TRENDS FOR SPRING 2017; CHAPTER 5 HANDBAGS

BAGS FOR SPRING

Handbags are always a favorite fashion statement. The Spring and Summer shows for 2017 were all held early in the fall. The design houses put forth their new collections and  showed a great variety of handbags, I love the finishing touches of an outfit and one of those is a great bag.

Hence  designers from New York, London, Paris and Milan seldom agree on much but one common factor is handbags are the backbone of the luxury market.This is one of those areas where you must "Dress the Part". A fabulous bag speaks volumes and the arm candy you choose really defines your style.

My dears there's great news from the catwalks as far as bags are concerned. The  S/S 2017 collections showed a huge variety of bags . The designers really went all out and the result was innovative design . Hence we saw bags that in part out shone some of the rest of the collections.

Most noteworthy this spring was the incredible assortment of handbags. A few trends seemed to be present. We were witness to some cutting edge shapes , beautiful patterns as well as some timeless classics. While many different designs were  shown , let's look at the those trends.

  # 1. ITSY BITSY BABY BAGS
