The runway shows might have taken a backseat this year, but global trends have continued to dominate fashion regardless. For many people, the fascination with luxury handbags is still at an all time high. According to a report by Art Market Research this year, coveted designer bags are leading the consumers’ interest in the collectible and investment category, rising beyond luxury art, cars and whisky!
A slew of high-end fashion brands have upgraded their handbag line-up for the incoming Spring and Resort season of 2021. And you’ll agree, unapologetically, we all do have some extra room to accommodate the latest, trendsetting bags in our closets.
Prep yourselves and check out our curated list of the new ‘It’ bags below.
