SCARF DRESSING

Scarf prints and actual scarves used in interesting ways is a trend sweeping all the runways, and Milan was no different. From models completely wrapped in scarves to a simple scarf wrapped around a handbag handle to full-on bag-scarfs, we are loving this trend!

POUCH BAGS

Small handheld drawstring pouch bags are the new minaudiere for dressy occasions, but can dress down easier than box clutch styles.

UPDATED SNAKE

Snake might not be the most revolutionary handbag fabrication, especially in Italy where luxury skins are paramount, but designers came up with new ways to show python, water snake, and snake prints. Heavy chains and patchwork, or casual webbing strap interpretations keep things looking fresh.

CROCHET & WOVEN

Grab those crochet needles! Crafty handbags are trending, from crocheted backpacks to woven raffia. It’s a boho vibe and a 70s throwback. Even crocheted beaded bags, which have become street style darlings, are hitting the runway.

80S WHITES & EMBELLISHMENTS

The runways are feeling a real 80s moment, and not just with all those neons. Stark white, decorated with embossed logos or crystals and grommets make want to shout: We Want OUr MTV!

TRAIN CASES

Old fashioned train travel might be a thing of the past, but so-called train case bags are making a comeback. These either are hinged to open like a small trunk, or zip around.
