Anya Hindmarch is a brand that’s been around as long as I’ve been into handbags, but in the past two seasons, the British designer has rocketed to wider interest than she’s ever received before. That’s largely because of the decision to incorporate a few consumer product logos into some bags two seasons ago; earlier this week, Hindmarch gave us even more of what’s exploded the brand into the mainstream.
Fashion Week Coverage(Page 2)
This past New York Fashion Week was a bit of a let down on a variety of levels, from the seriously frigid temperatures to the lack of great bags that went down the runway. There were some magnificent collections when it came to the clothing, but overall, the handbags weren’t amazing.
As you might have noticed, we didn’t exactly flood the site the New York Fashion Week coverage last week. That wasn’t an oversight; we’ve found that, over the years, you guys really only care about seeing the great bag collections that go down the global runways, as well as the great bags that pop up outside.
If you’ve been following the general flow of New York Fashion Week coverage, you’ve probably picked up on the major 70s thread that’s running through the lion’s share of the notable (and not-so-notable) New York collections. That aesthetic definitely held true at Tory Burch, and especially for the bags.
If you’ve been following Alexander Wang for more than a season or two, odds are that many of the bags he sent down his Fall 2015 runway this week will look familiar to you. That’s not just because they were mostly re-proportioned takes on two of his most popular shapes, the Rocco and Emile, but because they were black, as all of Wang’s most popular bags have started out being.
It’s hard to think of another brand that’s had as meteoric of a rise as Mansur Gavriel; the design duo’s bucket bags still inspire months-long waiting lists seasons after their debut, and the rest of the bags in the brand’s lineup sell pretty quickly, too.
Yesterday New York Fashion Week began and that means the fashion folk have flocked in from near and far to attend the shows. We’ll be going to some of our favorite shows to seeing the trends for the seasons to come, but one of our favorite aspects is spotting the bags people are carrying to the shows.
