Anya Hindmarch Hits It Out of the Park With Her Spring 2015 Runway Bags

Other Brands

Anya Hindmarch Spring 2015 Handbags 16

It’s early in the season and none of the handbag heavyweights from Milan and Paris have shown us what they’ve got quiet yet, but I’m here to make a bold prediction: Nothing that we see on the coming runways will be as fun as Anya Hindmarch’s Spring 2015 bags, and I’d be surprised if any of them manage to be more compelling.

Hindmarch, who only designs accessories, starting throwing ready-to-wear-style runway shows to celebrate her handbags several seasons ago, and that should tell you a little something about the confidence she has in her handbags to stand as a statement unto themselves alongside anyone else’s full collections. For Spring 2015, the models wore loose clothes in white linen, which gave the handbags a background against which to take center stage.

Not that these bags need any particular help in that department; although a few traditional leather pieces were slotted in here and there, most of the bags were adorned with pop culture paraphernalia of one sort or another. Hindmarch’s consumer goods-branded bags have been explosively popular, and this collection includes a continuation of that theme alongside shapes like stars, hearts, cartoon eyes, arrows, thought bubbles and too many other things to mention.

Novelty shoes have been hugely popular for a while, and although designers have found significant success designing clutches with a similarly not-so-serious feel, Hindmarch is the first large-scale designer to get the tone just right when it comes to full-size leather day bags. Her creations strike the balance between fun and luxury that’s so difficult to pin down, and here’s hoping she doesn’t change directions any time soon. Check out the full collection below.

For Spring 2015, Mulberry Gets Its Groove Back

Other Brands

Mulberry Spring 2015 Bags 3

Mulberry’s various and sundry corporate challenges are well-documented and yet to be resolved, but London Fashion Week waits for no brand. For Spring 2015, the brand soldiered forth in a more subtle way than it has in recent years. Instead of a big production with global It Girl and brand ambassador Cara Delevingne, Mulberry put on a subtle presentation full of the kinds of pieces that made people Mulberry fans in the first place.

There were a few of the company’s popular Bayswater bags on display in preppy, spring-appropriate finishes and colors, but the star of the show was a pared-down, chain-strapped shoulder bag called the Delphie, which Mulberry claims can be worn six ways but is probably most recognizable as a small shoulder bag that can be easily converted into a medium-size clutch. Instead of the signature large turnlock closure, it featured a smaller, more modern metal button that, while bearing the Mulberrylogo, was less in-your-face than the Mulberry of the recent past.

Check out the collection below; are you feeling this scaled-back vibe?

Dolce And Gabbana Agata Bag In Grained Calfskin

Other Brands

Dolce-Gabbana_Agata_Bag

Though we haven’t featured much Dolce & Gabbana Handbags so far, we can’t deny that their craftsmanship is one of the finest in Italy. And I am not only talking about assembling and putting the bags together, but also the amazing designs – so luxurious, so feminine that it literally makes any woman feel sexy.

Here’s a piece that captured my heart and soul, it’s the Dolce & Gabbana Agata Bag in full black. The Agata collection is not new and has been featured in different prints, but this exceptional piece is absolutely to-die-for because it’s simply ‘perfect’.

First notice the shape and the components like the handles, body and the metal closure, they are like ‘one’, each piece supporting the other. Everything feels so classic and timeless, because of the black color. The top closure is embellished with D&G Logoed Ball and it looks like two pearls.

Crafted from grained calfskin, a durable leather that makes the bag forever. There is also a pouch with customized compact holder in the interior; you can also carry the Dolce & Gabbana Agata Bag with shoulder strap.

By the way, this bag is inspired by Saint Agatha of Sicily, a holy bag.

Measuring 27 x 20 x 12 cm, priced at $3295 USD or €1950 euro’s at Dolce & Gabbana e-store.

This Is How to Wear Culottes the Right Way

Other Brands

Love 'em or loathe 'em, culottes and cropped, wide-leg pants are back. We saw them on the international Spring 2014 runways but it's taken a little while for the fashion crowd to really embrace the trend. Well, embrace it again

Thankfully, the revived '80s favourite has taken on a totally new aesthetic for the season, with everyone from Valentino to local label Nicholas championing the look in current collections. While culottes are still the cool girl's tomboy alternative to a skirt, we've found one styling trick to make this look feel completely ladylike — and another that makes it seem almost as wearable as your trusted blue jeans. Almost.

Lily Aldridge is the latest style star to tackle the trend, pairing the wide-leg, cropped pants with a midriff-baring top on her way to the airport. But the street style crowd are also embracing the look, so come on, be brave! Keep scrolling to see and shop two street style-inspired ways to tackle the trend.

Marc Jacobs Continues His Handbag Push with Military Vibes for Spring 2015

Other Brands

Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 Handbags 10

Marc Jacobs is not a man of opaque themes; he’s preternaturally talented when it comes to a lot of things, and among them is letting his spectators, fans and clients know what he’s thinking during his seasonal shows. For Spring 2015, Jacobs clearly had his mind on the military, and the show contained the dusty olives and khakis that go right along with that, down to the bags.

Since leaving Louis Vuitton, Jacobs has put a clear emphasis on revitalizing his once-dominant accessories business, and he’s released several strong bags in aid of those efforts. The familiar one that popped up in this collection was a theme and variations on the Trouble Bag, a simple flap shoulder bag with a signature disc closure. The collection also included a number of oversized silk-satin knapsacks and totes in the style of traditional military bags, and although those supported the theme, they’re unlikely to be big sellers. Check out the full collection below.
