Pretty in pink right now

Up here in the northern hemisphere, I’m seeing more and more pink appearing in the stores for this spring and summer. The good news, is you don’t need to channel your inner Naomi Campell as seen at the Versace S’22 runway show, looking fabulous in a pink trouser suit, to channel your inner fashionista. This much pink up top and below the waistline may not be the preferred choice for everyone. The alternative is to grab a pink bag and still look pretty and on-trend this year. Here’s a quick edit from some cities in Europe where there’s lots of pink bag inspiration for you, with lots more over on insta @thebagwhispers_.

Fashion joins forces

The monthly edit of fashion bag inspiration for February, from instagram was due last week. And with the fashion shows previewing AW’22/3 in full force, the month’s round-up is always a bumper one. However, on 24 February the news came through of the invasion by Russia into Ukraine and since then it has been 9 days of shocking headlines. Breaking with tradition, the following fashion inspiration edit isn’t the top 5 bags of the month but instead, a spotlight on five of the fashion brands that have come out showing a different kind of force, support for relief in Ukraine. If you are looking for ways to support, here are some destinations being championed by fashion brands.

Whilst it was tough to ignore the eyes of the tigers, I still hope you like the edit. If you’re sitting or standing comfortably, my something for the weekend is a quick two minutes’ scroll of the bags rocking some of this year’s spring/summer trends.

It’s the time of year when a very specific bag size and shape is required. Not too big yet not too small. With or without a strap – depending on how much dancing with your hands in the air! Yes, it’s time to dust off the small but mighty bag, that’s got a bit of sparkle or colour pop. Slim and trim to hold the phone, lippyđź’‹, bank cards and keys. Something for the weekend brings you a party bag edit to inspire for the holiday season, be it Christmas or New Year.

This Sunday is a round up of the bags on instagram in the summer month of June (if you’re in the northern hemisphere), however, the month’s round up is a special one; it’s the five bag designers with sustainability at their heart.

Pretty in pastels on insta this month.

It’s not a surprise for fashion in pastels to appear in spring/summer. Last year we saw the resurgence of lilac accessories. Good news, this year, any hue of pastel will be on trend, as long as you co-ordinate with your outfit. And just like Max Mara who showed the leather bag in their SS21 fashion show, pretty does not mean small and discreet – this year any shape will go. Here are my five favourite pastel bags spotted on insta this month. Enjoy the inspiration from April.

Something for the weekend and the theme is wide!

Before we say goodbye to February, let’s have a look at my five favourite bags spotted on insta this month. And this round up of all the lovely bags on insta presented an unexpected bag shape, the baguette bag but with that je ne sais quoi! 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.
