Wondering what the latest trends in designer handbags are this season? Think bright, primary colours - red, blue and yellow.
Tassels in all forms are making a huge statement in luxury handbags on the runway. From bright tassels to cooler hues, the options are endless. Designers of branded handbags are also using a lot of florals - with perforated leathers in floral shapes; even big flower-shaped bags have been seen on the runway for luxury handbag brands. Lady designer handbags are also becoming tech-savvy with the latest trends of post-modern luxury handbags equipped with pockets to hold your mobile phones.
Clutches with cartoon faces on it are also making a big statement in designer handbags this season. Other bizarre trends seen on the runway are Animal and Food shaped bags - from happy faces to tropical fruits and delightful baked goods, no other designer handbag has a personality like these.
One of the most common designer handbag trends seen on the runway is the structured bag, the one that is very clearly defined on all sides. Fanny Packs are also making a huge comeback this season as seen at the New York Fashion Week. Silver is big this year. Shimmering silver with a futuristic appeal has been the main look that everything from clothing to shoes has taken on.
Another common structure to the spring 2016 ladies designer handbags is the clutch, wherein there are no straps to hold onto or pull over the shoulder. Everything from the cupcakes to the face designed pieces come in clutch looks. While most luxury handbags for women have zippers or the like, one of the spring 2016 handbag trends we see on the runway shows is the fold-over effect, like an envelope clutch.
The snakeskin and alligator skin looks are also a part of the spring/summer 2016 branded handbag trends, coming in various different designs. We see some very graphic colors, stripes and designs appearing on the spring 2016 bags, versus the more muted we might like to carry on a daily basis. Another big trend coming up is the chunky chain-bag with loud metal detailing and hardware- adding the edge and luster to any look.
Embellished and crystal-encrusted clutches are another rising trend in purses for women this season. Bold, big and bright stones have been seen on smaller clutches and handbags. Metallic stones and crystals are also very big on the runway. Back-packs are also making a come-back this season - coming in big and small sizes and various other designs.
Smaller camera bags were also seen on the spring-summer runway on 2016. These bags are very structured and easy to carry with ample space for all your essentials.
Another bag that has been seen season after season is the bucket bag. This bag has been on the runway for a long time now and will continue to be a favorite.
Furs and ruffles have also been seen to hit the run way in a big way - on both, smaller and larger tote bags. Backpacks have been given a chic makeover on the runway this year with over the top gold detailing and quilt designs.
All in all, this season has seen some age-old favorites along with futuristic designer handbags on the runway. From mini-bags to backpacks, the trends this season have a wide variety of bags and clutches to choose from for any occasion.
