Spring 2010 has arrived and so have the trends in handbags for the season. We have already covered the denim trend and perforated leather trend, but now it is time we cover a trend that has been interpreted in a multitude of ways. Tie-Dye Handbags are being seen in many collections this spring, varying from contemporary designers to premiere designers alike. Using different techniques, each designer has found a way to include the trend in their bags and we are thrilled to see this.
After visiting multiple showrooms this past fall the Handbag Trends for Spring 2010 were clear. One of the biggest trends is perforated leather. We saw this being used by Rebecca Minkoff, previewed it with YSL, and Prada is implementing perforated leather for many of their bags.
For Spring 2010 expect to see perforated leather from Prada, to Jimmy Choo, to Burberry, to Bottega Veneta. Prada’s perforated leather has an extremely sporty vibe which is largely due in part to the shape of the bags they are using it on (note the Prada Roll Bag). While Prada’s look is very sporty, we have an array of designers using perforated leather in various ways to give the bags a fresh spring look. (more…)
