From Prada, Saint Laurent to Loewe, these iconic yet classic accessories should be added to your collection – just in time to elevate your Fall/Winter 2021 bag arsenal.
The Capucines got an artsy collaboration makeover built on the LV time-travelling aesthetic and Italian artistic design atelier Fornasetti’s distinct visual universe. The handbag’s geometrical black and white print called Architettura showcases the Palladian villa’s linearity and symmetry, enhanced by the brand’s signature monogram details.
Princess Diana’s favourite bamboo-handle tote has been reimagined by Alessandro Michele. The new iteration, while retaining the structural silhouette, is distinguished by removable, neon leather belts. The updated version is built on the idea of fluidity and encapsulates the free spirit and style of the Lady D in the ’90s.
Daniel Lee’s overnight success at BV is one that simply cannot be ignored. After the highly coveted The Pouch and Envelop Clutch comes The Structure. Reminiscent of a leather sculpture, the brand’s latest It bag features an elongated shape combining geometry and sinuosity while emphasising the softness of material. The top corner bends in a twist shape allowing a flexible and fluid appearance: folded or wrapped around the arm.
Not quite ready to dip your toe into full-on logomania? The Fendi First with a discreet “F” clasp is your answer. Celebrating the off-kilter irreverence of the brand, here the iconic Fendi logo is tilted into the frame of a clutch in a deconstructed silhouette. The clutch arrives in a variation of options ranging from shearling to soft nappa, and it can be styled in different ways by adjusting the detachable straps.
Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons’ take on the iconic Prada logo is in ways interpreting the logo as a design element in itself. The Signaux bag, in turn, is a study of the triangle shape which inspires new geometric details. This season, the shoulder bag is reworked in sequins to evoke the pleasure of tactility and the need to feel.
Few logos are as iconic as the YSL initials. Decorated in the YSL logo and crafted in quilted lambskin leather and carré- quilted overstitching, the Gaby satchel’s timeless appeal makes it a perfect investment piece and a prized possession for the generations to come, enhanced by its effortless silhouette and functionality.
An evening bag inspired by a bracelet from the ’50s, the Boucle Sellier élan is equal parts edgy and classy. The chiselled lines of the bag clasp extend into a wide-link chain worked seamlessly into the leather, while the silver jewel—opens and closes in a single fluid gesture—evokes a certain kind of rocker attitude we don’t typically see from the French Maison.
The latest bag to join Loewe’s accessory line-up, Goya, arrives in saturated colours with a minimal design. Sporting the Spanish brand’s recognisable anagram closure sitting on top of beautifully hand-crafted silk calfskin lined with soft nappa lambskin, the Goya is a compact, boxy bag that could very well be the house’s new classic.
Inspired by the house’s harness silhouette—a signature of the brand—Sarah Burton’s latest bag features a moulded shape with criss-cross piped trims, and a double-flap closure folds over that create a pure and elliptical form. The bucket bag can be worn cross body or over the shoulder via an adjustable strap.
The Trifolio’s sturdy, structural shape is an antidote to the squashy bags we’ve seen in fashion lately. Made of semi-glossy calf leather, the bucket bag displays a lip closure that is complemented by a golden Gancini buckle. The lined interior comes with two card slots which make the bag as functionable as it is chic.
