The most important handbag trends of the year

The runways of Paris, Milan, London and New York have shown that many old acquaintances made it into the pocket trends of 2018. Classics like the bucket bag, red handbags and fringed bags are included. From last season, extra large models as well as bags carried in the hand managed to maintain their position. While transparent models, fanny packs and functional bags will set a new course next year. We have compiled for you the most important bag trends 2018


At the latest, since Mansur Gavriel generated endless waiting lists with his Bucket Bag in 2015, the pouch bag has returned in a big way. That’s not surprising: their round shape is timeless design and at the same time creates enough storage space for everyday life. After a short break in recent seasons, the Bucket Bag 2018 is back – and more successful than ever; to be seen among others by Fendi in a mini version (see picture above).

Why settle for one bag when you can have two? The stylists probably thought so when they put together the looks of the Spring / Summer Runways 2018. At Chanel the models wore a big and a small model, at Tod’s two identical bags in different colors and Chloé launched a new model that combines two pockets (see picture above).


The revival of the noughties also brings back the rhinestones! Perhaps in memory of Paris Hilton and Britney Spears – icons of fashion of the 2000s – labels such as Valentino, Chloé and Miu Miu occupied their handbags with rhinestones. A sparkling appearance and the counterpart to the functional bag.

If there is a color that dominates the accessories world at the moment, and that is also seen on many handbags on the Runways for Spring / Summer 2018, then the red. Red bags are falling, red bags signal power like here at Valentino (see picture above) – good prospects for the year 2018!
