Bottega veneta marie
Daniel Lee was named the best accessory designer of 2019 by experts at the Fashion Awards. And for good reason: everything that Bottega Veneta's creative director touches instantly becomes a sensation on Instagram, and then gets the status of "sold-out" in stores. Girls are ready to buy Pouch dumplings bags and giant Arco shoppers even though hundreds of bloggers and dozens of girlfriends already have them. The same thing happens with models adorned with the signature Bottega Veneta Intrecciato weaving and its interpretations: the marathon behind the Marie bag from the fall / winter collection has begun. 3D image courtesy of Cappasity.
The TB bag marks a new milestone in Burberry's history: it is one of the first designs of creative director Ricardo Tisci, who succeeds Christopher Bailey, who has been responsible for the collection for 17 years. The accessory reflected the main idea of the new designer - to mix the past and the future. For the first, there is a gilded monogram made in the form of the initials of Thomas Burberry, for the second - a removable belt that turns the bag into a clutch, belt model or cross-body.
Valentino Garavani VRING
VRING handbags debuted at last Valentino's Spring / Summer collection and have been constantly coming out in new sizes, materials and colors ever since. It features a smooth nappa crossbody, a grained leather clutch and a long sleeve envelope with a gold-tone buckle in the logo that the founder of the brand used in the 70s. From the wide range we choose a model with The Panther print: it refers to the first collections of Valentino Garavani, as well as the nickname of Naomi Campbell, the ambassador of the VRING line.
Bags with large lettering on the front went on sale in February, and in April they entered the top three most popular accessories according to the personal recommendation service Lyst. The girls began to look for and massively buy up Chloé C models, seeing them at Kaia Gerber, Natalia Vodianova, Veronica Heilbrunner and hundreds more - we are not exaggerating - guests of the fashion week. To make the novelties available to everyone, creative director Natasha Ramsay-Levy has expanded the line: in the autumn-winter collection of Chloé, there are bags made of aniline leather in bright colors, which skillfully pretends to be crocodile.
Jonathan Anderson is, like us, a fan of Rem Koolhaas: every new Loewe bag evokes the work of a Dutch architect. The Postal model from the Spanish brand's fall-winter collection is just as clear, geometric and stylistically simple, and two short handles and a removable shoulder strap have also brought connoisseurs of functionality to the army of architecture lovers.
Despite the fact that the front panel of the Gucci Zumi bag is adorned with a vintage monogram composed of the initials of the company's founder Guccio Gucci, it is dedicated to another great person - Zumi Rosow. In between the concerts of her band The Black Lips, the actress and experimental musician participates in brand shows and stars in advertising campaigns. However, the fact that the creative director Alessandro Michele was so in love with her that he called the line of accessories by the name of Zumi was not even suspected: the girl found out about it only when the bags were already on sale - and were instantly sold out.
The Virtus bag opened the show for the fall-winter Versace collection, in which the creative director and sister of the brand's founder, Donatella Versace, once again reinterpreted historical codes. The show featured a T-shirt with a portrait of the designer by Richard Avedon in the 90s, jackets with archival prints of Gianni Versace himself, and jumpers with gold pins known for the iconic Elizabeth Hurley dress. Nostalgia for bygone times also touched the debutante bag - it received a letter clasp with a relief pattern of acanthus leaves - for the first time such a motif appeared on the brand's things in 1991.
Givenchy's new design director, Claire Waite Keller, is also ready to play with the past: the Eden bag from the fall / winter collection is complemented by the Double G monogram, which was present in the design of jewelry in the 80s. Archive buckle and characteristic stitching is perhaps the only thing that unites accessories from the new line. Otherwise, they are made in different sizes, from different leather and with different handles: short narrow, long narrow and short wide, like a tie.
Cara Delevingne, who left her modeling career for filming in films, makes an exception and only participates in the show with her friend, creative director of Balmain Olivier Rousteing. Recently, the results of their collaboration can be seen not only on the catwalk, but also on the shelves of retailers: the Romeo, Twist and BBag bags developed by Delevingne and Rousteing have gone on sale. The first got the shape of a bell, the second - metal "ears", and the third - the simplest and most convenient of all - a quilted lid in the form of the company logo.
The letter “B” also went to the new Balenciaga bag, replacing the oversized tote bags, cat shoppers and rolled-up magazine clutches. Demna Gvasalia released it in several colors, shapes and materials at once - from a rounded model made of yellow leather to a rectangular one made of black velvet, and even covered with an inscription in rhinestones: "I love Paris".
The comeback of the Sidonie bag, introduced by Prada back in 2000, turned out to be loud and long. The favorites of secular photographers have been wearing it since the end of last year: in the hand, on the shoulder or under the arm, like another recently returned bag - the Fendi Baguette. A comfortable shape with good roominess, timeless design and rich history make Sidonie a truly priceless gift. Consider this when making a list of presents for the new anniversary year for this model.
Maison margiela glam slam
The popularity of the Glam Slam model, which is only growing every year, is very simple to explain: it resembles a pillow and even performs all the same functions. A bag with a holographic effect, which, among other things, can accommodate removable shoes, can be taken to a New Year's party and used for other purposes if something goes wrong.
The Row Ascot Two
The Ascot Two bag, which looks like a draped scarf with ties-knots, is considered one of the most copied by the mass market, Chinese retailers and niche Russian brands. But how pleasant it is to buy an original accessory - especially since the founders of The Row, the Olsen sisters, have added models made of silky velvet to the collection of delicate satin and soft linen.
Bottega veneta pouch
Nicknamed the Dumpling for its bizarre shape, Daniel Lee's iconic design has been transformed for winter. Design Director Bottega Veneta's team has developed a fur coat for her made of ultra-thin strips of nappa leather, which has been pre-ironed. The bag is pleasant to hold in your hands not only because of the soft material. This is real couture - most of the work is done by hand.
Off-White Crystal Binder Clip baby
Only Virgil Abloh can combine glamor and urbanism: the design of the new Off-White Crystal Binder Clip baby bag includes rhinestones, a clip in the form of a paper clip, and hex nuts. The designer suggests wearing a set for all occasions on a branded construction strap, combining it with boiler suits or equally shiny dresses.
