Sil­ver, red and pop art

> We peep at the must-have bags for next year

The Sun (Malaysia) - - STYLE -

SIL­VER is go­ing to be the new trend colour for bags in the mid­dle of next year. “Sil­ver will be mas­sive, even though it is has tra­di­tion­ally been re­served for cold weather,” says fash­ion ex­pert Martin Wut­tke. “But qual­ity trumps sea­son.”

We’ve taken a peep at the up­com­ing hand­bag fash­ions, thanks to a bian­nual trade fair at Of­fen­bach, Ger­many where lux­ury man­u­fac­tur­ers lift the veil on what they have de­signed and what fac­to­ries will soon be ship­ping for the north­ern hemi­sphere sum­mer.

Red is also in. This in­cludes “all the pri­mary col­ors, like a rain­bow” as trend scout Wut­tke said in a re­port for the re­cent fair.

In par­tic­u­lar, lug­gage might be neon green or pink. Suit­cases can also be sil­ver, olive, jade or a strong pas­tel shade.

Pat­terned bags will also be pop­u­lar. Geo­met­ric tri­an­gles are in, as well as large flow­ers, comics and pop art de­signs – even on suit­cases. Em­broi­dered de­tails are also be­ing seen more and more in up­com­ing col­lec­tions.

“Uni­sex is an­other great new trend,” says Wut­tke, point­ing out mod­ern duf­fle bags as an ex­am­ple.
