SS22 Bag Trends

Bagged-up for any-occasion!

It seems unsurprising that a season that has put a focus on celebration and fun is matched with a wide array of celebratory and eye-catching bags.
Some trends of the previous season remain, there were large numbers of mini bags, big shoppers and detachable details. This season, printed shoppers were mostly in match with the rest of the outfit for a full statement style.
Other large bags included hobos and knitted, preferably fishnet, market bags. Crochet styles were also relevant across more edgy shows. Linked to such a taste for craft, fringes feel more artsy than before and add a heritage twist to a renown look.
The most edgy items include symbolic shapes like hearts, stars, fruits or even animals. These bags are part of the red-carpet-at-home trend, which is popular across most categories for SS22.
Lastly, new iconic shapes have risen on the catwalks. For next summer season half-moon bags, wristlets and elongated shapes will become sophisticated classics and should not be missed in a fashionable product range.

Do not forget that sustainability in this category is crucial. From textile bags, made to upcycle the ready-to-wear leftovers to new leather alternatives, the research and development of leather goods is finding creative solution and reliable suppliers.
