Year after year, you have probably heard me talk about how the metallic trend has resurfaced once again. It is just one of those “trends” that is recycled every year. A little hard to call it a trend then, huh? The catch here is that the metallic trend is traditionally something you see in the Fall. Well it looks like designers are breaking tradition because metallic handbags are popping up everywhere in the Spring/Summer 2014 collections! What I think makes this warm weather metallics trend different is the brightness. Rather than traditional Fall-like metallic colors (e.g. gold, bronze, gunmetal), the handbags I have been seeing have a more Spring/Summer feel to them. Check out the styles I have listed below and I think that will explain what I mean a little more. Not everything is from the Spring/Summer 2014 collections, but they certainly fit in with the spirit of the trend.
Jimmy Choo Charm Holographic Patent Clutch. Available at Net-a-Porter. $995
When most people think of metallics, holographic is not something that comes to mind. I really like it though because it reflects different colors giving a rainbow-like effect. At the same time, you have that pretty silver background.
Diane von Furstenberg 440 Metallic Bag. Available at Net-a-Porter. $295
Rose gold alone has a lighter feeling to it! But this lovely handbag takes it one step further by pairing that rose gold with light silver (it almost looks white). Gorgeous!
Saint Laurent Letters Metallic Clutch. Available at Net-a-Porter. $990
Who says metallics have to look like metal? I love bright color metallics! The bright blue and green on this clutch is absolutely stunning! It is also available in Red/Pink.
