New Year, new you – this is what I hear everywhere. Thankfully, not all of us have to die on a treadmill, some will revive themselves and their wardrobe with a sexy, new bag! Spring summer 2015 seduces us with functional and chic handbags ranging from free-spirit backpacks and sporty totes to coloured satchels and my favourite chain bags. See the best bag trends and styles for summer 2015.
Backpacks are still in the game. Surprised? This spring we are all coming back to school in style! The fashion backpacks we have seen in Jean Paul Gaultier are pretty roomy so you won’t have problem packing some spare clothes. Some designers however suggest more stylish versions of a backpack: made of textured leather (Ece Gozen) or with chain-adorned back sleeves (Ayse Deniz Yegin).
Medium sized clutch purses – this is another spring summer 2015 bag must-have. But what actually means medium? Just make sure your bag is enough for an iPad. Carry your oversized clutch day or night under the arm for a touch of luxury. From many different styles we saw on the runways, the ones worth your attention are: the most convenient clutch with a handheld strap (Valentino), sexy boho-inspired clutch with a fringe detail (Givenchy), and monochrome croc-embossed clutch (Lavin).
This party season slowly transitioning into award season, I have seen countless chain strap handbags. Each of them looked like a sophisticated arm candy, very stylish but also helping their owner (models, bloggers, celebs) whenever they need to stay hands free. As of Spring Summer 2015 runway, chain strap is the trendy detail that has graces small and medium-sized bags we have seen in Louis Vuitton, and Elie Saab. Have a closer look at Chanel fantasy purses adorned with a chain strap.
We all know that satchel is a must-have bag type for real ladies. Trademark handhold straps give it a classic aesthetic that is equally chic dressed up or down. Besides, there is no better compliment to retro fashion than a satchel. As seen in Jean Paul Gaultier, Valentino, Louis Vuitton and Roland Mouret.
Jean Charles De Castelbajac‘s spring 2015 fashion show was widely commented in fashion magazines thanks to the upbeat, sporty spirit of the collecion. Bold coloured sporty clothes, visor sunglasses and one of a kind Plexiglas-handle bags were as modern as shocking.
Classic purse goes glam with a mini size. The tiniest purse is perfect bag dress up your simple LBD and to put all of your going-out essentials in the palm of your hand. From Manish Arora and Stella McCartney to Chanel and Nina Ricci, everyone presented their version of the mini purse.
