The spring/summer 2017 catwalks unleashed a whole new covetable array of ‘It’ bags. The season was all about bold, eye-catching looks. Designers are offering a kaleidoscope of colour with more embellishments and texture than ever. SS17 sees the return of the micro bag, with Valentino and Hermès offering ultra-mini clutches almost jewellery-like in their execution. Elsewhere, Chloé, Givenchy and Marni proved that ring bags are another top trend – one to watch on the front row and also carried by street-style icons. Big, bold, brash bags also dominated the catwalk, with names such as Balenciaga and Bottega Veneta offering supersize sack-style bags that are perfect for weekends away. Here we take a look at the best designer handbags for SS17.
