The Playful Clutch
Injecting a bit of fun into fashion, the playful clutch was seen at the likes of House of Holland and Moschino for AW15 – think bold colours, quirky shapes and graphic prints. Lulu Guinness is our go-to brand for this trend; her unusual designs are unrivalled in the world of fashion, and this Red Lips Perspex Clutch is the perfect statement-making piece that will add a bit of personality to any look.
Proving that grey doesn’t have to be boring, this season it has been updated in different tones, textures and finishes to create a sophisticated colour palette. Whether it’s metallic, soft, steel, or blue-toned, grey is a colour you need in your wardrobe for AW15. The classic Aspinal of London Marylebone Mini Tote is the perfect bag for this trend. Made from the finest Italian leather, the metallic silver finish would look great with a sleek black or navy outfit.
Nothing quite says autumn like a dark, rich burgundy, and this season it was seen everywhere from Burberry to Givenchy. The Cambridge Satchel Company has nailed this trend with its Push Lock Cross Body Bag in Port. With a structured silhouette, this bag has a vintage-inspired style that the brand is renowned for, and is the perfect size for a day out in the city.
The ‘70s trend is set to stay for AW, and this season it’s all about luxe boho – the ‘haute hippie’, if you will. Fringing is a back part of this trend, and a fringed bag is a great way of injecting it into your wardrobe. For a luxury, contemporary take on the ‘70s, look no further than the Rebecca Minkoff Julian Backpack. Featuring silver toned hardware and a subtle fringe trim, this versatile backpack can easily be styled for day and night.
A tan handbag is an essential in every woman’s collection; this classic colour will work with every outfit and can be worn all year round. The Paul Smith Accessories Hobo Bag is a great tan option for AW, with its on-trend design, luxury Italian leather finish, subtle signature branding and large shape. Wear with jeans and an oversized knit for daytime chic, or soft tailoring for evening.
The Bucket Bag
Tying in with the ‘70s trend, the bucket bag is one the top shapes of the season. The perfect mix of slouchy and structured, the Lauren Ralph Lauren Crawley Drawstring Bag is a sleek take on this trend, and features a top handle and cross body strap for versatility. Wear with a minimal jumpsuit or long sleeved maxi dress for a contemporary ‘70s look.
