5 Top Luxury Purse and Handbag Trends

Top 5 Purse & Handbag Trends

Hobo Bags: This is what we meant about making a comeback – hobo style handbags were first popular in the 1970s. This style of bag is characterized by its large, slouchy crescent shape and a long, over the should strap. Designers like Nina Ricci, Givenchy, and Max Mara have all put new spin on some old fashion and are creating new styles of hobo bags.

Ricci’s rocking stripes, solids, and square patterns that are rich, bold, and full of texture. Meanwhile, Givenchy and Max Mara’s designs are a much smoother style and texture with materials like suede and leather making up most of their Hobo bags.


Mini Me Bags: Hermes, Valentine, and Fendi all have the tiniest little handbags imaginable. There really isn’t room for much inside of these purses other than some change, and maybe lipstick and eyeliner, but they are so adorable. These miniature handbags pair well with bigger purses and can often be used as an accessory inside the larger bags.

If you’re a minimalist of any sort, the mini-me handbags are all the rage these days. The only thing mini about this fashion purse is the size – prices for top designer mini bags range in the low to high hundreds!


Backpacks: Backpacks are making a comeback, for those of you who have been out of school for a while that is. The difference is top designer back packs have more chic, class, flash, and style than ever before. Versace, Maison Margiela, and Fendi all decided to come out with a Spring and Summer line for 2017 - can you imagine what will be in store for this Fall!

Whether you’re rocking the sporty look and lifestyle, or you’re embracing your inner glam, there is a fashion forward backpack that will suit you just fine. Just be prepared for sticker shock when you go shopping as top designs charge upwards of $500 to $2000 for their backpacks.

Shimmer & Shine: In the 80’s there was a phase where designers were producing shiny and sparkly clothing, purses, etc. Well, the shimmer and shine have made a comeback. Marc Jacobs has some incredibly amazing metallic bucket bags and Delpozo has recently put out a stunning, semi-transparent, shining purse.

Versus Versace, Kenzo, Louis Vuitton, you name it, the tops fashion handbag designers all have a version of this bag. With all that shimmer, shine, and sparkle it makes it hard to lose your purse – red patent leather kind of stands out in a crowd of matte black bags.


Off the Chain: We should say on the chain but eh. Bottega Veneta has a line of purses with some pretty classy chain straps that look much too stylish to be a simple chain. While designer John Galliano went more for the punk rock look, some of his purses and handbags have several chains, giving them a rock and roll vibe. The chains on these bags are often big and chunky - like a giant version of a traditional necklace chain. For a special touch – coordinate your outfit with a matching gold or silver chain necklace.
