Darlings, CC is so excited to introduce a special spring handbag forecast by blogger extraordinaire James Michael White of Bagpoor!
To quote one of my favorite Project Runway hopefuls, Santino Rice, “lighten up, it’s just fashion.” That’s the approach that most prominent designers are taking with this spring’s handbag collections. The luxurious neutrals and ladylike classics that took center stage on the fall runways have been replaced with bold designs that will undoubtedly get you noticed.
Bright Hues – Make a statement this season with bold color choices. Sophisticated designers like Oscar de la Renta, Bottega Veneta, and Jason Wu incorporated this trend into their spring collections, in the form of extravagant exotic skins.
Boho Glam – Quite a few designers are taking a decidedly casual approach for spring, employing fringe detailing to achieve the ultimate bohemian chic look. Check out these fringed cross-body options from Roberto Cavalli, Chrisitan Dior, and Emilio Pucci.
Glimmering Metallics – Inject a touch of glamour into your spring wardrobe with a show-stopping metallic clutch. These shimmering selections were featured in the Dries Van Noten, Gucci, and Armani Privé runway shows.
Crisp Whites – Embrace effortless minimalism with these stark white styles from Celine, Chloé, and Alexander Wang. Note the clean lines and gold-tone hardware.
Whichever handbag styles you choose, don’t be afraid to take a risk and have fun with fashion this spring.
