AW’21 bag trends – the shortlist

It was another digital fashion launch, the AW’21 runways were virtual. And with the lockdowns the impact on creativity could have left us with many reinterpretations of Bridgerton’s Regency romantic outfits, which seemed to be the only fashion being talked about at the start of 2021! However, the designers in New York, Milan, London and Paris treated us to textures galore, from chunky knits a la Chloé, to figure hugging sheer dresses and body suits, thank you Tom Ford! But what about the bags?

The best birthday gift bag!

And I don’t mean the paper ones with ribbon handles used as alternative wrapping or an elegant way to transport a gift. I’m talking about being confident enough to buy a friend or loved on a new bag all wrapped up as the gift! I’ve heard people shy away from buying someone a bag, with style and shape being so personal or being overwhelmed by the fashion trends of the season. One solution is to wrap up one of the classic designer bag icons. However, if the budget doesn’t allow or isn’t appropriate, here are six bags that just never go out of style, that won’t break the bank and will be coveted by other friends!

Bags of colour for SS’21

This spring and summer welcomes new shades of colour. And the good news doesn’t stop there.

Here are over 10 budget and designer bags of colour that are guaranteed to pop!

Yes it’s true, the baguette bag (thank you Fendi) has been showing up over the last couple of seasons. But what I’ve got for you is a much broader selection of the wider bag. Newsflash, you no longer have to opt for the flat sided baguette, there is so much more on offer!

Top of the weekend to you and your bag!

This Saturday Special is all about my favourite bags on instagram in January. And what I’ve loved is the resurgence of the top handle bag in smaller dimensions – suited to these days when we’re carrying less. What is great about a nano top handle bag (and I’m not often heard saying this) is that is can subtly smarten up a casual outfit – and let’s face it we’ve all been rocking the lounge look! So, what a lovely way to step into February, the month of love or if you’re into your pagan or Irish calendars, the official start of Spring – yes, for the Irish, the 1st of Feb is St Brigid’s Day, where traditionally the farmers start to sow seeds as it is the first day of Spring. Before I get too distracted by the many different cultural references, let’s get back to the bags – the top 10 of top handle bags for SS’21.
