The best handbag trends that walked down the London runways at Spring 2019 Fashion Week.

SOFT POUCH BAGS

From printed silky “scarf dressing” pouch bags to sporty drawstring bags, the soft pouch bag was all over the runways. Some had a bit of structure via a hard top or bottom, while others were a grab-and-go style.

KNOTS, ROPE AND FRINGE

Macrame, knots and cording continue to add a hand-crafted and either boho or nautical feel to handbags. Fringe went both sporty and dressy.
