Fall/winter 2019 handbag trends: Circular purses, slouchy totes and fuzzy bags were everywhere on the runways
We are living, it is said, in the midst of an It Bag Renaissance. While in the past, monster hits like Chloé's Paddington, Fendi's Baguette or Louis Vuitton's Multicolore Monogram collection mostly enjoyed an undivided spotlight, these days, there are several, littler monsters jockeying for a slice of the pie; on the fall/winter 2019 runways, one could find everything from geometric clutches to crossbodys shaped like baseball caps and clothing irons, the better to cater to fashion's many, many style tribes. We've compiled a list of the most interesting mini-movements for you below.
ALWAYS ROOM FOR MORE
FW19's large, structureless bags skew minimal in appearance. The same likely can't be said for their future contents, for where there is space, it shall be filled. If you're keen on sizing up, just make sure you have a good chiropractor in mind.
RIBBED, FOR YOUR PLEASURE
Raised, parallel surfaces imbue these bags with a sculptural quality; for a softer take, opt for 3.1 Phillip Lim's pleated number.
FULL CIRCLE (?)
Straightforwardly circular bags are on the wane, just like a full moon past its peak; look for subtler circular detailing on handles, for example, or increasingly popular demilune designs.
Yet another tactile trend. Bottega Veneta's unnatural-looking, sinister Muppet coils are a delightfully synthetic spin.
