Chief Bag Lover,



Who doesn’t love a ‘top trends’ list, I know I do. So here’s my latest list of the hottest bag trends right now…


Huge right now, quite literally, is the trend of statement handles. Whether they be oversized, studded, made of rope, gilded – the point is that handles are now becoming a feature in themselves. No longer just a way of picking up your bag; now it’s a bag pick me up!

Givenchy Bag



Remember as a kid when you used to get your empty chip packet and shrink it in the oven? (If you don’t you’ve had a deprived childhood – sorry you missed out on this!). Anyway, this trend reminds me of it. These bags literally look like shrunken down versions of ‘real bags’. Of course, these bags are real, only thing is, if you need to fit more than a Tic Tac in some of them, you might struggle. Cute but not sure how practical this trend is. But hey, when has fashion ever really been practical; it should be about fun after all. And fun this is.

Valentino Bag

Proof that we live in a crazy world of opposites and extremes, the other big trend is big; actually, make that massive bags! Yep, oversized bags are hot right now. With these bags you can fit the whole Tic Tac factory inside; the only problem is, you may not be able to pick it up after you’ve done so. A Chiropractor’s dream.

Two of my faves are by Sonia Rykiel and Loewe.

Just think of these as the bucket bag evolved. Fashion is most often an evolution instead of revolution, and this is a great and beautiful example. I personally love this trend, a ‘cinch’ always feels soft and feminine so a winner in my book.

My top picks for ‘cinchers’ right now are Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham, Altuzuarra, Givenchy and Marni.

But no matter what bag you choose, remember to always treat it with love; on its own handbag hanger. After all, when our favourite outfit comes off, it’s slipped carefully onto its hanger. Jackets, t-shirts, tights, they all have their own place. But sadly, our treasured, beautiful bags haven’t.

Until now. With thh – the handbag hanger; your bags have a place where they belong. And no matter where in the world you are, you and your bags can enjoy our brilliant Aussie invention because we ship worldwide. We love it, and we know you will too, so jump on the handbag hanger trend.

      Lol im the same way. I’m thinking maybe the Louis Vuitton or the Victoria Beckham. They’re very cute.

    I’d love to carry the tiny bags but I’d look ridiculous and it wouldn’t serve a function for me. And I think my back would go out with the gigantic ones. But I appreciate the beauty of all of them.

    I have never seen bags like some of these! They are really cute! I’m not sure I could survive with some of the tiny ones though. I would definitely have to limit what I take.

      I agree! Maybe it would be a fit for a work event. Someone had mentioned putting business cards in them.

    Love the variety. So interesting and every single one is different!

  7. August 31, 2017 / 12:42 am

    I’m totally amazed at the variety of bags. I’ve collected some of the top models of bags. Luxurious.

    Such a cool post! Those tiny bags really do look TINY! And the big bags look huge! I don’t know if I could pull either of those off. And it’s crazy that both huge and tiny bags are on trend right now.

      The tiny bags would not work for me either. I love big bags but I can never find my stuff!

    Perhaps if I transitioned to a small bag, I would stop carrying around so much of my kids’ junk! These are all cute bag options.

      Haha! They’d probably still find ways for you to bring their stuff lol.

    I love the idea of all these bag. I think they all have some type of use. I love luxury bags.

    Those bags are cute, I like the little green one. This is the first time I heard of shrinking chip packets in the oven – that must have been fun.
