TOP 50 HANDBAGS SPRING 2019

There are plenty of houses for which the runways shows are but a simple excuse to showcase their accessories. Skim any luxury holding companies annual report and one will quickly discover that while most of the marketing is around ready-to-wear, the accessories are what really supports the house. More often than not up to 80% of the sales are generated from handbags and shoes.

This season handbags called up to carry that weight, with both Proenza Schouler and Jacquemus showcases handbags large enough to travel in. Newcomer Roberta Einer caught our attention with her bohemian needlework tweed together with oversized cording.

Balmain’s clear lucite handbag carrying trays served as a double entendre, holding a handbag and promoting the brand simultaneously. Alexander McQueen’s floral motifs caught our editor’s eyes as a seasonal standout that we expect plenty of other handbag lines to emulate, while Ottolinger’s Christa Bösch and Cosima Gadient mashed up genres, printed canvas, and trims to present a seasonal standout.

Of course Fendi, Burberry, Chanel, Prada, Dior, Valentino and Louis Vuitton continue to reinvent their core category with Neo-classical silhouettes complete with logos and monograms.

Here our AARB Magazine’s picks for the Top 50 Handbags of Spring 2019.

HUMAN LUGGAGE: TREND MEN’S SPRING 2019

It looks as if designers are fed up with airline baggage fees this season. Who needs a suitcase when you can fit all you need in the clothes that you’re wearing?

Human luggage was abundant in men’s showing from London, Milan and Paris. Perhaps it was the evolution of utility wear, or perhaps streetwear packed for an overnight. Either way designers like Dsquared2, Lanvin, Off-White, Rick Owens, and Louis Vuitton all found comfort in providing storage options for ones comfort. The Impression is delighted with the trend that gives ‘carry on’ a whole new meaning. Now if we could just address those in-flight meals!

LANDSCAPE PRINTS: TREND MEN’S SPRING 2019

Distant and tropical lands were beckoning designers this season resulting in a bevy of landscape graphics taking over the runway….New TREND.

Suburban Simpson’s home pop-up at Virgil Abloh’s Off-White while neon camp trees populated printed tops and sweaters at Prada, Valentino, Amiri, MSGM, and Paul Smith. All signified a longing for a trip but none as fanciful as Virgil Abloh for Louis Vuitton men’s where the landscape was literally the yellow brick road from The Wizard Of Oz. We think it wise to pay close attention to the man behind the curtain.

JUMPSUITS: TREND MEN’S SPRING 2019

Dries Van Noten, Balmain, Louis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen, and Sacai all embraced their inner mechanic to suit up for work trend this season and AARB Magazine is right there along with them as who doesn’t love a grown-up onesies with pockets.

VIBRANT SUITS: TREND MEN’S SPRING 2019

BOUDOIR: TREND FALL 2018

From the bedroom to the runway, the fashion world is flooded with this risquè boudoir fashion trend for Fall 2018.

The “boudoir” style is derived from outfits that women would wear in their private room or bedroom. Combinations of silk, lace, and sheer fabrics create a feminine look that is sexy while still being demure in its own way. This style is for the daring, boss ladies of the world who are craving to make a statement.

Dolce & Gabbana and Alexander Wang both portrayed the darker, more night appropriate side of the boudoir trend. Designers like Blumarine and John Galliano used light, flowing fabrics that exude femininity. Peter Pilotto used a spectrum of vibrant hues and satin, robe-inspired ensembles, that bring the worlds of comfort and fashion together in a unique way.

LEOPARD: TREND FALL 2018

Fashion’s love affair with all things ‘wild kingdom’ continued for fall 2018 with the leopard taking the lead as king of the catwalks. Leopard is traditionally the most neutral of animal prints, embracing a spot of black to go with fashion’s black uniform.

Tom Ford, who just went fur free, leveraged the motif in acidics, neons, and dashes of beading. Michael Kors, a long time fan of the feline, was spot-on with proportional touches of realistic patterns while Max Mara went head to toe to this season. Either way there are some powerful cats like looks pouncing off the cat-walks for Fall 2018.
