The autumn/winter 2018 collections brought about a huge array of new bag styles for the season. Despite the sheer amount of accessories, several emerging trends could be seen across all four fashion week cities. AW18 is all about the way you hold your bag, with designers shunning top handles in favour of bags to be carried under the wrist. Brands from Valentino and Dior to Louis Vuitton and Givenchy all showed bags held underneath the models’ arms. The belt bag, first seen a few seasons back, is another top trend. JW Anderson and Emilio Pucci, among others, opted for hands-free waist bags that captured the contemporary casualwear trend that dominated the AW18 fashion weeks. Here are our standout bag trends for autumn/winter 2018.
