FRESH TREATMENTS & MATERIALS ADD EXCITEMENT TO FALL HANDBAGS
Handbag silhouettes don’t hold any surprises for next fall. However, new materials and treatments will give them a true makeover. Fluffy white fur, soft shearling, woolly fringe and leather tassels are some surface treatments on handbags bound to grab attention. The 70s patchwork trend should also translate well into bags together with folkloric print and embroidery. Foliage motifs have segued from jewelry to fabrics to embossed leathers for bags, in tune with the season. Sparkle and shiny patent and metallic leathers remain an integral part of fall as well. A bit of whimsy tops off any handbag assortment with a smile.
