In the category of leather handbags, trends on the Spring/Summer 2012
catwalks were clear to see. When it came to shapes, still very much in
evidence was the hand-held clutch. Whether it was dainty and feminine
like a Jason Wu original or larger and more functional such as a
Victoria Beckham example, the flat envelope form was everywhere.
Clearly, the clutch is a style we are going to hold on to for a while.
Other popular shapes in leather bags at this year's collections were
structured satchels, boxy retro handbags, large bucket bags, baguette,
and messenger bags. There was an emphasis on holding the bag close that
led generally to shorter straps and rigid handles. Crossover body straps
continue their popularity.
The more casual shape of the backpack combined with luxury styling and
haut couture sensibilities produced interesting designs from Alexander
Wang. His large cigar-shaped designer bags worn strapped to the back
caused a stir at New York fashion week and it is likely this theme will
be picked up in new leather bag designs as the season progresses.
The colour palette for the new season's leather handbags is varied. Nude
is the colour of the moment in handbags as well as in clothing and
shoes. However, if you prefer bolder shades, there is plenty of choice
this season. Leather handbags in teal, berry, canary, grape, and hot
tangerine colours were paraded down the runway in New York and London.
Another huge trend adopted by many leather bag designers was the
two-toned colour way. Leather bags just got a lot more colourful. Why
has one shade, when you can have two? May be even three? Marc Jacobs,
Victoria Beckham, Derek Lam, and Diane von Furstenberg all sent
bi-coloured bags down the catwalk.
