When it comes to fashion, trends are very fickle. In the words of Heidi Klum, one day they're in and the next day they're out. While it's true that some trends leave almost as fast as they come, certain ones like fabrications or bag silhouettes never really go completely out of style, rather they fly under the radar and are findable but not everywhere.
Such is the case with patent leather, and I'm not talking embossed croc, or faux exotic shiny finishes on bags, I'm talking full on glossy and smooth patent leather purses. Recently, we've seen a resurgence in patent leather bags. They've been quietly flying under the radar for a fair but, but lately it seems that they're just itching to make a return.
This season, many designers have added stunning patent pieces to their lineup. From Fendi and Gucci to more contemporary brands like By Far and Wandler, there are already a slew of options to choose from, and we bet there are plenty more to come. While colorful patent leathers are true showstoppers, for a more understated option patent neutrals like black or nude still makes a stunning statement. Do you love or would you rather pass on patent?
