Do you also know the feeling of the fall, lightening some candles, those warm and cosy sweaters, hot choco with marshmallows … all the rain in Holland… The first few things are welcome but all the raining makes me longing for the Spring-Summer 2018. Luckily for me, I’ve already spotted some trends! So on those grey and rainy days, I can start sketching for the next seasons to come…
Big Bag hardware
I’ve spent so much time lately talking about bag hardware and locks, I almost start to wonder if I’m biased in my trendspotting. But you just can’t miss it… I didn’t know it at the time, but Big Bag hardware might be the latest trend for the collection of spring-summer 2018. I’ve seen massive chain bags, mega locks and huge handle rings, etc.. LOVE IT!
Crazy Animal bag
Nope, it’s not about the materials this time. It’s all about the shape! From little tiger locks to dachshund shaped bags, you name it and it might become a trend in the spring-summer 2018! We already have seen some of the bags on the streets but now is definitely the time to find your favourite animal.
Paint and Print
Pop-art is back! Well, did it ever go away…? That might be a good question to ask… But nevertheless, it is used all over the bags, from little text balloons to complete comics. Not only pop-art is seen, but also just ‘art’. Paintings all over the leather bags are not only a trend of the autumn/winter of this year but it continues in the spring-summer 2018.
I love the big bag-hardware trend, but where do I find such big locks or chains….? Time to do some sketching and googling… What is your favourite spring-summer 2018 trend?
