While the spring/summer 2019 collections were awash with colour, designers created many of their new-season ‘It’ bags in classic black. A black handbag is a wardrobe staple and a great way to channel the new SS19 cult bags beyond passing trends. Versatile and chic, a black bag is sure to stand the test of time. In this gallery we take a look at some of the bestselling SS19 designer handbags, all released in classic black. Gucci, one of the cult fashion brands, has released the new Arli bag, defined by its double G gold hardware and its vintage aesthetic, while Prada’s new 90s-style Sidonie bag is another handbag making waves on the street-style scene for SS19.
One of the biggest handbag releases for SS19 has been the Chloé C bag. The new style has a timeless flap-front messenger aesthetic and is distinguished by a large C on the front. It is available in a range of hues, from sepia brown to woody green, but the classic black is sure to go with all outfits.
