Coming through strong this season, influenced by an overall obsession again with 90’s nostalgia, is the logo trend. This trend has done the full circle, being hot right now, to then totally not and now, once again cool, luxury and high-style. With Coach opting for a sophisticated charm in comparison to Karl Largerfeld’s street-style appeal, logomania is definitely back.

#2 The Nylon Need

Guess Nylon Bag

@gabiquitral

Building momentum as a go-to material this season discover our offering of Nylon bags. Coming in an array of shapes and styles this synthetic fabric is taking the handbag world by storm. Other than being exceptionally strong and pretty resistant this is the perfect fabric that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Key styles to note would be the larger shoulder shapes and the cute crossbody bags.

#3 Chain Detailing

Nunoo Chain bag

Possibly the IT trend for accessories… the chain has made a strong entrance across the catwalks. Solid, modern and certainly a statement, we are seeing it everywhere, whether it is featured as a handle or as focus detailing. Taking inspiration from the new collections from Coach, Hvisk and Furla you can see why we are using it to amp up your style credentials.

#4 Puff Pieces

Kurt Geiger Puffy Bag

Inspired by much of our existing wardrobe, puff pieces have taken front and centre stage for Autumn Winter. Seen coming through last winter, as we lived in our puffer coats, this season we are going for the matching bag. Coming in a large range of shapes and sizes these squishy styles add streetwear credibility to your look in a laid back luxe manner. From Furla, Nunoo and more you can find one to match whatever vibe you are looking for.

#5 Shearling Chic

Marc Jacobs Shearling Tote

@SweetCian

Perfect for adding autumnal warmth to your wardrobe as the colder months roll in, shearling is a super-cute, ultra-feminine trend. With that feel appeal aesthetic, they add a playful personality to your look. Seen from the high-end fashion houses to our more accessible brands this trend is across the board so take a look at the adorable pieces from Marc Jacobs and more.

#6 Think Tech

Ganni Tech Bags

@ganni

We all love our tech and recently we have invested in accessory pieces purely for accommodating our devices. Shop AirPods cases, phone bags and pouches in funky, luxury designs from brands such as Ganni, Kurt Geiger and Marc Jacobs. This trend is building momentum making these accessories a great gifting option whether you are buying for someone else or treating yourself.
