Strathberry has announced a second line of production for its sell-out “Meghan Markle handbag”.
The brand’s Midi Tote design – with a recognisable silhouette and signature metal bar – caught worldwide attention when Markle was spotted carrying one on her first official appearance since her engagement to Prince Harry.
Inspired by Edwardian style, Mulberry’s new collection borrows hyper-feminine trims as accents for both classic and contemporary silhouettes.
The Mini Amberley Satchel now comes with a ruffled trim and in attractive colours. A lock reminiscent of a horse’s bit and bridle acts as the design’s key fastening.
Fun For The Season
For Spring/Summer 2018, Balenciaga is focusing on the exaggeration of everyday styles. The label’s bags are offered in fun and quirky forms, paired with cheerful colours.
One such design, the BB Round M Flap, comes with a removable chain strap and signature charms like the Eiffel Tower, heart, keys and the letter B.
Carolina Herrera’s gorgeous Initials Insignia designs are crafted from high-quality leather in the fashion house’s atelier in Spain. A highlight of each bag – the reinvented logo – has been rotated to create a new fastening and is currently offered in different metallic finishings to complement all styles.
Sophisticated floral patterns from Salvatore Ferragamo’s archive grace a botanical accessory collection.
Designed by women’s creative director Paul Andrew, the bags feature a fresh design and contrasting framed edge detail, finished with either the iconic Gancini or silk scarf tie closure.
Striking New Look
The iconic Lady Dior bag from Dior has once again been given a makeover. From Lee Bul’s visionary interpretation of shape and structure to the thought-provoking graffiti motifs of Spencer Sweeney, each artist brings a distinct perspective to the iconic accessory. The Dior Lady Art project will be presented at exclusive events organised by the French maison.
Moschino’s homage to My Little Pony is a celebration of “cartoon couture”. Dreamt up in collaboration with Hasbro, the designs are infused with pure whimsy.
The leather crossbody bag from the collection reimagines the classic biker jacket silhouette, but in a shimmery metallic hue with intricate embroidery.
Kitsch Is Cool
Spring/Summer 2018 is a suburban symphony for Anya Hindmarch. The brand has again delved into the mundane for a range of delightful bags, but this time, it involves a modern interpretation of ordinary 1970s life.
Cat prints, googly eyes, shag piles, cute stickers and more adorn the designs.
