Mini bag or over-sized clutch? Think extremes when you’re shopping for this season’s Italian designer handbags. Add some chains and tassels and you’re all set.
Summer is here and it’s time to update your look with the latest in designer handbag fashion. As Italian ladies know, this is an accessory that can complete an outfit for any occasion – and there’s a vast variety to choose from this season. Here are some of the most popular looks for Spring/Summer 2017.
This season, handbag design is all about opposites when it comes to size. At one end of the scale, the mini bag is rocking the catwalks. These are small wallet-sized bags that can be worn on the end of an incredibly long strap, often across the body. Some are even match-box sized and can contain little more than a lipstick or an iPhone. These are a fantastic way to make a statement and add the perfect finishing touch to that evening outfit for a night on the town.
However, operating at the other end of the spectrum is the over-sized bag. If you thought you’d already seen the over-sized bag before, think again. This season’s offering is bigger and better; in fact, some of them will cover most of your thigh as you strut along with them.
Of course, if both of these looks seem a bit extreme, there are of course women’s handbags that are finely crafted, yet a little bit more sensible in design which creates the perfect accompaniment to your daytime style.
Accessorise To The Max
Another popular trend with this season’s designer handbags is the tassels look. Following on from last summer’s look where accessories such as pompoms and charms were all the rage, this year’s bags prefer to carry a little bit of a fringe decoration. This is the ideal fashion for festival-goers or city shoppers alike and adds a chic rustic look to any summer trend.
The bucket shape is big in the designer handbag world this year and is brought together with a drawstring fastening. This is far from being merely a sports luxe look, there are also many evening styles that are rocking the bucket bag. This is a convenient style of bag – a quick pull of the strings and you have easy access to your wallet, make-up, mobile phone and all your other handbag essentials.
Chains are a no-brainer this season. This is a glamorous trend that simply oozes luxury. Although they made a splash on the catwalks of the Fall/Winter 2016 season, they’re not going away any time soon. You’ll find chains either as straps or adornments on a wide variety of Italian designer handbags this year.
Colours and prints are huge in handbag design in 2017. You’ll see many beautiful Italian bags that boast a floral print – either in a monochrome scheme, or in bolder summer tones such as coral or fuchsia, this is a strong look for the year. However, floral isn’t the only print that is on trend at the moment; there are also a wide range of eclectic and retro styles available in geometric shapes that deliver a serious ‘wow’ factor.
Whatever type of bag you’re looking for – daytime or evening, mini or large, you can be certain that Italian leather bags offer absolute timeless elegance and are a must-have item this summer.
