Handbags which were once an accessory of practicality have thrown all of these useful attributes to the wind, providing an assortment of lust worthy arm candy from oversized hobos to the micro cross body for Fall/Winter 14/15. The coming season is heavily focused on what you can hold rather than carry with XL duffels being used as clutches and traditional evening silhouettes such as the minaudiere being used day to night. The battle between the soft and structured tote continues with more styles taking on geometric detailing in both categories. Menswear has a huge impact in handbags as it has in all other product categories in accessories, making the attache one of the hottest styles for the coming season.
ATTACHE: The attache gets its roots from that of menswear. With this briefcase style making cameos from New York to Milan it is certain to be a top seller for Fall / Winter 14/15.
BOWLER: An easy silhouette for any woman to carry, the bowler bag becomes a more important style as we begin to see the traditional tote fade out for Fall/Winter 14/15.
MINAUDIERE: The minaudiere has become a timeless handbag working with any look from day to night. This is among the hottest styles for Fall / Winter 14/15.
MINI CROSS-BODY: The cross-body silhouette has been around for as long as we can remember but for the Fall/Winter 14/15 season we see the bags shrinking down to micro sizes making it the perfect no-fuss bag.
SOFT TOTE: The soft tote is one of the most popular silhouettes for Fall/Winter 14/15. A top handle and cross-body dual strap add practicality to this oversized silhouette.
