New season collections from our favourite designers often mean additions are made to our wish-lists and this Autumn/Winter is no exception! Bags are without a doubt our favourite accessory and even if we can’t afford that fur handled Miu Miu, it can certainly inspire our Autumn wardrobe. Here, we pick some of AW/17’s best bags…
An oversized bag is a must-have for every season; perfect for every day use, a gorgeous tote will be a worthwhile investment. We can almost feel the buttery soft, smooth calfskin used to craft that Cèline bag!
Who doesn’t love a statement bag? The rich colours, luxurious adornments and faux fur seen at Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Miu Miu will inspire more than just our handbags this Autumn! If you haven’t seen Chanel’s space-themed AW/17 show, it’s definitely worth a watch; monochrome, metallics, glitter and that Rocket Bag – which is set to be one of the fashion house’s most coveted pieces.
There are some brands we can always rely on for edgy glamour and in their AW/17 Collections we saw dresses adorned in tassels and studs at Balmain, leather and tweed from Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen and (what seemed to be) all black everything on the runway with Alexander Wang. Be inspired by chainmail, leopard print, studs and add a kick ass flare to your new season wardrobe.
If simple and chic is more your thing, check out the understated designs from VB, Mulberry, Dior and Hermès. Victoria Beckham has been inspired by her recent collaboration with Estèe Lauder and created a vanity box style bag that can be worn on the body or elegantly held by hand. Whilst Johnny Coca at Mulberry has tapped into the brands classic English heritage and created structured bags in rich Autumnal leathers.
And that’s it, our pick of AW/17’s best bags – which will you be adding to your wish-list for the new season?
