The Rise of the Super Bag

If the 2017 runways were anything to go by, one thing is for sure – statement accessories are definitely here to stay, and we are seeing the rise of a different type of bag on the shoulders of our favourite fashion bloggers and influencers. The ‘super bag’ is in, designed to turn heads and make a bold statement about the owner.

From Loewe’s famous multi-coloured elephant cross-body bag that every fashion blogger is vying to get their hands on, to the ultra-embellished fur-handled and gilded satchel bags on the runways at Prada, designer brands and high street stalwarts are creating quirky accessories that aim to bring out the personality of the buyer.

With the rise of the super bag, normal and traditional trends are taken to the next level. River Island stylist Suzie said: “I love a statement bag worn with a pared back outfit, it helps the bag make more of an impact.”

So whether you love a bit of furry texture to add to a simple shirt and jeans outfit, or want to add drama with an oversized tote to upgrade a relaxed outfit, here are a few super bag trends that have emerged this season:
Sparkle and Embellishments Bags this season are adorned with crystals, pearls, rhinestones, glitter and lots of other cute embellishments – the perfect accessory for making a bold statement with your evening attire.

Faux Fur Textures
Furry accents are everywhere on bags this season – from furry handles to the entire bag – and instantly add texture to an outfit.

Oversized Bags
The bigger the better. With the rise of mobile working, tote bags are showing up bigger than ever – all the better to throw your laptop and tech essentials in when you’re on the go. With room for all your gear, you’ll never miss a beat when stepping out in the city with an oversized bag on your arm.

Brilliant Hues
If you love colour, then the super bags of this season are perfect for you – think bags with every colour under the sun thrown together. Colourful bags are one of the easiest ways to inject personality into any outfit.

Sharp Structure
Square vanity boxes, rounded bowler bags and sharp ladylike satchel bags will add a chic and sleek style to a relaxed and laidback ensemble. From funky embroidery and metallic finishes to more minimalist styles, the sharp and sleek purse will complete your whole look.

It’s not only the designers that are making their mark on the statement super bags of the season. The high street is full of affordable quirky options to match the trends. River Island’s black faux fur oversized slouch bag or it’s green faux fur colour block tote bag speak perfectly to the super bag trends of the season and are instagram-worthy options for any fashionista looking to add a quirky personal touch to their wardrobe.
