Handbag Fashion Review: London Fashion Week 2009

Luella accessorizes its stylish creations with rigid pochettes and clutches always clasped in the hand, as a symbol of undisputed prestige and refinement, as well as softer shoulder bags, larger bags which are not worn on the shoulder but held in the hand from the strap or the handles. These bags are provided with wide, refined and, without doubt, comfortable leather straps and handles which however are not used. Smaller handbags and clutches, on the other hand, are provided with short straps made of silver or golden brass chains, in order to make these items and your look utterly chic and elegant. Their colors are almost all neutral and very soft, contrasting with the vivid colors of the dresses.

Paul Smith too agrees with the idea of the handbag ( no matter big or small) being clasped in the hand, like a special occasion purse, possibly made in restrained tones of colors such as white, light grey and beige because, these are the most fashionable and elegant colors for a woman of class and style.

His point of view is perfectly shared by Vivienne Westwood Red Label who sends her top models down the catwalk clasping small handbags and pochettes in their hand, even though most of them are enriched with shoulder-straps made of silver brass chains. Colors here are different: electric blue, pink, beige, light grey and white: many different tonalities to match your style and mood!

A more classic style is, on the other hand, proposed by House of Holland, which though it also favours clasping the handbag in the hand, gives the woman the option to wear it on her shoulder if she prefers. Its collection offers small clutches elegantly enriched by short straps made of golden chains, alongside very wide (sometimes exaggerated) tote bags worn on the shoulder as if they were simple shoulder bags. Colors are strong and dynamic because the main task is capturing attention and imposing your own style everywhere you go.

Concluding this short analysis, we can definitely affirm that London fashion too has been captured by the innovative trends which have characterized the other European and World fashion parades: trendy colors, (with some exceptions), are the same, as are the handbags' styles. The clutch is enjoying a new positive era, re-discovered and appreciated by all the most famous designers of the world; the shoulder bag continues to have great success, but clasping it in your hand, despite its shape and its dimensions is a MUST; but the most important revelation, in our opinion is the return of the elegant, classical purse, the symbol of a woman who really takes care of her beauty and style, that precious complementary accessory which transforms you into a bright and shining star.
