Therefore, let’s see what are the handbags trends in fall-winter 2016-2017 season.

Fur is an exclusively winter material, which since ancient times is used to create thick clothes. However, brands have not been limited to the production of fur coats and hats. Now from fur are created true works of art, and it is not just about clothes. Fur has become a frequent guest in the collections of footwear and accessories in fashion collections. This refers primarily to handbags. Latest cold collections have given us a lot of fur bags of various shapes, designs and colors. Michael Kors, Loewe, Fendi, Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, Alexander Wang have launched entirely furry handbags, while Jason Wu and Versace used fur only as decoration and trimming.
Fashion has demonstrated many times that it is contradictory and capricious. And besides all this, it is very versatile. Analyzing modern collections, it is difficult to identify what will be in fashion next season. To not go too far, we can take the example of fashionable handbags from autumn-winter 2016-2017 collections. While some designers have diversified their collections with incredibly large sized bags, others preferred to embellish the hands of women with small and delicate purses, the size of which can be described as very “childish”. These accessories will certainly not appeal to those who are accustomed to carry with them many things and who adore to go shopping, because in such an article can be placed in just a lipstick, a mirror and a few notes. Such mini purses, which will be worn exclusively in hands, can be found in the collections of Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Alexander Wang, Louis Vuitton, Jason Wu, Boss, Bottega Veneta, Marni, Salvatore Ferragamo.
If we talk about the shape of fashion handbags, then in the new cold season, this one will be just as varied. For example, Balenciaga proposed elongated triangular patterns, both in one shade and also decorated with golden stripes. Christian Dior has also chosen rectangular shapes, although made the handbags shorter and decorated them with bright colors.
If accurate shapes are not what characterize you and you like softer shapes, then we recommend that you draw attention to rounded purses autumn-winter 2016-2017 from Jason Wu, Giorgio Armani, Boss, Celine, Michael Kors and Miu Miu. Such articles look absolutely harmonious with both skirts and dresses, as well as with classic pants. In addition, they can be worn either in both hands, or over your shoulder, you decide!
If you like hands free, then we come to tell you that shoulder bags will again be the top choice. They can be both clutch bags, messenger bags, where you can put not just cosmetics and wallet, but also papers, books or extra clothes of the child. Burberry, Christopher Kane, Gucci, Chloe, Kenzo, Marni, Prada, Valentino, Chanel, Saint Laurent propose to release the delicate feminine hands.
Original and sometimes very exclusive, boxy bags aren’t ceasing the leading positions. Like last year, they can be found in the collections of Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana. In the new cold season, such articles were presented by renowned brand Salvatore Ferragamo.
Classic trapezoid bangs are in great demand and are the main designs from the catwalks for some time. These traditional shapes were loved by fashionistas from all over the world, therefore we can say with certainty that such geometric shapes will not leave the next seasons or collections. This bag design is another confirmation that the classic style can not and should not be boring. Look how delicate designers created their trapeze handbags. Some have decorated with frills, others with extravagant pictures and flowers. Examples can be found in collections Boss, Maison Margiela, Fendi and other famous brands.
Animal print handbags continued their triumphant march on fashion Olympus and here we can talk about different options: leopard prints and amphibians, as well as modern materials that mimic reptile skin. Such bags were presented in the most varied shapes and colors. Do you want a bag that mimics the skin of a red python? Here you go! A blue crocodile? Nothing easier! Examples of such bags are presented to us by Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, Burberry, Dries Van Noten, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta, 3.1 Phillip Lim.

Fashion clutches Fall-Winter 2016-2017
Small handbags for special events are called clutches. They accompany their mistresses at prom balls, weddings, award ceremonies and other festive events. Every year, our designers offer a growing range of such bags. In the new cold season, in fashion will be clutches purses, small clutches that resemble covers for glasses, boxy clutches and envelope bags (Miu Miu, Dolce & Gabbana, Bottega Veneta, Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta). Such items must necessarily be fully decorated with sequins, embroidery, rhinestones or just prints and bright colors. Not very often, but dark colors clutches are also met.
Prada, Chanel, Michael Kors, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton added in their collections of handbags quite original and stylish quilted patterns, both black, and other colors. Such designs look very good on the background of tweed dresses, sweaters, fur, and in combination with long gloves.
As always, artistic experiments couldn’t miss. Gucci, Christopher Kane, Dolce & Gabbana and Chanel have seen fit to change the bags appearance of fashion handbags. Instead of the usual classical shapes, they propose us to buy book-bags, carriage-bags, TV-bags, chandeliers etc. We must say that as a result of these experiments, we can see quite extravagant and stylish accessories.
The backpack bag is still a fashion trend of the autumn-winter season. In addition, we must say that in the new cold season, brands recommend us to combine backpacks with the most incredible clothing. For example, Lanvin combined suede backpacks with long fur; Louis Vuitton – brown patterns with prints and leather pants; Michael Kors – fur backpacks with long Classical coats. Versace also presented backpack designs, which in its collections are imitating the exact hue and print of the garment.

The range of colors can also be called a very successful one. We have warm shades, passionate and avid (Balenciaga, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Loewe, Gucci), the classic blue (Celine, Stella McCartney), deep purple (Marc Jacobs, Gucci), neutral green-gray palette (Giorgio Armani, Chanel), traditional brown (Louis Vuitton, Stella McCartney). Gucci, Prada and Versace used in an article several colors at once.
