Weather got you blue? Don’t worry, summer is coming—in the brightest way possible! The Spring Summer introduction of statement bags see designers using bags as accessories. From mini leather bags worn as bangles to puffer bags tucked under the sleeve, these are the three big bag trends to buy now.


Made of the softest Napa leathers, designers Maison Margiela, Loewe, Coach, J W Anderson, Prada, Palm Angels, Jacquemus and YSL lead the trend of Pillow ‘puffer’ style bags. Cross-bodied or simply tucked, the array of summer colours is sure to brighten your mood and keep your valuables protected this summer!


The Crescent or moon shaped bag has been famously accessorised on the sleeves of FENDI runway models making this the new way to style your mini bag. Its structured shape and lightweight design and application ensure you will never leave your bag behind again! In love with their array of bold colours and the FENDI letter hardware.


The modern reinvention of the top handle bag recalls characteristics of the charm bracelet. Rectangular and square updated shapes vary in size, colour and design to be cross-bodied or carried. Look for embossed, stitched, printed and painted like super brand Louis Vuitton’s collaboration of dot motif  leather bags by Japanese artists Yayoi Kusama.
