Accessory report FW12: Bags

Since it’s soon to be fall I want to give you the ultimate bag report. I’ve noticed there are some major trends this fall when it comes to handbags. The shoulder bag is one of them and above I’ve picked out my favourites. From the left: Givenchy Obsedia bag, suede patchwork bag from Roger Vivier and a dark chocolate crocco bag from Stella McCartney. From the left row two you’ll fins Givenchy Shark tooth buckle bag in nude, Céline bicolor shoulder bag and the Boy bag by Chanel in blue velvet.Another huge trend, that I myself would love to embrace, is the crocco trend. Regardless of the colour a nice crocco bag can elevate your outfit at an instant. From the left: lovely tote bag in navy blue from The Row, clutches from Nancy Gonzalez and chestnut brown crocco bag from Givenchy.
Is all about red this fall – red suits, red skirts, red blazers, red coats, red shoes and of course red bags. These above are my three favourites, from the left: Valentino shoulder bag, Tom Ford crocco evening bag and studded clutch from Valentino. And of course, the leopard print is always a classic. Love it on accessories and especially when it comes to bags. Jérome Dreyfuss has made the beautiful tote above on the left, in the middle: Christian Louboutin pony hair evening clutch (to-die-for), Valentino leopard printed shoulder bag and to the right the Va-Va-Voom large shoulder bag from Valentino.

The star bags

Vogue Paris just listed their absolute must-have bags for the summer – they call the spread ‘The 21 Star Bags for Summer’ and there are a few gorgeous bags in that spread. My top three favourites are these above – The Givenchy Obsedia Shoulder Bag, a black Hermès shoulder bag and a white Alexander McQueen clutch. The Obsedia bag from Givenchy is the one I have mentioned like a hundred times by now, but I believe it’s the perfect shoulder bag. It’s totally the bag I miss in my closet right now.
