Every woman loves them and wants them. For their beauty but above all because they represent the status symbol of a style that has made people dream and continues to do so season after season. It-bags are true evergreen that go through trends and decades unscathed, faithful to themselves and to the women who wear them. But if it is true that these iconic pieces are always the perfect solution for every occasion, some fashion lovers like change and continuous renewal. For this reason, every designer always proposes new styles and designs on the catwalks. However, there is also a third option, namely the great classic revisited. In short, they take the most representative piece of the house and “update” it with original colours, details or decorations, by being faithful to the original design.
An approach that can also be seen on the Autumn-Winter 2018-19 catwalks.
In terms of shoppers, for example, extra-large proportions, autumnal shades or the ever-present black & white colour combination are a must. If the Fendi Peakaboo is proposed in a green forest suede, Valentino, for its Rockstud, focuses on minimal lines and a measured and elegant carnelian red. While at Bottega Veneta, the iconic Cabat in ultra soft intrecciato nappa leather is enriched with three-dimensional, matching maxi flowers.
Adored by practical women who are always on the move, shoulder bags know how to amaze without losing anything of their functionality. The double-handled Chloé Tess becomes even more beautiful with colourful, geometric graphic details. Tod’s Gommini is proposed as a silver mini shoulder bag with a striking logo. While the biker jacket shaped bag that has become one of the symbols of the Moschino brand for this season focuses on vibrant and bright candy colours.
Also super feminine and retro handbags are renewed by focusing on opulent decorations and arty graphic details. On the Dolce & Gabbana runaway, the Sicily Bag shows off a new look with with golden swirl embroidery and multi-coloured flowers. The Louis Vuitton Alma style chooses a design with an architectural and organic charm. Finally, at Dior, the Lady Dior is transformed into a rainbow canvas depicting symbolic scenes and enriched with a profusion of pearls and fringes.
