NOVELTY BAGS ARE GO!
As far as It bags go, we never expected this niche trend to hit the big time…
We’ve barely scratched the surface of 2017 and there’s already an abundance of new trends being road-tested by the fashionsphere’s most seasoned icons. Among them, you can always count on the fact that there’ll be a new bag style that’ll make you question every other handbag you’ve ever purchased.
It’s clear that every designer was keen to get 2017 off to a positive start – and none more so than Loewe. On a solo mission to infinitely lift our moods, the Spanish fashion house has bestowed upon us the cutest bag known to humanity; its Elephant cross-body. OK, so it might cost a cool £875, but as soon as you lay your eyes on it, you’ll instantly feel a zillion times better.
E-com guru Lyst has revealed that you – ye, you – have been searching for the bag in your thousands, contributing to a 300 per cent spike in searches and a 128 per cent increase in sales. It’s no wonder, then, that Zara’s created this adorable homage for a teeny fraction of the Loewe price. But if elephants aren’t your thing (there’s a sentence I’d never thought I’d write) there are plenty of other fashion-forward fish in the sea. From unicorns and lobsters to pizza and rainbows, it’s clear that
outside-the-box accessories are where it’s at.
