Marie Claire’s SS14 Handbag Wish List

  • Spring handbags have landed in stores and we can't wait to get our new season arm candy fix. Shop the tomboy totes, new school backpacks and holiday-ready bucket bags for SS14.

    Handbags have always been one of our favourite fashion accessories, and with a new season comes plenty of exciting fresh bag styles.

    For SS14, the key is in the design details. Chic python textures from Michael Kors, iridescent metallic finishes and Valentino-inspired tassels are among some of our favourite handbag features from the catwalks.

    We’re also revisiting old school favourites this spring/summer, with a series of chic backpacks, as seen on the Chanel and Marios Schwab runways. And continuing with the tomboy trend, our handbag favourite, the tote, has been stripped back for spring, with the focus falling on strong, masculine shapes and tough textures a la Miu Miu SS14.

    But, alongside all this androgynous styling, Charlotte Olympia, Sophia Webster and Olympia Le-Tan encourage us to find the fun in SS14 accessorising, using slogans and brights, whereas Vionnet introduce us to the sweetest handbag style of them all, ‘the mini’.
