It’s that time of the year again, when the window displays are evolving and our desire to try out the latest trends is growing. Looking back, the AW19 Catwalk offered an array of new trends that we can experiment with, from big puffed sleeves and exotic feathers, to oversized and miniature bags.
So today kickstart the autumn season, we have put together an edit of our favourite handbag trends, how to style them and which ones you can affordably hire at Catwalk Club.
1. Handheld Structures
To begin, let’s start with ‘handheld structures’, because some of the most standout bags on the runway were just too special to simply sling over your shoulder. Make sure to try this trend with us this season – hire our Chanel Coco Handle Flap bag for a London lunch date, or the Lady Dior for an upcoming work event, and you’re guaranteed to look polished and chic for any of your upcoming occasion.
2. The Oversized Tote
It is no surprise that the ‘oversized tote’ has returned for another season! From Dior to Proenza Schouler and Giambattista Valli, the carryall tote made another huge hit across the runway. Yes, that means we don’t have to say goodbye to the beloved Dior Book Tote just yet! So make sure to book and hire from our collection of tote bags, ready for all your upcoming autumn/winter trips and events.
The minimalistic bag trend has a way of making its way back to the runway every season. Super-sleek in minimal leathers, the most sought-after bag trend of the season will most definitely be anything that feels extra-ladylike and chic. You can book and hire from our collection today – each roomy enough to fit your essentials into, classic enough to go with everything you own and offered in a variety of styles to suit every fashion-personality.
4. Chain Reaction
Chain straps are back this A/W; whether you prefer an oversized chain or would rather opt for a classic style, this is a trend which everyone can join in with. JW Anderson supersized the look on its fall runway with an oversize gold chain strap, while Carolina Herrera, Altuzarra, Chloé, and more stuck with classic chains. Which style would you go for this season?
5. The Croc Effect
Be playful with your textures this season and elevate your looks with the croc-effect trend. We saw numerous labels play around with croc-embossing on the A/W runway bags included Rebecca Minkoff, Zimmermann, Ulla Johnson, and Bottega Veneta. You can also affordably hire and style this trend via Catwalk Club; from the YSL Sac de Jour to the YSL Bellechasse Medium Croc-effect Bag.
