Spring is coming, and we can’t wait to stow away those heavy coats and bring out some fabulous new spring outfits. And accessories-wise, we’re spoilt for choice!
Here are our top picks from the handbag collections that were showcased this season:
1. The Bottega Veneta tote
This season is all about nude colors and natural finishes, and what better to wear with that look than this gorgeous oversize tote? No matter how many mini clutches come and go in fashion, the tote will be an eternal favorite simply because it is so practical when you’re on the go all day. And in this super-versatile shade of ecru, this tote is one you can carry with just about anything.
2. The Alexander McQueen biker bag
Biker chic is huge this spring, the natural successor to the military look, and biker boots and bags are a must-have this season. We’re loving this Alexander McQueen cross-body bag which is part cute, part edgy and all-over irresistible!
3. The fringed Dior clutch
Fringes and tassels are everywhere right now, from earrings and headbands to shoes and skirts. This new Dior clutch makes the most of the trend by layering long fringes on a simple square clutch. Though the collection showed this bag in bright greens, blues and pinks in a sling style, we’re loving the elegance of this ivory colored version.
4. The crochet D&G satchel
Crochet isn’t just for grandmas – this spring, it’s on every fashionistas arm, and it looks hot. This D&G satchel bag makes the most of the trend with a structured shape that is offset by a scattering of uber-feminine flowers. Trendy and whimsical, yet still formal enough for work thanks to the formal charcoal color – what’s not to love?
5. The fantasy bag – LV Monagram Nova minaudiere
It’s not exactly within everyone’s budget, at around $35,500, but this LV minaudiere is the stuff of every girl’s rhinestone-encrusted dreams. Decorated with hand-applied Swarovski crystals, the perfectly spherical bag features a monogram design and single long gold tassel. Ok, so we probably won’t be stepping out with this little beauty on our arms this spring, but hey, we can dream, right?
