Key handbag trends to try out this season

Last month saw the fashion community fascinated by stories from Fashion Week as it travelled across the four global fashion capitals of New York, London, Milan and Paris, revealing what the Spring/Summer 2015 season has in store for fashionistas and high streets the world over. Here at Fiore, however, we're preparing for the near future and helping you to stay on trend throughout the current season. Autumn/Winter 2014 promises to be an eclectic mix of fashion designs and textures, so we've decided to explore how best to channel the biggest trends into our most-loved accessory.

Chain GangLulu Guinness Black Verity handbag at Fiore

This season it’s all about the small details, as chains are being used as a chic design touch on everything from coats to dresses. As we already know, Lulu Guinness has a fantastic eye for details when it comes to her unique handbag designs, and the gorgeous Black Verity handbag, featuring a stunning gold-chain, is a perfect example! In addition to this season’s coveted gold-chain detail, this bag comes complete with a lipstick charm and a Lulu Guinness logo plaque that work together to create a beautiful black-and-gold design aesthetic that combines effortless style with a sleek, modern edge.

Winter Brights

Another key trend this season is the use of neon colours to break up the gloom of winter’s more muted tones. On the catwalks, designers used varying combinations of bright acid colours in their clothing designs, resulting in a trend that’s perfectly suited to accessories by allowing you to showcase a small splash of neon in your wardrobe without necessarily having to commit to complete colour coverage. No handbag demonstrates this more than Lulu’s Magenta Verity Bag, with the glossy leather finish making a more subtle statement and the additional chain detail once again ensuring you’ll stay on trend all season.

The Tiny Trunk

Fiorelli Phoebe Across Body Bag in Sage at FioreLed by Louis Vuitton’s new creative director, Nicholas Ghesquière, the Autumn/Winter catwalks featured a number of structured box bags that offered just enough space to fit the daily essentials whilst remaining stylish and on-trend. The Phoebe Sage Across Body Bag by British brand Fiorelli provides an ideal example of just how this trend can be channelled across numerous types of handbags, and, while neither structured nor ‘boxy’, this bag is nevertheless stylish, adjustable and, most importantly, small enough to fit the tiny brief! If you’re looking for a brighter option, Fiorelli also offer this bag in Magenta, allowing you to tick off two key trends in one tiny, trendy step.

Retro References

The Sixties and Seventies are in the midst of a major fashion revival right now, one that looks set to continue into next year given the presence of vintage-inspired pieces at last month’s Fashion Week shows, so what better time is there to invest in the quintessential satchel? Yoshi satchels are the ultimate example of how to pair traditional, retro design with gorgeously modern and vibrant colours, and we absolutely adore the Belforte Satchel in blue for a subtle option that still offers a splash of colour the catwalks would be proud of.

The season of the handbag

Handbags are certainly the most versatile and non-committal way of staying on trend with a minimal amount of effort – just throw a bag on your shoulder and you can instantly channel any of this season’s style trends.

This season allows for a huge amount of creativity in the style of handbag we wear, as well as the different ways in which to wear it, and we’d love to see how you’re styling this versatile accessory!
