The summers are surely driving us crazy, but no matter what the weather outside is, one accessory that should always be a part of our OOTD or OOTN has to be handbags. Styling your outfits with a fresh handbag is what you need to level up the look. Speaking of the new season bags, they are playful and deliver utmost wearability and style. Along the fashion weeks, the runways were set on fire with refined and chic handbags. You know what’s trending in 2022? Crochet totes, embellished clutches, rope handles, supersize totes or shopping bags, and so much more. However, after carefully observing the trends, we decided to pick three alluring pieces from astonishing brands that were launched in collaboration with our favorite stars. You have our word for it, these bags have it all-comfortability, functionality, and poise! Take note, and pick your preference amongst these three eccentric pieces to add flair to your handbag vanity.
SELF-PORTRAIT: THE BOW MICRO
The quintessence of contemporary luxury is the brand Self-Portrait. Established in London in 2013, this brand became every woman’s favorite, to say the least. After marking its presence in the apparel world, this year the creative director introduced its first onset into bags. Recently, they launched the brand-new Bow bag for their Spring/Summer 2022 collection and we were left amazed. It’s a true classic! Sure, we have seen a lot of classics in the past, but what sets this one apart is the top handle and the sweet modern twist. Naomi Campbell stars in the campaign and before we knew it the newlywed Chloë Sevigny and even Olivia Rodrigo were spotted carrying this beauty in style.
Speaking of the bag, it is crafted from Napa leather and comes in a compact size to hold all your essentials. The timeless silhouette features a top handle with a detachable shoulder strap and fastens with magnetic flap closure. Trust us when we say you will make a statement at every party with this beauty in your hand. As of now, there are two party-friendly sizes: the mini and the micro, available in an array of colors ranging from pastels, tan, black, crystals, and more.
SAINT LAURENT: ICARE MAXI SHOPPING BAG
The brand that comes under the category of the top five luxury fashion labels with top-notch quality has to be Yves Saint Laurent. After becoming the creative director, Anthony Vaccarello made sure no matter what show is on, the brand becomes the front-row chatter at all times. Speaking of bags, we have had a love-hate relationship with YSL Bags, but the new launch this time is our ‘newfound love.’ It’s the fresh ICARE Maxi Shopping Bag from the Fall 2022 collection.
Looking for this summer’s new IT bag? Well, looks like YSL heard you and came out with the perfect handbag that will match your vibe this summer. The new ICARE maxi shopping bag is all game. Crafted in quilted Lambskin, the bag is decorated with a carré-quilted overstitching. The new sculpted jewel YSL’s iconic signature is adding poise to the handbag. Drawn with bronze-toned metal hardware, it comes with detachable metal chain toggle closure. Mrs. Bieber stars in the campaign and looks elegant as ever. The maxi bag can be worn wide or with closed sides. Speaking of the interior, it has one big compartment and also comes with a removable zipped pouch. Space is not going to be an issue in this one as it is roomy enough to be carried to college with all your essentials and books!
MARC JACOBS: THE J MARC COLLECTION
The brand big on setting the trends with their accessories has to be Marc Jacobs. Keeping the handbags aside for a minute, the edgy hairstyles spotted on Bella and Gigi Hadid during the Fall 2022 runway show, we aren’t getting over that anytime soon. The girls took it up a notch, real OGs. The campaign stars the phenomenal Winona Ryder and this collection of all shoulder bags has become the talk of the town.
To spill some specifications, it is crafted in smooth leather and sealed by the J Marc hardware. The looks are impeccable and the quality of marc Jacobs is keeping them running in the business. The option of changing the chain bag with the webbing crossbody strap makes it even more versatile as it can go from formal to casual. However, we believe it is perfect for a true evening clutch, so make sure you take this to chill with your girlfriends. As for the interior, it comes with an interior slip pocket, a zip pocket, and one back slip pocket. Another appreciable fact is that the inside has a full-faille lining. If you’re lucky to get your hands on this collection, do it without thinking twice as since the launch it has been sold out!
