Spring Summer Autumn and Winter, any season is a great excuse to look at your favourite brands bags as each demends a different kind.
What are some of the best new designer bags available? Leading designers like Marc Jacobs and Diane von Furstenberg are present as usual, while there are some excellent new bags from brand such as Celine, Valentino, and Chloe to consider; some of the best new designer bags include clutches, totes, and some more unusual creations, such as Stella McCartney’s gem-embellished clutch. It’s worth looking at these designer bags, and more, in some extended detail below.
The red leather clutch bags from Celine have been a favourite amongst buyers over the past few years, and draw their appeal from their simple lines and practicality; the sleek lines and size of the most recent Celine bag means that it’s ideal for accessorising and matching up to outfits, and represents a bold statement in its own right.
Another brand associated with statement handbags, the most notable addition to Valentino’s bags this year will be a highly structured bag with transparent PVC and studded leather; with a small lock and an adjustable metal chain, Valentino’s small bags come highly recommended.
A red bag that maintains Jacobs’ reputation for always being on trend, the Marc by Marc series bags tend to go for larger shoulder carrying series, and follow on from the popularity of Jacobs’ ‘Antonia’ bowling bags; look out for red and black additions to the Jacobs series.
The new bags from Kors place an emphasis on totes and classic black bags, which make them ideal for travelling in luxury; brown leather totes also make up a key part of Kors’ brand appeal.
One of the best new bag series of the season, Diane Von Furstenberg’s creations always place a special focus on structure, with a distinctive studded finish one of the key parts of the Spring and Summer collection.
This season’s Vuitton bags are worth watching out for as the result of their Damier material, and for the signature craftmanship that always makes the brand’s bags stand out; other new bags use tuffetage for a carpet effect, as well as adding in sparkling sequins to some smaller purses.
New bags from Dior this season include pale pink colour schemes, particularly for ‘Miss Dior’ bags, as well as lambskin materials and intricate stitching; the latest Dior bags made a recent appearance as part of Jennifer Lawrence’s red carpet outfits during Hollywood’s award season.
Mini bags from Chanel include Mondrian influenced designs - these are comprised of yellow, blue, and red colours, and provide a complement to Chanel’s other vintage inspired designs.
Shoulder style handbags are an important part of Chloe’s appeal for Spring and Summer, with pale pinks, classic blacks, and red colours making them stand out as some of the most practical, roomy handbags on offer this year.
You can rely on McCartney to deliver something different, and her gem clutch epitomises her style - the bag represents a giant gem shape, with clear lucite options for creating an even stronger impression than usual for the brand.
