THE HANDBAG “IT” LIST
Composed of recognizable elements that can create a talking point. Often more youthful and whimsical in nature, these include themes such as animals (owls and birds were highlighted), transportation, numbers, letters, food, hearts, holiday items, etc. Conversational handwritten letters on satchel, wallets and clutches.
One of the most popular types of designs in the market. There are countless variations, and their style can vary greatly from soft and delicate to edgy and dark. They continue to dominate across the apparel, interiors, and accessories market. Double handle satchel is a classic yet very important handbag style.
This is a reinterpreted version of high- end fashion designed for a slightly older but fun- loving woman. The prints tend to be bright, bold, and larger in scale. Bold Color: brights and solid colored neons. Daytime Clutches in bright colors with enough room for your daily essentials.
The junior category caters to the 14 to 24 year old market who look for trendy, hip, experimental and bold designs. Prints are influenced by high-end fashion, street culture, and music. Bows and cupcakes are sophisticated and uptown and yet fun.
Refer to prints created from geometric forms such as squares, circles, triangles, diamonds, plaids and rectangles. They are used in every sector of the market in all shapes and sizes. Within this category, you can find different types of geos which are classified further by their technique or visual reference. Color blocking is still popular. Black and white geometric patterns and color blocked are hot. Look for handbags with two or three shades on them, preferably colors you would not expect together such as pink, black and beige.
