In years past, shearling handbags were popping up left and right around this time. Now that we are officially in Fall, I feel like we should be seeing more shearling bags out there. Right? With so few on store shelves, it’s starting to feel like handbag designers are passing on this classic trend. So what happened to the Shearling Handbag Trend?!
Shearling appears on many cozy pieces from vests and coats to scarves and boots. However when it comes to shearling, handbags are by far my favorite. Here are a couple of my favorite picks from the Fall / Winter 2016 collection.
Brunello Cucinelli Shearling Monili Bag – Here at Neiman Marcus – $1275
This is one designer we don’t see too often. But Brunello Cucinelli does shearling handbags and they do them very well. I love the shaggier look of this piece, it offers a fresher look than traditional shearling. I also love the contrast created by the beaded strap running down the center.
Fendi Peekaboo Shearling Satchel Bag – Here at Neiman Marcus – $7250
Fendi probably has the largest selection of shearling handbags right now. The color-blocking seen on this piece offers a unique look to the shearling trend. I love the neutral tones, they are perfect for fall. If the color-block isn’t your style. Over at Barneys they have micro-sized jewel blue.
