With the summer solstice behind us, summer is officially here. While most of us are reveling in beach days and summer nights with our favorite warm-weather bags by our side, retailers are getting their stockrooms and warehouse ready for fall’s new arrivals. Earlier this year, our favorite designers presented their Fall 2022 collections, giving us an idea of what we should expect in the latter part of the year.
The Fall 2022 Runways Were Trend-Heavy
And as pre-fall collections slowly begin to trickle in, next up comes fall’s full collections. So even though the weather is still warm, we’re already looking ahead towards what’s coming in fresh for fall. Get your wallets ready; this season is going to be good!
The runways saw the return of current trends (many proving Bottega’s influence is still going strong), but there was still some newness to be seen throughout as well. Wallpaper florals were one of the runway’s more scarce trends, but when some of the biggest names in the handbag world show a trend, we take note, and the rest of the fashion world will likely follow.
A Fresh Take on Florals
From Dior and Fendi to Louis Vuitton and Gabriela Hearst it was abduntly clear that fall florals are an up and coming trend to note. These aren’t just your average spring flowers though, these beautiful bouquets are shown in fall tones and metallics that shine, and I’m prepping my wallet for the release of Louis Vuitton’s upcoming collection. AT Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquiere breathes new life into classic Louis Vuitton Mongoram by combining it with stunning metallic blooms.
A printed bag is one of the most statement-making pieces one can have, and at Dior and Fendi, florals also outfitted some of each designer’s most-wanted shapes like the Bobby and the Baguette, respectively. Florals on handbags are nothing new, but it’s the way in which designers are doing them this season that has me hooked.
This fall, I’m ready to trade in my bright and colorful bags for a new showstopper: eye-catching flora. What about you? Love it or Leave it?
