Bags – certainly, the most important accessory of the coming season. Gwen Stefani, the soloist of No Doubt, who not only sings, but also sews LAMB clothes, said in an interview with Vogue that she is opening a bag-making line: “Now everyone is crazy about bags!”
And she is right – if in image advertising in the past “Gloss” look focused on shoes or dresses, now the focus of the bag.
Fashion bags become the most important part of the female image
Although, perhaps, they just can not be missed – because the most fashionable bags in this season are not just big, but very large. XXXL, King size, “I carry everything with me”, “bags for housewives” – as soon as they are called.
This fashion has so strongly captured the female half of humanity, that doctors already recommend not to carry trunks daily, so as not to earn curvature of the spine.
In fashion, leather. It is advisable to have pythons or crocodiles. And if not theirs, then certainly matte, “clasped”, perforated. Although, if you want, you can and “metallic.” Popular models of textile or synthetic cosmic, steel shades (Fig. 1).
Of particular note are silver, sand, brick, brown, blue – indigo and electric, and white (Fig. 2). Red is still in fashion, although you should always have a red handbag, as well as a black lacquer – despite the fact that this season the last few have lost their positions: they can be seen only in Chloé in new collections. The novelty of the season – the color of “mushrooms” or “morels” – a mixture of beige tones with brownish-gray (Fig. 3).
The trapezoid in all variants is elongated upwards or broad at the base, with rounded corners, strapped like a sack, or fastened with a buckle. The main thing is geometry, volume and functionality. Welcome rivets, large metal buckles, belts. Handles – round, small – in no case straps, firm.
In this season, half-measures are not in favor – either XXXL, or XXXS. Tiny handbags, came into use as “clutches” – from ang. clutch – grab (Figure 4, 5). An excellent alternative to the baulam – after all, the bag becomes an accessory to the dress, not a storage room.
Legendary bags named after female legends – Kelly, Birckin from Hermes, Novak from McQueen, which by and large are not out of fashion ever, this season are especially relevant precisely because of their impressive sizes. And the scandal of the podiums from Louis Vuitton (Fig. 6) is a bag of a Turkish shuttle, although not made from polyethylene fibers, but made of the highest class of leather, despite the cosmic cost, the must-have for the bravest women of fashion.
