Summer is the best time to update your look and one of the easiest ways is with a fabulous new bag. Switching your bag can completely transform your outfit _ whether it's a slouchy leather holdall, a super-sized clutch, a summer bright shopper or a blazing-coloured tote. Here are some awesome designs to perfect your stylish look this summer.
From British luxury fashion brand Burberry is the "Burberry Blaze Bag" collection. Inspired by the brand's heritage luggage, the new bag collection has a sassy and fiery shape that embodies the spirit of summer. It is a structured tote in modern, architectural silhouette crafted by Italian artisans and features hand-stitched luggage handles. The bridle straps are finished with graphic hand-painted edges and the bag features a signature leather-covered lock and key. The new collection comes in a variety of finishes, most notably with see-through coloured Perspex with bold, vibrant colours. Reflective materials also lend a sense of fun.
Italian luxury fashion house, Fendi introduces its "2Jours" tote bag in two sizes with short handles featuring a small logo. A sharp line of enamelled metal running along the top edge of the bag draws its linear shape. The materials and workmanship enhance the geometric design of the bag. Structural simplicity serves as a backdrop for rich, extravagant materials such as galuchat, crocodile, python, fox, pony skin mix, capitonne patent leather, felt, leather and backgammon velvet.
The smooth and supple LM Cuir bag from Longchamp.
French Longchamp introduces "LM Cuir", the brand's new iconic bag collection in a dazzling array of shades that illuminate its smooth, supple cowhide leather, which is embossed with the emblematic LM pattern of galloping racehorses and crisscrossing bridle straps. Eight colours are available _ black, white, sandy, oak brown, orange, indigo, red and sunshine. The collection features tote bags, as well as small leather goods, travel bags and trolley case.
Designer brand Marc Jacobs launches the reworked, chic and functional Antonia bag in petalo lamb leather this season _ making it a lighter carryall option essential for everyday wear. The bag boasts a large front zip pocket, a removable shoulder strap and main zippers that unzip deep while leather side gussets protect the wearer's belongings from spilling out.
Marc Jacobs also introduces a new group of Multi Stitching Baroque bags with a fun twist. The bag comes in bright beautiful colours, combined to encompass the feel of 1940s art-deco Miami. The triple stitch design incorporates the brand's classic double stitch, a zigzag stitch and a single centimetre-thick stitch. The contrasting colours also create textural and three dimensional illusions.
