The best in fashion from around the world


Spring/Summer 13 Handbag Trends – A Guest Blog

It’s approaching the time of year where we can start thinking about our Spring/Summer handbag purchase. With some new handbags already available to purchase and others offering a pre-order service, it’s time to swat up on the SS13 trends and decide which style you want to be rocking this spring.

Black & white minimalism

Black and white are not two colours often associated with the spring/summer collections, so designers have had to work extra-hard to get their bags to stand out this season. Chanel, Balenciaga and Givenchy are all rocking the black and white trend but white alone is also brightening up the fashion world. Designers have turned to the clean purism of white, and white handbags are quickly becoming as big a statement as a black bag. So, be adventurous, shake-up your look with black and white monochrome patterns or soften up your style with all white.


Bold Brights

Hot orange, red, yellow and pinks are all blazing colours this spring. And there’s nothing like the colours of the sunset to put a smile on our face. Forget those shy pastel colours and spice up your wardrobe with some daring colour-blocking bags in bright shades. But there’s no need to stop there. Cool, serene blues such as cobalt, turquoise and azure are calming alternatives. So, whether you want to parade a hot pink bag such as the shoulder bag by Anya Sushko or the cool cobalt blue flap bag by Sophie Hulme, ensure you dust off those dull and grey winter colours and opt for something a little more striking this spring.



Beaded clutches, embroidery and embellishment are what it is all about for evening bags this summer. Etro, Lanvin and Emilio Pucci have all been showing off their oriental inspired designs on the catwalks as of late and we have to say we are impressed. The importance of the Far East in luxury markets is forever increasing and we think it’s time we nabbed a bit of their effortless style for ourselves.


Watch out for…

Besides from our featured bag trends, sixties geometrics, stripes, florals and over-sized bags will also be filling the shelves this February. So, keep your eyes peeled and pick up your hot SS13 handbag in plenty of time. And, don’t forget to visit for more style advice and inspiration.
