Spring/Summer 2010: Handbag Trends

Handbags are the major accessories of every woman. The 2010 handbag trends represent individuality and originality in an eclectic way. Every woman wants a fashionable handbag for functional and aesthetical reasons also. These great fashion items come in a large variety of shapes, colors, styles and fabrics. This years’ ladies handbags are carefully structured, they are luxurious and ethnic, feminine and masculine at the same time. 2010 handbags combine futuristic, bright colors with elegant earth tones, ethnic romance with exotism in order to create a perfect harmony.

Bags are indispensable accessories especially during the day, when women have to keep all the things they need, in one place. Therefore, this season's handbags have to be eye-catching and fashionable, but practical and comfortable also. Handbags differ in size, textures, colors and style, depending on the occasion and every woman’s personal preference.

  • This year’s fashion handbags are a great combination of small clutches and large sized bags, that are still chic in 2010.

  • Boho bags, woven textures, bright colors, long straps, braided handles, pleats, animal prints, exotic and elegant fabrics and subtle embroideries are the main features of the hottest handbags of 2010.

  • Many bags offer double carry possibilities, having both shoulder straps and top handles also, which makes them even more comfortable for everyday use.

  • Besides the usual pastels, neon colors and jewel tones are also very popular this year. This year’s hottest handbags wear the color of germ stones: ruby red, emerald green, sapphire blue, and purple amethyst.
    Jewel toned handbags can be found in different shades of these germs, from the deeper tones to pale hues. Neon colors are also back in fashion, bringing back the 80s retro vibe. Wearing a neon colored handbag or clutch is a great way to bring a burst of color and add some fun to a neutral toned outfit.

    Bags with chain links seem to be a great choice for this year. These are very stylish accessories on handbags and clutches as well. When talking about chain straps, over packing your handbag might be uncomfortable. If you don't like simple bag designs and you search for a funkier look, choose a handbag with just a short chain link, to accentuate your style. This small detail can add a glam to your whole appearance.

    One of the biggest trends is perforated leather. We saw this being used by Rebecca Minkoff, previewed it with YSL, and Prada is implementing perforated leather for many of their bags. For Spring 2010 expect to see perforated leather from Prada, to Jimmy Choo, to Burberry, to Bottega Veneta. Prada’s perforated leather has an extremely sporty vibe which is largely due in part to the shape of the bags they are using it on (note the Prada Roll Bag). While Prada’s look is very sporty, we have an array of designers using perforated leather in various ways to give the bags a fresh spring look. The type of perforation varies by designer. Some are uses larger holes while others are using more uniform small holes. There are also options for bags that only feature perforation in certain spots but not all over. When it comes down to it, adding a perforated leather bag to your collection may be trendy for Spring 2010, but if you choose wisely you may find a bag that works in your collection forever.

    If you would like to add some hippie feel to your look, fringy boho-chic handbags are a perfect choice. Trendy tribal patterns, bold prints, fringes and tassels are all characteristic of a slouchy boho handbag. The boho-chic glamour of these bags transforms them into some really exciting accessories for a stylish look.
