Some trends announce themselves early and often; fur, for instance, is not only difficult to miss in even its most sedate incarnations, but fur bags have been paraded up and down so many international runways that you'd have to be actively avoiding the information not to know that every designer is going to try to sell you something fuzzy come fall. Other trends sneak up more quietly; you don't hear them mentioned and retail stores don't put any emphasis on them, and then suddenly there are navy handbags everywhere and no one is talking about it.
In most instances, navy isn't all that strange a sight, but navy leather goods have never been as popular or as widely available as their black or brown counterparts. Done poorly, the bags and shoes (but especially the shoes) can look dated, but this crop of navy bags looks fresh and modern. The best part, of course, is that navy is a neutral - it'll be super easy to work into your wardrobe, and personally, I'm particularly partial to navy and black together.
