With an abundance of pool parties, lazy brunches and trips to the beach, summer is officially here. And bringing your inner gypsy to the fore goes hand in hand with the incessant need to carry the entire world with us (and then some) wherever we go. Be it just a packet of tissues, our usual arsenal like sunscreen, perfume and trusty hair clips or the kitchen sink (!), a trendy handbag is non-negotiable this time of the year. So as you set out for a summer of fun and fashion, make sure you aren’t caught with anything that’s ‘so last season’. Here are the only handbag trends you need to know about for Spring Summer’15.
The fash frat has ’70s fever this season and everything reminiscent of the mighty disco decade is making quite a comeback. The hipster essential fringe bag included. This street style meets music festival ready bag has tons of patrons namely the likes of the Olsen twins, Nicole Richie, Selena Gomez and more. You can pair this statement maker with basics like ripped denims and a cool cream shirts or linen shirt-dresses and culottes. And of course, éléspry has the perfect bag for your very own 70's look, our trendy black-coloured handbag.
Blame it on the rebellious and opinionated spirit of social media and the exploding pop art scene; this season’s arm candy desperately wants to take a stand too. This expressive handbag trend — be it in the form of a sling bag or clutch — adds the perfect punch of cheekiness to an otherwise mundane outfit. We’ve spotted it on Jacqueline Fernandez, Esha Gupta and Rita Ora among others.
Back to school
The girl-on-the-go can breathe a sigh of relief, as the fuss free-backpack tops trend charts this season! From the classic leather backpacks to bright numbers, this one is all about utility meets style. Considering it’s been spotted on Beyoncé and Katrina Kaif, you know there’s no going wrong with it!
These bite-sized trunk bags are cute as a button and are the epitome of spring’s quirky and vibrant spirit. Now this trunk may not work for when you’re checking in for a holiday, but we can’t think of a better way to make a statement on a night out! Can you? The gold-coloured, croc-pattern envelop clutch by éléspry is a perfect fit for this look.
The Normcore frenzy has spread its wings to include bags, too and the bucket bag is its perfect representation. Ideal for running errands or going from AM to PM, it can easily hold all your essentials without getting crammed while allowing easy movement too. Logo-free and a celebrity in its own right, the style’s patrons include those like Miranda Kerr, Rachel Bilson and Olivia Palermo. There is no more perfect way to include this style in your own repertoire than éléspry's versatile brown shoulder bag, a bag with a twist!
