Spring is coming! It always brings good mood, the sun, the warmth and, of course, new trends. As we have discussed the latest fashion trends SS 2016 and found out what would be in, let’s discuss the most significant accessory of all times, the bags.
Bag Fashion Trend № 1. Hold Your Bag in Your Hand
Yes, your bag shall be in your hand, even though it is has a shoulder strap and has a suitable for carrying on your shoulder design, even though it is a backpack or kind of a knapsack made of the finest leather by Céline Fashion house.

Christian Dior recons it’ a good idea to get a nice white tote and carry it in you hands:
Trend #2. Bag in Red
Even though according to Pantone the most trendy colors of the year 2016 is Rose Quartz and Serenity, red is the most frequent color of a bag in spring and summer 2016
Pantone Inc Matching System calls this color Fiesta, a tone of red with a yellowish undertone.
Fiesta is one of top ten most popular colors for spring and summer 2015

Trend #3 Like a French or American Flag: Bags in Red, Blue and White
Coco Chanel believed that a girl should be of two things – classy and beautiful. Some designers believe that your summer handbag should be of three colors – red, navy blue and white.
The bags are really look classy and, if not beautiful (it’s something too much to say that a bag is beautiful, isn’t it?) then cute:
Same color scheme is available at Giorgio Armani and Chanel
Mark Jacobs, who is by the way, a native New Yorker, made a show that was 100 per cent american one, a kind of a love letter to the american way of life, popcorn and movie industry are included.
Trend № 4. Protective Coloration
Protective coloration is the ability of animals to change their color and thus to blend with the surrounding landscape. Conventionally, the idea to make a bag of the same print as the suit, or to create a suit so that it corresponded with the print of the bag was represented by numerous fashion houses.
Why conventionally, you might ask. Because this idea does not make a bag inconspicuous – on the contrary, the look you get is incredibly elegant and stylish.
You can see lots of examples at Chanel SS 2016, and here is just some of them
Match your bag with your outfit, even though your bag is non-Chanel
Gucci contributed to the trend as it follow
So did Dolce & Gabbana
Trend #5: Snakeskin Bags SS 2016
The designers borrowed this idea also from the Nature, ages ago. All kinds of animal prints have been in for at least 5 years, but in spring 2016 reptile prints will replace tiger and leopard coloration. After viewing hundreds of catwalk looks we’ve come to the conclusion that couturiers went into cahoots and made a collective foray into a giant serpentarium.
And while Prada restricts itself to details and furnishings made of snakeskin,
Louis Vuitton takes no prisoners – small suitcases and totes by LV are fully covered with snake scales
However, in the Spring 2016 collection of Miuccia Prada’s second brand, Miu Miu, the handbags really reminded snakes, probably due to their bizarre straps.
Well, Miu Miu SS 2016 collection was arty and crafty, whatever it might mean. Most of pieces were glamorous, sexy and… outrageous, at least in a way. Miuccia Prada (she graduated with a PhD in political science at the University of Milan, have you heard?) paid her tribute to the time we all live
Bag Trend #6. The Best Bag for Spring and Summer 2016 is… Two Bags!
The designers were determined on the point – why should you have just one bag, if you could have two in one go?
Chanel advocated for that rather full-heartedly
A clutch, a messenger bag, a suit-case, a tote – you can literally match any bags to get in the trend
Dolce & Gabbana lobbied the movement with its inborn Italian intovercy. The brand went lavish with color schemes, prints and decor
Trend #7. Last but not Least: Stripes on Handbags SS 2016
Stripes are very popular in spring and summer 2016, and stripes on handbags and rucksacks are no exclusion. Take a striped bag when wearing an outfit in monochrome – and your bag will be a bright accent of the look, or take such a bag when wearing something striped – to get your look even more sophisticated.
…Commenting on the Dolce & Gabbana show, Stefano Gabbana said that he and his partner didn’t believe in fashion for trends anymore, and that all they wanted to show was emotions. They succeeded in doing so we believe
