In The Bag: 22 It Handbags For SS22

Arm candy ahoy! The handbags that are making a statement this season.

From shimmery metallics through to crochet and basket weaves, texture figures prominently in this season’s handbag trends. Also in the mix are oversized logos, tonal tans, ruching, fringing and fancy bling finishes. In the world of arm candy, there is a lot going on right now.

These are the numbers that have caught our eye; and though most of them come in at somewhat eye-watering prices, their more accessible counterparts are already hitting the ever-poised high street at a pace. But for now, we can take inspiration from the pieces that will inspire the season as it filters down and into our wardrobes.
