The shoulder bag is big for autumn/winter. In fact, it’s the dominant handbag shape in this season’s 70s inspired bohemian trend, according to Brown Thomas.
Many are petite in proportion with double or single top handles and add a sense of refinement and elegance to catwalk looks.
Back packs and bucket bags take centre stage in the sports/luxe category. Shopper styles are still a key shape and the trend for the shrunken or mini cross body bags continue. The clutch takes on many forms from slouchy oversized to the envelope and framed style. Chain detail straps are in abundance - snakeskin, ponyskin and suede are all key details for autumn.
New brands include timeless classics, such as Longchamp, Karl Donoghue, and Marc by Marc Jacobs.
