There’s a reason the autumn/winter bags seem familiar: last season’s monogram prints continue to be popular.
But fashion houses have updated details, sizes and colors to their offerings, starting with the classic quilted and top-handle bags.
In new collections, brands such as Chloe, Fendi, Marni, Miu Miu, Mulberry and Loewe have made big changes to the material and color of their top-handle bags.
Among them, the new member of Fendi’s Peekaboo family, the Peekaboo ISeeU bag, is sure to catch your attention. Featuring a soft pink nappa leather lining that is visible from the outside, it pairs with an additional customizable inner pocket, which can be hot-stamped with the owner’s initials.
The Mini Iris joins Mulberry’s Iris line. The ladylike shape is highlighted by the tiny size and enhanced with an elegantly braided top handle. Three limited-edition color-contrasting bags add pops of color to the season’s somber palette.
Quilted bags can be seen throughout new releases from Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors and Valentino.
The Valentino Garavani medium nappa Waffle shoulder bag is embossed with a rhombus pattern and embellished with small studs, freshening up a classic style.
Inspired by the bustling Soho district of New York, the Michael Michael Kors Soho large quilted leather shoulder bag features a gleaming push-lock fastening and chain-link strap that lend a high-shine glamour.
Monogram prints continue to be trending. Louis Vuitton has rolled out its new jacquard, Since 1854 textile, which features a new pattern that marries the house’s iconic monogram flowers and the number 1854.
No matter whether it’s the Dauphine MM handbag, the Neverfull MM tote, or the Petit Noe bucket bag, the new designs are certainly unique.
