbag from Gum Design. Let the fringe do the talking! When you want more depth to your chocolate browns, head over to the Girly GUM Club, where it’s all about new season fashion and fun. Price around 150 euros.
Ethically made in Los Angeles, Hozen is always worth checking out. Their collections come along and always capture a bag for those who don’t necessarily follow the fashionista crowd but love a bit of bag action that is guaranteed to capture admiration. The mini Duffle bag is quilted giving it an extra texture to the circular dimensions. Who doesn’t fall for a neutral camel colour accessory in autumn/winter? Price $378.
That’s it, my five favourite bags on instagram for September 2021. These bags that will add dimension to anyone’s fall/autumn and winter wardrobes; the textures that are waiting to be touched.
Here’s to embracing the cooler temps arriving in the northern hemisphere.
