Making a metallic bag look expensive and luxurious can be a tough needle to thread. If you get the tone, texture, color or shine off, even by a little bit, things start to look really cheap, really fast. And that's just a regular metallic, like silver or gold—when you add in a color-shifting iridescent or holographic quality, that's even more difficult. Since holographic bags peaked as a trend in 2012, though, plenty of brands have given the finishes a try here or there to hone their skills, and now the look seems to be coming back around.
Personally I've always loved the look of these bags, but never quite enough to buy one for myself. I would, though—I generally love metallic silver accessories and get a lot of wear out of them, and this look is only one step beyond that. I'm also always happy to see holo bags come back around, because when skillfully implemented, the finish can give enormous depth to the leathers to which its applied.
We found some holo and iridescent bags from across the price spectrum below. Is this a trend you're happy to see in stores again?
