Weird and wonderful accessories have become the biggest way to capture attention both on and off the runway. Quirky handbags have become the biggest way to cause a buzz on both social media and street style, with designers looking for inspiration in the strangest of places.
The spring/summer 2019 collections included a host of new fun handbags. This season, Karl Lagerfeld presented wicker basket-style bags and beach ball-style bags inspired by his beach-themed collection. Nicolas Ghesquière created a space age vibe for the Louis Vuitton SS19 collection, which featured futuristic bag styles, including the classic Minaudiere bag transformed into a monogrammed egg, as well as flying saucer-shaped pouches. The outrageously large straw bags of Jacquemus stole the show, while Dolce & Gabbana once again added to its novelty bag collections, this time with a Santa-inspired clutch and a beautifully printed picnic basket bag.
