Soon we will be able to wear clothes from the spring-summer 2022 shows, but there is one item from the runway that we can start adding to our wardrobes imminently: handbags. Ideal for impatient types, handbags are the easiest way to kick-start your new-season capsule. And seeing as bags were at the bottom of our shopping priorities at the start of 2021, due to the pandemic and spending time indoors, now's the moment to make up for lost time.
Luckily for said impatient types, we've discovered that many of the top handbag trends we spotted on the runway are already on the shopping circuit. What are these trends, we hear you ask? Well, they're a versatile bunch.
Texture remains a key accessory aesthetic, though the borg and shearling fabrications we're seeing for winter will morph into basket weaves and crochet. That said, you'll be able to continue toting your party bags well into next year, as fancy finishes including rhinestones and fringing were still all the rage. What's life without a bit of sparkle, after all?
