You can divide all handbag lovers into generally two groups: people who are a lot more interested in trends and people who are a lot more interested in longevity. In recent years, the trend people have been winning, as the luxury accessories industry pumps out fun, not-so-functional tiny bags, fanny packs, highly embellished pieces, and logo bags. If you’re just trying to find a neutral, functional, glamorous work bag to carry for the next year or two, things haven’t been quite as exciting. If you take a look at Tom Ford‘s spring 2019 runway, though, you might find cause for optimism.
In contrast to the colorful, highly embellished, heavily beaded bags on Ford’s fall 2018 runway, this group was notably a lot more subtle. also significant was the fact that the bags in question were all new designs for the brand, including camera, tote and hobo styles. The cam bags were all in what I’m assuming was embossed croc, while the totes and hobos were made of exceptionally soft-looking smooth leather. They were big and simple, with the only branding being a small bit of hardware in the shape of an inverted T, plus the designer’s initials in small print.
The bags’ designs are restrained and mature, but not old-feeling because the details are kept very clean. They’re best for the office or errands, which is likely where a lot of buyers take their bags, anyway. check out all the bags from the runway below.
