After the warm and brown tones of the autumn (here is more inspiration) and winter, the spring will make room for a little bit more colour. Who doesn’t love a blushing pink, lovely lavender or blooming blue. When the leather is tanned, we can give it almost any colour we want. You can do it yourself or you can buy a pre-coloured piece at your local leather shop. But what should we make for the spring/summer 2017 to shine with your very own made bag following the latest trends?
Searching for the spring/summer 2017 trends
Once all the fashion shows are over I cuddle up on the couch with Pinterest for hours and hours. I will search for the overall bag trends for the next season. Though this time, when I was looking for the spring/summer trends, it was very contradicting. Because the most obvious trend who almost all fashion houses included in their collection was either a bag almost bigger than the model or so mini you would almost miss it (luckily we didn’t!!!), the maxi or the mini bag!
MINI or MAXI
My personal favourite this season is the mini bag! We have seen a mini Birkin or a tiny Chanel and I just love them. If only the prices would also minimise …You would say the smaller the bag, the quicker you would have finished the project or that it might be easier. Though, in my opinion, it might be the complete opposite. All those small details and not that much body to work with. Well well, I might just try to turn one of my earlier DIY bag – designs into a mini bag.
So what is your favourite: a mini Birkin in lovely lavender or a maxi Celine in blooming blue? If you haven’t made up your mind, check out my nests Pinterest boards MINI and MAXI bags on Florine Leather & Style.
