Raffia bags or iconic shopping bags coexist with sophisticated leather versions of the most famous models: even for spring summer 2021, bags are the most useful accessory a woman can have.
This season presents us a wide range of trends in bags: some are classic while others are more innovative, some are simple while others are incredibly weird.
Some trends, as in the case of raffia and more natural materials, derive from the seasons of previous years, which also include round bags, whether small or maxi.
Rope or net bags
Bags in woven fabric, mostly in shades of beige and straw, but often touched with a little color, which adds a playful and holiday mood. Longchamp re-invented Le Pliage in net-version, just like Prada or Missoni.
Lovers of natural materials and rustic style will certainly appreciate raffia/straw bags, a trend that has been going on for a few seasons already and it is also embraced by luxury brands. Is it worth risking the purchase or will they be replaced by a new trend next season? Vanessa Bruno and Dolce&Gabbana play with colors, Gucci and Celine are more serious, while Marni is very versatile (both for holidays or city).
Intrecciato leather bags
If you like the idea of a woven leather bag but you don’t like straw very much, you might like these bags. One name above all: Bottega Veneta, which has made of intrecciato its signature. Also Fendi can be a great choice for this style. Woven leather bags come in a wide variety of colors, shapes and sizes – have you chosen yours?
Small tote bags
Small backpacks and shoulder bags, crossbody style or even mini-buckets, are still very current and are part of the spring summer 2021 trends. If you like this style, Jacquemus will be a must, but you can opt also for YSL or Stella McCartney.
Bags or boxes?
Like circular bags, box bags are one of the biggest bag trends of 2021, but they’ve been around for a few years already… Box bags are quirky, they often have a retro appeal, and although they are a bit tricky to wear for daily use, we really like them as special occasion bags. In this selection: Jacquemus, Stella McCartney and Fendi.
Regardless of whether you wear a backpack, shoulder bag or classy evening bag, drawstring bags are a huge hit among summer bags 2021. In this selection: Loewe, Balenciaga and Burberry.
Perhaps the bucket is a bag that is more summer than winter in the common imagination: for 2021 it is a style that never fades, thanks to its design it is in fact a bag that is always spacious and comfortable and works well from day to night. Dior, Gucci, Etro… make your choice!
