5 brand signature bags we’re excited about for SS20
Whether it’s to keep your daily necessities or to complete your OOTD, get to know the signature bags from these brands.
Every fashion house has an icon – from Chanel’s tweed suits to the Birkin bags from Hermes. And for some, each fashion category has its own signatures, and today we’re looking at bags that are turning into cult accessories this season, fresh off the runway.
We’ve rounded up our top 5 picks, ranging from bags inspired by equestrian heritage, to new classics that will become your new everyday essential.
Burberry Pocket Bag
This uniquely structured bag from Burberry is a new contemporary signature for the British fashion house that blends an old school look with modern aesthetics. First seen on the SS20 runway, this contemporary design was inspired by the Burberry archive and stamped with a logo graphic. The Pocket Bag is made out of premium canvas and topstitched calf leather, featuring a front pocket stamped with Burberry’s Horseferry print. Completing the look and functionality of the bag are reinforced top handles and detachable shoulder straps for ease of versatility.
Longchamp Le Mini Pliage Cuir
Whether it’s for running quick errands fashionably or having it as a dainty yet bold accessory to events, the miniature version of Longchamp’s iconic Pliage Cuir bag is probably one of the most adorable fashion items to behold. This mini version can be carried by hand or as a pouch, with its short and removable shoulder straps. The inspiration for Le Pliage came from origami, which is reflected in its light, foldaway design. Adding to its unique quality is its material – having been fashioned out of crocodile-style cowhide.
Loewe Horseshoe Bag
Inspired by Loewe’s Spanish heritage, its iconic saddle-style bag takes on the form of a U-shaped horseshoe with a silhouette reminiscent of classic Spanish castagnettes. It’s crafted out of smooth calfskin surrounding a soft nappa drawstring sac. The side latched metallic pin also pays tribute to the Gate family. The Horseshoe bag is finished off with adjustable straps to ensure trademark versatility, whether one prefers a crossbody or shoulder-carry style.
Balmain’s new iconic bag, the BBuzz is more than a simple play on alliteration. The bold carry-on reflects the brand’s exciting and engaging spirit of its presence today. It sports Olivier Rousteing’s most familiar signatures – from the thick fringe and cushy quilted leather, to its eye-catching embellishments and bold patterns. The BBuzz bag carries strong lines that reflect the maison’s renowned tailoring, and is adorned with Balmain’s recently-introduced monogram – a striking “B” on the front. Though young in spirit, the BBuzz bag pays homage to the brand’s legacy of decades of fine European craftsmanship.
Givenchy The Eden
Givenchy reinvents the classic handbag with their sleek, statement bag – The Eden. The range is crafted from smooth calfskin or lambskin leather (alongside other fine textiles), and shaped with beveled edges and contrasting top-stitching that reflects the maison’s couture necklines. They’re finished off with adjustable shoulder straps and bear a satin-finish gold Givenchy logo clasp to exude sophistication and luxury. The range comes in a variety of rich yet elegant hues – from red velvet to to lush emerald. The Eden bag is a fashion necessity that’s timelessly stylish, and isn’t bound to fashion seasons.
