We may be in the midst of SS19 – but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to set our sights on the new season. Join us as we decipher the three key bag trends for AW19 in our exclusive preview – here’s what we’ll be wearing now and next.
1. The Cross-Body Bags
The ultimate day-to-night heroes, cross-body bags are the one trend that will never our side. In AW19, look out for utility-inspired styles with striped straps or, for an intense hit of colour, try sports-luxe designs in bold primary tones.
2. The Quilted Bags
An iconic design detail favoured by various fashion houses, quilting is making a comeback – and in AW19, it’s going one step further. While leather and PU pieces still remain relevant, sports-luxe styling is also gaining momentum next season, with soft, padded textures taking on the classic trend – find it on everything from cross-body bags to backpacks.
3. The New Backpacks
From the daily grind to weekend adventures, backpacks are the bags to rely on when we need to go hands-free. As we head into next season, press refresh with down-sized styles in plush cord – we like how the golden yellow hue works for now too. For commuters, reflective designs in animal prints present the perfect fusion of fashion and functionality.
