2009 Handbag Trends

2009 looks set to continue were 2008 left off with the trend for strong and bright colours in handbag design (good news for us red handbag lovers!). Amongst the predicted top trends this year:

The Clutch bag, always a favorite on a night out.
Patent Handbags, stand out from the crowd.
The Hobo, slouchy day style handbags.

Fashion experts continue to say that the patent glossy handbag is going to be essential in everyone's wardrobe this season and in red they certainly catch everyone's attention. The retro look is still going strong on the catwalks as is chain detailing and this year this has moved more towards functional chains rather than just the detailing chains of last season. Many red handbags feature thick usable beautifully detailed chains as opposed to straps. Also look out for ornate buckle designs this season.

Without doubt the trendiest red handbag design at the moment is the clutch they are in every designers range this season whether they be simple, embroidered, futuristic or vintage every label has them. The only problem is as always the designers are pushing us towards smaller and smaller handbags and what we need to carry in them is more and more! - you know mobile phone, purse, make-up etc. The clutch bag is great for the night on the town or your favourite restaurant but when it comes to a practical handbag for the day thank goodnesss the other big trend this season is over sized handbag. Don't be afraid to stand out from the crowd this season as the other major trend really does seem to be bold and out of the ordinary.

This season really is the season to go out on a limb and get that wild outrageous red handbag you always dreamt about!
