The Runway Edit: Designer Handbag Trends and the Jewelry to Match

When taking on the hectic challenges of life, and getting yourself from A to B, a handbag is the friend you never knew you needed. Whether helping you to make a splash on a first date, job interview or simply carrying your valuables, who says that function and style can’t go hand in hand? This season, designers have outdone themselves by sending the most chic, striking and wild designs down the catwalk. Discover our 5 favorite handbag trends and the jewelry to match!

Dramatic Embellishments

There’s nothing better than a little bit of drama, is there? Thankfully, this season you can channel the drama out of your personal life and into your wardrobe with a selection of dramatically embellished handbags. From shiny metallics to statement red florals, the likes of Marchesa, Oscar De La Renta, and Delpozo have got you covered when it comes to this bold designer handbag trend. Compliment this trend with minimalist Bangle Three Triangles by Kozminka . 

All Black Everything

This season, and in fact for the last few years, entirely monochrome outfits have become commonplace on the runway and throughout collections. Loved by the likes of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, this trend is the perfect opportunity to have some fun with texture. With designers including Alexander Wang and Calvin Klein producing gorgeous black accessories, handbags are a great way to complete a look. Collide suede with slippery leather and black lace. Our pierced kiss bangle in blackened silver can be a perfect combo for this designer handbag trend.


It’s time to take a walk on the wild side. With zany leopard and luxury snake print, animal prints are back in a big way. While animal prints may evoke imagery of Scary Spice, Kat Slater or Absolutely Fabulous, designers including Gabriela Hearst and Ralph Lauren are on a mission to give this look a sophisticated makeover - and we can’t get enough of it. Become at one with nature with our stylish geometrical bangle with blue sapphires in gold.

Make Believe

Who says a bag has to look like a bag? We believe that sometimes fantasy is a lot more fun than real-life, so this playful designer handbag trend is one we can fully get on board with. American designer Thom Browne’s latest collection of brands is the perfect example of when fashion doesn’t take itself too seriously. By transforming bags into animals and other items of clothing, Browne’s bags are as much wearable art as functional accessories. Combine this trend with our bangle sweet kisses.

More is More

Minimalism has reigned supreme for a while now, but this may be coming to an end if this designer handbag trend has anything to do with it. With vibrant color clashes, jewels to die for and eye-popping patterns, Tory Burch and Anna Sui are our go-to girls. Ramp up the drama in our bangle with three evil eyes.
